    growing up in southern California , i never saw a single cp in the wild , but if i could get an address to anywhere in the US that has carnivorous plants , i would be very thankful . So in the future when i have enough money for a airplane ticket , ican see the cp's in the wild . [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Due to the high occurance of poaching in the wild, very few people give out the locations of CPs. Your best bet in the US would be the South but I can't get more specific than that as I don't know any locations.

    Tuyen,

    I lived in Humboldt County in northern california for 5 years. It's just south of Oregon, but in California. Prime Darlingtonia country. It's probably the closest to where we live.

    There IS no address - you would have to go at least half an hour off the most remote trails, which is very destructive to the habitat. I believe I saw some once on an official class mycology field trip, but we had to stay on the game trail.

    I hope you have a lot of money for a plane ticket (I went there this weekend). You have to fly to SFO ($100-$200) and there are approximately 3 flights per day to the Arcata area ($150-$400). You can also drive there, but it's approx. 700 miles to Arcata/Eureka, then you will have to drive north into the forests between Trinidad and Oregon itself - another 30-60 miles.

    So, please enjoy the plants you have at home, most of the habitats that CPs grow in would be destroyed or poached if anyone knew where they were.

    There is a section of the Pacific Crest Trail in Northern California, beyond Castle Crags State Park near White Ridge, Darlingtonia grows amongst trailside springs... no off trail destruction since they are right there next to the trail.

    here's a picture... (scanned, not the greatest quality, sorry)

    I remember seeing little red pitcher plants up in the UP in Michigan. I remember seeing lots them as I was duck hunting. They were on a bog near muniscong bay. If I recall they were bright red and about 4 inchs tall and believe the were part of the Sarracenia species.
