  1. Hi Christian, I don't doubt your label, but it does not say whether those filiformis are native or naturalised. There are herbarium sheets dated 1928 stating D.filiformis was introduced to Prince George’s Co., MD. So some introductions are old, some were gone some time later again, others may still exist. I know Phil S. introduced D.filiformis to Caroline Co., VA around 1982. Did you get your plants earlier than that? Eric
  2. Hi Christian, I could be wrong and there is always that "bird migration argument" that is used to connect the disjunct populations and could also be used to explain temporary populations in between. But presently I'm pretty sure that there are no native populations of D.filformis in VA. Do you have any good reason to believe there are any? There are no historical records for D.filiformis in VA, but many cases of deliberate introductions of non-native CPs in that state. It is known that D.filiformis was naturalised in Prince George’s Co., MD already before 1947. Another population was fou
  3. Hi Martin, those D.filformis in VA are not native but naturalised. I'm not sure where they originally came from. There are also naturalised populations in WV, OH, PA, MD, CA and other states. Most of them originate from the NJ pine barrens, but who knows for sure. Some were planted illegally so there are no records, some were planted on private property. So you would have to ask the owners. Eric
  4. None. It's an Australian triggerplant: Stylidium debile.
  5. Hi, "Error" was grown from 'Eden Black' selfed seed by Kai Becker in 2011. It is an odd, slow growing plant without pitchers, so some don't think it would be a good cultivar. This is the inofficial description: https://translate.google.de/translate?hl=&sl=de&tl=en&u=forum.carnivoren.org%2Fforums%2Ftopic%2F43234-cephalotus-follicularis-error%2F There are probably more plants with inofficial names or codes than registered cultivars in cultivation. Ideally, a special plant that is grown by many growers and that clearly differs from other plants should be described as
  6. Hi DP_FFM, thank you for your understanding and for respecting nature and the law! There's always a lot of pressure on nature around big cities. That's why excessive collection of mushrooms, wood, flowers etc. is more of a problem here than elsewhere. Even though most people are reasonable, a small number of people can do a lot of damage to the forest. All the trash is one of the symptoms. Frankfurt citicens have an intimate relation to their forest. At least it the only city I know of that used to have a holyday (Wäldchestag) dedicated to it. You wouldn't get a permit to collec
  7. Hi, according to German law (BNatSchG) all Sphagnum species are especially protected. They must not be taken from the wild. Not because they are all rare (some are), but to prevent commercial collection and to protect the habitat. So you do need a permit! Grow your own Sphagnum if you want to save money. Eric
