    The Pinguicula thought so too.









    Chocolate lilies





    The Sun was leaving us and we had a very arduous climb to make it back to the road.



    Pollinators.



    That's all for now.

    Thanks Quinn.

    Halt- It sounds like you went on a cruise? If so, it would have been a little more tricky to find the time to find plants, but really, there are at least sundews you could have found in all those places. Very nearby those places, too.

    Amazing photos! The D. anglica looks amazing!
    Can you collect any one the sphagnum? I absolutely love the way these two look.

    and the one on the terraces in your first post. I'd love to get some.

    Thank you guys!

    In regards to the sphagnum:

    The red sphagnum I have collected and used for my Nepenthes. The thing is, that since it originates from here, it really will only be that great red dense moss if it is grown as if it were growing in Alaska year round. That would mean, keeping the moss at about 50 degrees or less most of spring, most of fall, most of Summer, and then below freezing all Winter.

    So it's temperate moss, and it etiolates quickly in low-light and becomes green. It sure looks nice for a while though.

    The moss on the terraces is really awesome I love that stuff. I had never seen pure grey moss before and it certainly intrigued me. However, since that is an alpine moss, my guess is that it would grow even less well then the red sphagnum, seeing as it is below ice and snow pack 7 months of the year.

    I did! but then after we went around for about 3 days from anchorage -> denali in our own car... When we were driving i kept imagining that every pond was a home to some sundews.
