    I will be taking a much needed vacation next week to the Outer Banks. Does anyone know of some good cp sites to visit?

    Either post here or PM me. Thanks in advance.

    I'm keeping my eye on Frances. Hopefully it won't have too big of an impact that far North.

    I'm in NC! and I've been to the outter banks almost every year.
    anyway... it's not really on the outter banks but about this time of year (actually earlier) I went to carolina beach state park and there I saw some mystery sundews (two individuals of one species) and a BUNCH of wild VFT's (FLOWERING!)
    It was HORRIBLY HORRIBLY HORRIBLY hard keeping my hands to myself but I knew it would be horribly horribly horribly wrong (not to mention the fines) to take anything... so I WAS able to keep my hands to myself :P
    there's supposed to be more CP's but we got lost (really confusing trails) so we only got to see those two species.
    and darn it was HOT!!!! and dry too!!! I didn't see a single strand of sphagnum/peat and they were growing right on the sand! VERY strange!

    I'm about to send you a pm Glenn.
    Hurricane Frances can do alot of damage that far north. So keep your eye on it.

    One was capilaris and the other was probably intermedia.

    Most cp's in NC grow in sand and not spag. moss.

    aha! it seems the drosera were D. intermedia!
    what's really funny is that I've seen sphag. moss, all moist and nice, in a bunch of places and not a single carnivorous plant in sight. Then I go to the costal area with burning sand and no water and it's full of flowering venus fly traps! ... what a wicked world we live in [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
