Dear members of the CPUK forum,

I was fortunate to recently spend a week studying Sarracenia in the wild in preparation for a new monograph on the family that I am preparing. The plants were looking stunning, so I thought I would share some of the images with you;

I love the bright white leuco, it's almost blindingly white, like neon-tubes!

I love these wild Sarracenia images...They're all very beautiful!....I noticed the soil looks very sandy. This is the reason I love seeing plants in the wild cause it gives a better guide as to how they grow, so I can better mimmick growing conditions in cultivation...Thanks for sharing...
