    Sarracenia bogs in or near Jacksonville, Florida?

    Well, in late June, i will be paying a visit to my father in Jacksonville, FL. i recall seeing some sarras there when i was younger, im sure many of the bogs have been developed over, but was wondering if anyone knew any locations where i may be able to see some sarras? i will obviously go on a hunt for bogs myself, since i know there is pleanty just south in Palatka and Gainesville. Any info would help
    If you know of any bogs which contain Drosera or Pinguicula but NOT sarracenia, list those too please since id love to see some other CPs in situ
    Thanks for the help

    Same here. I'll probably be moving to Jacksonville for college this fall (or next Spring), and I would love to go see some carnivorous plants in their habitat there because of the variety.

    For good reason, many folks with this knowledge will be reluctant to post specific details. While they may (or may not) know you well enough to trust you with the info, there are plenty of poachers who monitor these (& other) public forums specifically for juicy tidbits like you are requesting.

    In the 80's I was fortunate to have a frequent CPN contributor take me to many sites in FL, AL, & MS. He also greatly enjoyed telling me a number of 'tales'. Some of these stories were about a famous nursery owner (& author) who would come down & literally dig up every plant in a stand - really amazing.
    All the best,

    i guess i will have to hunt for the bogs myself then RL, its not like im going to dig up sarras and drag them all back to Washington State, since im someone is into conservation like many of the others.

    Kris, why don't you try asking for a pm with any info? That way any locations won't be visible to the public.

    RL, are you saying this famous nursery owner & author (who owns a nursery in California I'm guessing) poached plants?

    I believe Ron is talking about Peter Paul, not Peter D'Amato in California.
