    That is cool jim, something i always wanted to see, but i'm not sure you're going to get an enthusiastic response to news that you collected plants from the wild. That's generally frowned upon, with good reason. Did you identify the species?

    cool!
    be very careful what you take home. it's usually illegal to do it and there are hefty fines involved. look up if it's alright to do next time. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    oh, D. M., it's probably drosera rotundifolia, and you cant blame jim, he probably didn't know that you usually cant collect them

    I just want to give a word of warning jimflytrap, Taking the sundews is a crime called poaching. I don't know what the laws are where you live, normally the penalty is hugh fines and even jail time. Be more careful next time you see a plant in the wild that you want to take home.

    Yeah Spec, you're right. Ten years ago and i would have done the same. jim, it's to protect the wild populations. Even if it is legal in your case, it's just not very conservation minded. Perhaps for that little lake there's no problem, but imagine if a hundred or even a thousand people all visit that place each year and take some with them... well, you can see it adds up.

    Fortunately, sundews are very cheap and easy to come by from other growers, you can buy a packet of capensis or rotundifolia seeds and grow yourself a field of them in a couple months. So there's no need to collect them. That's good for the wild sundews, because there's little incentive to collect them.
