    Wild lutea x caerulea hybrids?

    Thanks for the feedback y'all. The reason that I ask is because here in Nassau County, Florida I have a field with a bunch of lutea and caerulea, but I noticed plants that had white flowers. At first, I wasn't sure what this was all about and suspected a possible hybrid, but I've since come to...

    Wild lutea x caerulea hybrids?

    I believe that I've read of this hybrid in captivity, but can it happen with wild plants?

    Drosera brevifolia availability?

    Thanks! I've got Pinguicula caerulea, three Sarracenia species and Utricularia subulata, too. :) If I ever move, I'm probably going to take that clump on the moss with me.

    Drosera brevifolia availability?

    It wouldn't surprise me if they do. Where I'm at, we normally have about a month of freezing temps at night in the winter, and it's not unusual to have the highs top out at only 45-50 or so during that same time. They're obviously thriving, and the plants are flowering right now. They'll drop...

    Drosera brevifolia availability?

    Fair enough. I'm sitting on ten acres where it's very common, and was willing to put some plants into circulation if I needed to to help the community. If it's not necessary though, I won't bother :).

    Drosera brevifolia availability?

    What is the availability of D. brevifolia in the hobby? I've looked for it, and haven't had much luck finding it. The only place I managed to find it was relatively expensive. Is this considered a rare species, or is it just not desired? I'm only asking out of sheer curiosity; I figured that...

    Sopchoppy FL and carnivorous plants?

    Hello all, I'm seriously considering moving over to the panhandle of Florida in the next couple of years, and there's a little town called Sopchoppy right in the Apalachicola National Forest. It has a population under 1000 and is only about a half hour from Tallahassee, but as mentioned, is...

    In-situ S. flava, minor, minor var. Okee and psittacina in Nassau County, FL

    They're all naturally occurring. I'm assuming the one plant is an Okee because it is much larger than the rest of the minors and it has significantly different pitcher morphology. I live only 20 miles from the Okefenokee; it was previously discussed here that it is possible/probable that there...

    In-situ S. flava, minor, minor var. Okee and psittacina in Nassau County, FL

    A few shots of a few of the plants that I found in a field that was mowed last fall. S. flava- S. minor var. minor- S. minor var. Okee- S. psittacina-

    Potting and growing questions when in native plant range

    Well, they went in the ground.

    Potting and growing questions when in native plant range

    I was under the impression that introducing nonnative plants was generally frowned upon, even if they are in a de-facto garden. There are six Sarracenia species in Florida, but only three where I live.

    Potting and growing questions when in native plant range

    Thanks for the replies. I'm going to take the stuff back to the hardware store and buy some larger stuff. I have a 140 gallon Rubbermaid that I'll use to hold water and I'll try to get something about 30" to plant then plants. How deep should I keep the water column as opposed to the pot...

    Potting and growing questions when in native plant range

    If 16" is top small, how big should I go? The ideal would be to have everything in one pot, though I realize that may be a logistical impossibility.

    Potting and growing questions when in native plant range

    Hello all I live in NE Florida where I have a bunch of native CPs already. I've collected some that are growing on my land as well as recently purchased a few Sarrs to round out my collection of native Florida species. I'm wanting to pot them up so I can have them in my back yard to enjoy...
