    Bug- we have a house in Towns county, and i thought i knew where a stand in Towns county was, but when i got there there was nothing. then 5 miles into NC, i found a nursery and asked if they knew where they were at. they told us, with hesitation, and then i found these! It's pretty awesome huh? Just by driving down the road you'd never know, because they are right next to a campground!

    I don't know how many stands are in towns county, or where they are, but i do know about this one! every couple of years they torch the whole bog to kill the brush. last spring you could easily see yellow Utricularia flowers and some sort of beat-red drosera growing in depressions, but i couldn't find them this year.



    The man who looks after the property lives next to it. He's paid by the Nature conservancy to test water samples and stuff. He said he didn't realize what a big deal they were untill FBI agents showed up and installed cameras and asked him to report anyone who went into the bog. The FBI agents said that people had been poaching them.

    Would it be a good idea to stop back in December, and make sure the seeds in the capsules all disperse?

    When you are in those bogs, Scott, you touch NOTHING!!!! Any excuse to give you trouble, so DO NOT EVEN TOUCH'EM!!!!! Remember, The FBI is watching! Rather than share to alleviate any poaching, as usual, they try to lock it down tighter, and hatch'em out like chicks! This causes those with a sense of fairness to holler, "NOT FAIR!!!" But, since they don't understand the best way to protect something is to make sure they are available in the "market place" for distribution, the same old stuff is what you get. They all but build a fence around them. Look, don't touch. If all had the plants, these areas could then be opened up to interested parties for field trips to see them outside of a collection in their Natural Home. AND, they could even charge a little fee, and further make money to help the site. But, I make too much sense, so I better go play with blocks or something.

    When you go back to disperse the seeds, can you pull out one of the red ones and ship it to me? Just act nonchalant when the camera's pointing at you and disguise yourself by wearing a turban.
