    Chunnenuggee, Good job. I believe it's people like you that hold the key to cp's survival. Organizations like The Nature Conservancy and Meadowview are doing alot for saving cp sites. Organizations like that and individuals buying and preserving land and cp's is the only way that I can see that will stop development. I think The Nature Conservancy will even come to your land and burn and manage it. I don't know if they will be interested in your site since it's not a natural bog, but you may want to look into it. Keep up the good work.

    I think you'll have a cool website when you get it finished.

    Nice place you have there too.

    Welcome to the forums! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img]
    Just a suggestion, make a list of all of the cps you have in your bog, I'm very curious to see what you have! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    do you have any sarracenia rubra (or any endangered species) in your bog?

    Thanks for the welcome.

    I have Sarracenia:

    Leucophylla, (Typical and Tarnok) Tarnok is really a very nice variety! Tall pitchers with bright red coloration, neat pom pom type blooms > one of my favorites.
    Purpurea, Flava (Rugelli, Ornata, Coppertop and a couple Red Tubes)

    Rubra spp. wherry, this is the only variety of Rubra I have.

    Alatas and Minor, ( I like Minor alot&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    and Psittacina's

    No endangered species in my bog.

    I also have Drosera filiformas ssp. tracyi
    and of course capillaris.

    I planted 3 Venus flytraps last year and two
    are alive and are beginning to flower this year.

    I've also added about 5 pine lillys and want to add more


    Hat Pins (Eriocaulon compressum), have come up naturally, they really set off a bog, another neat flower.

    I'd love to add some Pinguicula lutea and primulifora..
    I'm also looking for other native bog plants such as "Grass Pink Orchids, "Rose Bug Orchids" and other flowers.

    My bog is about 130' long by about 60' wide more or less. Like I said it's a natural Sandhill Seep Bog. Before I purchased the property the area of the bog was completly grown over with brush and trees. Did any CP's exists then?? I don't know, as I had the bog and other parts of the property cleared off and a small pond built on part of the property. I did not know much about Sarracenia back then. It just so happens that the bog was "perfect" for native carnivourous plants. It stays wet about nine months out of the year. The soil is mucky grey sand and very acidic. It's located in South Alabama... Hey, it's turned out good so far!

    I'm now doing a yearly burn in late February or early March, depending on weather conditions and alike. I'm a member of our local Volunteer Fire Department so I have access to, and help with burning. I'm going to have to do a growing season burn on of these years to help really cut back alot of weeds and other grasses. With out fire competition is fierce in a native bog.

    I've also planted about 10 acres of Longleaf Pine. Which is a native tree and naturally grows around bog invironments and also requires fire. A native cactus "Prickly Pear" also grows on the sand hills around here, it blooms in Late May to June I'll post few pics.

    I travel alot and get to see LOTS of interesting stuff.
    South Alabama is my home and I know it well!

    I have a primuliflora plantlet on the mother prim... I'll contact you when it gets bigger. (That is, if you want it on your bog!

    Hey welcome to the forums [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    I think youll love it here there is a great bunch of people who share a huge common interest in these plants.

    Since you are working on your bog and it sounds like you'd like a variety of plants come on over to the trading post section. There is always something new to be gotten there. Im not sure if you are into trades or more to the point taking plants out of your bog and trading for different species, but if you are interested in gathering more thats a good place to start. Nice pics by the way [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I cant wait to see more!



    I am the weirdo who sits next to you on the bus!

    Chunnenuggee, I'll be getting some very vigorous mature vft's in a couple of weeks. If you're interested I'll send them to you when I get them. Since you only have two I think it wouldn't hurt to add a few more genes to your vft gene pool. I also have a few other specices coming. Of course nothing is free, In return you'll have to show me your bog next time I'm in AL.
    Again good job.
    Mark

    Hey maybe they'll spread all over AL and become an invasive species, wouldn't that be great.
