    You just have to know where to look to find them. Indicator species are key; Sphagnum moss being the biggest, sedges, orchids, Rhexia, Lycopodium, excessive amounts of pine trees, etc. There's just a certain look to pitcher plant bogs. Once you see it you can't forget it. If I ever make it up to Michigan and NJ I'll be sure to stop by and show you guys what I'm talking about. I've become a human metal detector for Sphagnum. Wild Sarracenia are.... I don't know how to describe it, but it's awe inspiring.

    Here's a distribution map for Michigan.

    And New Jersey

    It should be easy for both of you, they're all over the place. Well, I don't remember their status in NJ, but Michigan still has about 90% of the bogs intact.

    Keith, the maxima is a machine!!! It's putting on size fast, even if the pitchers take forever to inflate. The smilesii has taken well to Meadowview's greenhouse. I'll have to get photos of it next break.

    More updates.

    Sarracenia flava var. flava OP seeds germinating. These should be interesting.

    N. burkei is a champ! It should be opening its first normal pitcher this month if I'm lucky.

    Thanks! Glad you approve, Mike.

    S. leucophylla turned very red when it entered dormancy.

    As did purpurea.

    N. maxima "Lake Poso" and its newest pitcher.

    QB243539 by Wire Man, on Flickr

    Lots of potential with this one.

    QB243540 by Wire Man, on Flickr

    N. burkei. This actually just opened a few days ago!

    The next pitcher is looking a little devilish.

    D. roseanna is really filling in.

    And D. burmannii is getting a lot bigger.
