    Drosophyllum site, Portugal

    Dear All,

    Its a pleasure to share these photos with you, taken in july, 2009.









    This site can be found in the southern part of Portugal (Algarve). If one of you is going there, i can give the exact locality for you to observ them in nature. Its pretty sure that there are other sites more to the north, but i didnt have the chance to find them yet. I hope in this year i will be more lucky

    Wow, nice find! Amazing to have been able to visit there Was that 2 plants side by side, or one plant with 2 growth points?
    Thanks for sharing!

    It was one with 2 growth points, but near to them i counted more than 10 individuals, but the dry season made its effect as you can see...

    How close would you say you seen them growing next to each other? Some believe that they restrict each others growth... Did you notice onces close to one another looked any worse than one that was off by itself?

    As far as i know their populations are very isolated, like this (it was only a 20m circle), and further there was no more plants.
    Sorry, but what would you like to express with your 2nd question, its not fully clear to me

    Well, were there any plants that were growing very close to each other (within 15-30cm)? If not, what would you say the closest you saw was? and if so, did those plants look any worse than plants that were not near others?

    ok, i finally got your idea I guess you are asking this, because their roots are educting a kind of chemical substance, which is making the other plants disturbed in growing.

    Well, i didnt experience any difference between them, but all of them seemed a bit less in height which i had imagined before. Maybe its because they didnt get enough direct sunlight, or the media was not as well componated as it should be , or simply they could not catch sufficent insects.
    Normally they are 30-50 cm tall, arent they?

    Yes, that is what I was asking. The plants in your pictures do look rather small, but hey- whatever they went through they survived to flower at least. thanks for the info, and again for the pics!
    Any plans to make it back out there?
