    I've only seen 1 white one about 15 years ago. I've been back to the site dozens of times and never saw another one. There's another site down the street from me, (only about 3 miles from downtown Boston) with thousands of typical pink ones. Last year I found a single cluster with over 20 flowers. I'll take some pics this spring when they're in bloom.

    I'll try and get some pics this spring/summer as well. I know of 2 large patches that come up every year. I live in an area that was obliterated by coal mining, so the soil is all nutrient poor and acidic. I keep searching for CP's but have yet to find any at all. I'd like to find some sundews at least. I found these slipper orchids years ago, before I even knew what they were.

    If your looking for c.p.'s in your area, check the swampy edges of ponds and beaver dams. You should find some D.rotundifolia or intermedia at least.

    Yeah, I'm going to go exploring hardcore this summer. Thought for sure I found an area I'd find some dews last summer, but no deal. I'm in Schuylkill county PA, which is where your best Anthracite coal comes from, and I'm starting to think it was just to hard on the area.

    It probably ways pretty hard on the area. Look for beaver ponds though. They tend to inadvertently create bog habitats on their margins. Where there's sun and sphagnum, there's probably c.p.'s. Utricularia love beaver ponds as well.
