    Thanks for the pics. I love seeing CPs in the wild. The S. flava look amazing.

    Thanks! The one downside to growing flava in this way is that it does not look too good by the late summer. Stresses from the environment cause it to produce phyllodia and most of the traps die back. I have divisions of the same plant growing in pots that retain thier traps (although much smaller) when grown in more stable conditions. Its not that the wild conditions are unhealthy; the minors look fine and by september the leucos produce traps that rival flava's (around 32 inches tall so far). I will try to keep the photos coming to show how the fen progresses throughout the course of a year. In the end it is worth keeping the flava where it is. The plant may not be the showiest in late summer, but it has a huge clump and the traps are large and extremely fragrant.

    Awesome! Please do keep us updated, and I would like to see how the plants multiply around. How long since you introduced the flava and others?

    I think I moved the flava to it's current location 3 years ago. The leucophylla and unknow hybrid (minor x rubra)? were added 2 years ago. The rest were just recently added this spring. I keep the introduced plants close to the boardwalk so the native plants have the rest of the area to grow. I'm still debating on whether I should remove the introduced plants after my summer trip to keep the area more natural. I might try to convert another wet area into a bog just for cultivated carnivores.

    I got back from Chicago this summer, and here's what I found in the bog. The plants grew very well with all the rain and mild weather.

    Thanks! They all grow so fast. I have more flava rhizomes than I know what to do with!
