    I went back up to Pine Grove Furnace without the wife on Saturday to look for CP's, hiking, and geocaching.
    I found some new areas which Drosera rotundifolia was growing. I only found them because of their flower stalks, because no leaves where above the sphagnum moss. I'm moved the moss around and see they are forming their hybernacula. I was surprised at how shaded an area I found plants growing.
    Here's a picture of the Drosera rotundifolia, which you can only see the flower stalk.



    The tree cover where they grow.



    One of the areas I was searching had springs all over the place on the side of the mountain. It was like wall to wall sphagnum carpet.







    And the half way point on the Appalachian Trail.

    Well it looks like you had a good outing!It's amazing that D.rotundifolia,or any other cp could grow covered up by other plants.Those plants may get overgrown next year,as the other plants invade their space.Thank you for sharing the pictures!

    Nice pics! Kinda looks like the woods behind our house. Except that our moss is carpet moss and there`s no D.rotundifolia Lol. It`s so fun to go back there and just sit on a mossed over rock watching the birds chirp and such

    What a beautiful place! How far away from you is that place, Steve? I love carpets of moss like that. Green has to be one of the best colors on earth!

    It's a hour and a half away.
    I hope to find some places closer to home. After seeing how shaded the plants where, gives me some ideas of where to search.

    Hopefully I'll be able to do some searching for CP's in NJ. The wife and I are going to Atlantic City and then Cape May. I might be able to slip away for a while to go hunting. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
