    Thanks guys!!!

    Here's a photo of the plant, incl. flowers.
    It's taken in april 2004, when I had this plant just a few days...
    The pitchers were green...I think it didn't get enough sunlight...but it's better now!!!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Still sure that it's a gulfensis?

    Cheers,

    Looks like pure gulfensis to my untrained eye.

    I don't mean to break up a great party-
    This was mentioned, "Yellow River plants got distributed before the stands were destroyed"

    What happened in Florida this time?

    Laura, the Yellow River gulfensis stands were huge! They lived along a main power company cut, and were doing just fine, creating many leaf and color forms, and a beautiful place to spend a day observing plants in the wild. Once maintained by "Bush Hogs" for cutting down brush in the power company right of way. Some genius decided that herbicides were cheaper, and killed everybody with one pass. Luckily, seeds were kept from this site, and seed and plants have been distributed. One of the NASC's projects, will be to restore this site with seed and plants originally from this area. Any other questions, Laura??

    Has any litigation been entered into on behalf of the public interest? What you described is a public right-of-way regardless of whether the power company was granted access to same or not. It is also sounding to me as if this may have been a wetlands area. Jurisdiction of those would generally fall first and foremost with the Army Corp of Engineers. Did anyone contact them? To the best of my knowledge, applicators are supposed to be licensed and I would be of the opinion that overspray to this magnitude should constitute the revocation of that operator's license at the very least. They are supposed to take into consideration drift, leaching, runoff, and spills. What did he do... use an extended range flat-fan nozzel and spray away with glee??? What I would like to know is who authorized the use of chemicals in that area anyway? Chemicals are engineered to kill. This sort of disgusts me and is right up there with all of the toxic green perfectly manicured lawns that we Americans have bought into. I will say no more lest I get a headache for the entire day.
