    Pics of Sarrs in Natural Habitat!

    I had some free time today and decided to post some pics of Sarracenia in their natural habitatsince many of you might not have had the chance to see them in this setting. These pics are from our trip this year to Florida and Alabama. We go at least once a year to see them and see how things are changing.


    Pinguicula Planifolia and S. Psittacina


    S. Flava


    S. Flava


    S. Flava var. Ornata


    S. Moorei


    Field of Flavas


    Another Field of Flavas


    Clump of Flavas


    Nice S. Leuco
    I don't want EVERY Sarracenia, just everyone that I see!!

    That's pretty cool. Looks like the flavas are thriving out there.

    And what observations do you have about how things are changing? Do you see an increase, decrease, or maintaining the status quo generally about the numbers of sarrs in the area? You've got some great pictures there. Although S. flava isn't my favorite Sarracenia I certainly love pictures of fields and clumps of them. Thanks for sharing.

    Well, as you probably know, this was an unusually dry year in the entire southeast. This year it was drier than usual but the pitcher plants still looked good and that was a little surprising. I don't know if you have heard about the ****** Bayou site that Mike Howlett is working on. Me and Brooks Garcia went there (as I have in years past) and it was completely dozed. This place was about 5-10 acres and full of Flava Atropurpurea, Flava Typical, Flava Ornata, Psitts and Purps as well as Drosera. Very disappointing. Unbelievable actually. But for the most part, everything is pretty much staying the same for the 4 or 5 years that I have been going there. This is one thing that is happening more and more:



    I tried to get pitcher plants in the picture but didn't.
