    Visit to Appalachicola National Forest

    Yeah, today my family and I went to the beach, and on the way back my dad decided to take a trip through liberty county. First, we were driving down the road and all of a sudden I spotted a stand of Sarracenia flava and then before I knew it I was seeing literally hundreds of them. I was also surprized to see how dry it was out there, but the plants were still growing.

    Here's a couple of (crappy)pics that don't do justice to the amount of plants that were out there as well as the amount of euphoria that I was feeling





    here are a couple of pics of some stands up close. By the way, what type of S. flava do they look like to you?







    here's a different variety



    and here's a hybrid, my best guess would be S. flava x rosea



    here's some D. capillaris, however there were tons of these things everywhere, you couldn't help but to accidentally step on them.



    in another roadside ditch there were some of these little beauties

    and then finally, whenever we were heading through Hosford I was able to get my dad to take me to the Hosford bog, however, I don't exactly think that I found it.
    I did however find some S. leucophylla that were the most colorful ones that I have ever seen, as well that having the biggest pitcher openings for their size.

    Nice. It is weird to see for the first time, how dry the topsoil can be.

    it was very strange, especially because of the drought. And all of the Sphagnum moss was dead and crispy

    If only it was on my property. Then I could wait till it had multiple growing points and registered it in the ICPS cultivar bank

    I'm not sure, but I'm sure that some CP law expert could chime in any time and alert us on this topic...........
