    it is SO unlikely that Lewis & clark would be carrying Sarracenia seeds to Washington state, that its probably statistically zero percent.

    I have heard of L&C collecting unusual plants and sending them back east,
    but I have never heard of them carrying any plants or seeds westward..
    and even if they did, why would they possibly choose something as obscure as sarracenia seeds?? there are about a million more likely plants they would choose first..if they even did it at all..which they probably didnt.

    so yeah..im saying zero percent chance..

    You sure are the most close minded person on this forum i believe. WHY is it impossible for purpurea to be native here? things like this happen all the time with plants being native to an area but not being native to any area around it, but rather a fair distance from it....L&C might not have brought the seeds here, but who says a bird or something did not dispose of the seeds here hundreds of years ago? IMO if there is no human intervention, its natural. So if its animal related, i would still say native rather than introduced. pupurea extends very far into canada, it could easily withstand washington climate, and thrive even. And with our sphagnum bogs, who knows?

    All i know is, and i will not continue this argument after i state this, but every time i see one of your posts, and as ive said before, its generally something negative or rude or meant to shoot down the other person into the dust.....i get a little tired of it personally, atleast its not as bad as rainforests BE rants....

    Im out, better things to do....

    Good luck with your project Halt.

    It has nothing to do with being close minded..
    its simply not a matter of opinion..

    I think Sarracenia are not native to Washington state for the same reason I think water is wet and the sun is hot..
    its just a known fact..

    and you have no reason to be offended by facts..
    if you are, maybe you need to lighten up a bit..
    just a thought..

    here is my big offensive post:

    im not offended, but i dont agree that you should tell people that they are point blank flat out wrong. i think its quite rude to be honest, i believe the simple, that is incorrect based on facts or something similar is what really should have been said

    ...Again, the way you respond is rude, with the "blahblahblah" smiley and the slapping smiley...Plus, that's a poor example as the statement is just completely illogical compared to others that are made and that you contradict... > >
