    Sweet. If you need a home for some of the plants I would be glad to help out with some. I hate to see any plant get destroyed for a housing developement. The sad thing is that this type of stuff happens all the time, and none are the wiser. It is really sad, but such is life.

    Excellent Sir, I love to see that, a bulldozer guy with a kind heart! Continue to save them, they are very nice specimens. Good job, and bravo for getting permission.

    Well, don't keep them inside, but otherwise things sound good. They need lots and lots of sun, so find them a bright spot on the porch. You really should get in touch with people on the conservation forum, as I doubt that just you and your friend at the construction site will have the resources to save all the Sarrs there (but please do try!) If you can pot them up in those buckets you're talking about, that would be great. A five gallon bucket would make an excellent home for a mature pitcher plant. And remember, use clean water! Rainwater or store bought, distilled/reverse osmosis/deionized water.
    If you have the time, you should poke around that site and see if you can't find some Drosera filiformis or Pinguicula ionatha, planifolia, primuliflora or pumila. I think there are some Utricularia in the same range as well but the species escape me at the moment.
    Best luck,

    There are a few things that don't add up here. First of all, I'm a construction worker myself, of all the guys I every worked with, I doubt even one of them would gather all the plants up for you and put them in a bucket. They may do it if you paid them. Almost every construction site I work at has signs that prohibit unauthrorized personal from entering. The insurance companies requrie it.
    It sure is funny that there was never a mention of a construction site until people started telling you what they thought of poaching. If all you said is true, what you did is still illegal. The bulldoze operator is not the land owner.
    I was talking to Andrew about this and he brought up a very good point. "that plant pictured does not look like it has been dozed. I would LOVE to see someone doze one of these plants out of the ground and it look like that in the end..."

    I'm truly sorry but for somereason I just don't believe your story.

    There are a few things that don't add up here.

    - I'll get to this later

    First of all, I'm a construction worker myself, of all the guys I every worked with, I doubt even one of them would gather all the plants up for you and put them in a bucket.

    - I can see that they(or you) wouldn't gather all of them for someone. But I find it hard to believe that you or most other people wouldn't set a few better looking plants/rocks what ever they are looking for off to the side for them... If not I'm glad I don't have to work with the same people you do...

    They may do it if you paid them.

    - I agree you would get better results this way.

    Almost every construction site I work at has signs that prohibit unauthrorized personal from entering. The insurance companies requrie it.

    - Might be location specific. I work in large subdivision contruction sites, and there was walking trails that the construction equipment used to get around the site, that people were still walking on and no one said anything to them. And there are definatly no signs posted any where.

    It sure is funny that there was never a mention of a construction site until people started telling you what they thought of poaching.

    - Here is where things started to get a bit off.

    If all you said is true, what you did is still illegal. The bulldoze operator is not the land owner.

    - 100% True

    I was talking to Andrew about this and he brought up a very good point. "that plant pictured does not look like it has been dozed. I would LOVE to see someone doze one of these plants out of the ground and it look like that in the end..."

    - Front end loaders or high hoes could easily pull a chunk of earth up with that plant intact.

    I'm truly sorry but for somereason I just don't believe your story.

    - Again I agree here, but just because of how the story came out.

    Ozzy the moderator is quick to call some one a liar. The site is at Eagle Point in Clay county off Brannnon Field rd. As for my friend being on the site, I think a doser operator is allowed to be there. As for your bad attitudde, I live at 4534 Magnolia st in Middleburg Fl. That is also in Clay county just south of Jacksonville Fl. Why don't you just go ahead and report me. I'm sure you'll say that is a lie also. Anyone with any brains would check the domain register where I'm storing my pics. This can be done at http://betterwhois.com. Try www.millerautorepair.com. Let me know if there any thing else I can do for you Ozzy the moderator, Roy J. Miller III

    Ask me nicely and you might even get my phone #.
    I'm still living off the corpse of the old world.
