Hello everyone. I'm heading out later tonight to go to Blackwater River State Park. I was wondering if anyone has been there and knows where to locate the flava atropurpureas. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Post pics of any CPs I find while i'm down there.

I was actually planning on bringing back a couple hundred:crazy:. Thanks for the tip maiden:-)).

Hopefully, I can find some CPs and this weather hasnt delayed their growth. I'd really love to see a field of flava flowers.

I dont know you my friend. Dunno how you think in your head. Many ppl i know collect plants from the wild and this upset me a lot.

So, no problem for the tip, was my pleasure;)

There's a slight chance that flowers may be up.
Flowers and pitchers are up:). Didnt find the flavas but found some leucos, some very pretty red plants too, and other CPs. I havent given up on the flavas though. Going to go back and look more before I leave FLA.

I'm back. Went to a few different spots and found some really nice plants. Lil early in the season for good pitcher growth but saw a few pitchers and lots of flowers. Found leucos, flavas, dews, utrics and sphagnum. Didnt find the atropurpureas, which was the main plant I wanted to see, but still took close to 100 pics of what I did find. Post some in the next couple of days.

Very cool to see them in their natural habitat and to see they grow in soil nothing like the consistency of the 50/50 peat/sand mix I use. Wish my children wouldve went on the trails with me, I think they wouldve liked it, but they had no interests in hiking around looking for plants with their weirdo father just going to the beach lol.
