  1. Last year I took a trip to the northern portion of Michigan and the southern portion of Upper Peninsula. On the trip I encountered various carnivorous plants and orchids. Emmet County (Day 1): The first site was quite unique compared to similar sites I have been to. All of these plants survived in a narrow beach swale only a couple yards to a couple feet from the shores of Lake Michigan. In comparison, swales I have been to in the past were several hundreds of feet away from the shores of Lake Michigan and sheltered by tall sand dunes. Small colonies of Utricularia cornuta were growing ter
  2. Hello Alexander, The Utricularia in the photo is Utricularia geminiscapa, which is quite rare in this area and endangered in my state. As for carnivorous plants, there are not very many places where you can find Drosera or Sarracenia. There is though, quite an abundance of Utricularia. Thank you for sharing by the way! That must be quite interesting having an abundance of D. rotundifolia population so close to you. To my knowledge, there are only two places where one can find D. rotundifolia, D. intermedia or S. purpurea near me (they seem to almost always appear together), one be
  3. I believe you're referring to the gray object in the corner? It's part of the walkway in the bog to make access easier. The Sphagnum almost absorbs the path in certain sections.
  4. 100%, Drosera anglica is not endemic to any part of Indiana, they are in states farther north. I apologize for the misleading camera angle.
  5. Those are actually Drosera intermedia. The bog contains only two species: Drosera intermedia and Drosera rotundifolia, unfortunately no Drosera anglica.
  6. I see, that would explain why the plants look so different. I guess my original thought on the label being wrong would be because this photo of Pinguicula rotundiflora made by Joseph Clemens, although the dates do differ by six years. This was a picture was also after four years of dry conditions as well. I do apologize for making that assumption.
  7. Oh no, I'm sorry if I did not make it quite clear. I don't own the plant but I wish I did!
  8. Some time ago I found this photo of a Ping, the name given must certainly be wrong. Any thoughts on what it could be?
  9. I had received the seeds in 2010 and neglected to plant them, yet the seeds had little trouble germinating.
  10. Here are a few pictures I took from my visit to Pinhook Bog.
