You people will argue about anything! Its obvious that Florida is way better than North Carolina, otherwise I'd be living there instead of here. Nobody is also bothering to mention that its about a 7 hour drive from Orlando to Atlanta or who knows how long it takes to get to the swampy hell that is N. Carolina. Plus Ozzy, there is also a Green Swamp in Florida - where I might add you may even get to see the skunk ape.
Umm... I've been to both and I like both... but given the choice i'd pick NC. Better people I guess.
You probably ran into all the relocated northerners while you were in Florida - that would give anyone a bad experience! This is a joke people - I don't want a rain of yankee hate pouring down on me - ya'll.
Nah it wasn't that. Lol, the people in FL were not unfriendly, but the people in NC were EXTRA friendly. It was like they were all your grandmother or something lol
I was just checking and you can get a plane ticket from orlando to here for as low as $118 round trip depending on the day you want to fly. That'll be cheaper if you don't want to bring the family along.
I'm pretty sure that Florida has more CPs
your point.....................its 7 hours from my front door to Helena........in good weather........i do that drive every couple of months and dont think anything of it..........hell occationally ill get out of bed early on a Saturday morning..........drive 5 hours.......have lunch with my sister........do a lil shopping.........and drive 5 hours home that same day........you guys are wussiesNobody is also bothering to mention that its about a 7 hour drive from Orlando to Atlanta
To quote Larry Mellichamp "The Green Swamp hosts the largest diversity of carnivorous plants in the world. It also holds the most carnivorous plants in terms of sheer numbers of plants. There are probably a million of them throughout the region.
Of course he's talking about the Green Swamp in NC and not the one in Florida.
Lets go over the plants that grow in the Carolina's.
Of course we have Dionea muscipula.. It grows no where else in the world naturally.
We also have quite a few Sarracenias.
There are 6 varieties of flava's.
The varieties are flava, atropurpurea, maxima, ornata, cuprea, and rugeliiWe have S. rubra sub. rubra and jonesii, S.purpurea, S.minor, S.oreophila and S.psittacina. Even though it not native I can show you S. leucophylla.
We have five sundew. D. capillaris, D.brevfolia, D.intermedia, D.rotundifolia and D.filiformis
We have three butterworts, P.lutea, P. caerulea and P.pumila
I don't even know how many bladderworts we have. I can think of about 10 without even trying.
If you count the bladderworts then we have close to 30 different species of cp's growing in the Carolina's.
How many do you have in Florida?
