Generally sundew seeds can last several years if stored in a refrigerator, although I would not recommend waiting so long before sowing. Personally I haven't grown D. sp. “Lantau Island Hybrid" from seed but it doesn't appear to need any special germination requirements other than keeping the...
I have 4 small portions of Drosera sp. “Lantau Island Hybrid," seeds up for grabs. USA only please. The winners will be selected on Sunday, 10/25/15 and will need to send a SASE. To enter, start the list as usual...
Apparently the name for the hybrid was changed because the example for D. x beleziana was not actually a hybrid between D. rotundifolia x intermedia but actually just D. rotundifolia.
Here are some pictures I took on a recent visit to West Lake Nature Preserve and Bishop's Bog Preserve in Portage, Michigan. I hope you all enjoy them.

Marston Dragon flower stalk cuttings
1. Zath - Favorite is probably U. calycifida, because it includes the Lovecraftian cultivars, whose mythos I am a huge fan of. Learning about them from B. Rice's articles helped stoke the fires of my CP obsession in the first place.
2. SFLguy - Utricularia Delphinioides - although usually...
I would like to see some carnivorous plants native to the Great Lakes region I have not come across yet such as D. linearis, D. anglica, U. minor, U. purpurea, U.resupinata. I would especially like to see S. purpurea subsp. purpurea f. heterophylla
That's alright, I did aid a little in setting it off track but no worries. I have spoken with some of the rangers before about various plants at the Dunes and they often talk about the secrecy of their locations. Some of them only know of the possible existence of some plants through rumors...
I see. Yeah, I tend to see them in the forested in areas at the park. In the parking lot at the Nature Center there must be at least a dozen of them growing there. I have even seen one growing out from underneath a concrete parking bumper there. Rarely do I ever see native orchids at the Dunes...
I am pretty sure it is a Pedicularis lanceolata. It's actually a parasitic plant which is quite interesting. Technically it's hemiparasite so it gets some of its water and nutrients from the host plant but also uses photosynthesis to an extent.
I'm not from the region but I might be able to help. I use the PLANTS Database for finding possible sites where CPs could be located. Also a simple google search can be incredibly helpful. By searching for things like "bogs in Wisconsin," "Drosera Wisconsin," "Sarracenia Wisconsin," etc. you...
