The map is a bit vague. For example, even though 'sumatra' is pinned, the location of the Sarracenias is more than 1 mile away from the exact location.

ah, ok, thanks Mike, that's what I wanted to know... when I saw the pinned spots I thought those were actually the gps spots... pheeeew....

I am just back from 6 weeks travelling in the S.E. US. Bassically for seeing CP, s in the wild. I had never been there before and it was an old drwam of me to see them one time in habitat.

There are some good naturereserves where you get trails from where you can see carnivorous plants. The best ones are Spring Splinter Hill bog preserve in Alabama west of Perdido. And close by a big population of S. leucophylla in the For Ever Wild Land preserve. But when I did visit that area last April I saw lots of frostdamage due to a coldsnap last March. They had also a much colder spring there then normally. For Sarracenia flava near Sumatra you can see good big ones. And near Milton there is a bike trail from wich you can see plenty Sarracenia leucophylla. And the Blackwater State Forest has also nice Sarracenias. And Santa Rosa county has very good Sarracenia habitat.

Okefenokee is a must, near Norfolk. Both the big and small Sarracenia minor can be seen there. And you can ask the rangers. Or better go on an excurssion with them. I had one in Missisipi. The Green Swamp is also a must if you want to see nice Sarracenia and Dionaea. But also keep an eye for the traces of poachers! And if you see one report it to the Nature Conservancy. Well I have found those areas by looking at the plantlist of Mike King. Well I hope people are not going to make abuse of this information!

If you want plants get them from bonefide nurseries!

Along the interstate 10 you also can see Sarracenias. Well if they have not mowed them down...

My very first flowering Sarracenia alata I saw from that road last April.

I can mail you a map with exact locations if you want. If you send an e-mail I will mail it to you.

Nothing better then seeing them in the wild! And now the pitchers are still nice!

Regards,

Alexander

I admire your enthusiasm and passion for these wonderful plants. I'd love to travel to the US to see them. I've very little interest in seeing Nepenthes in the wild but other plants I'd gladly see.

Well there are some beautifull Nepenthes in the wild. And even if they are not you cup of tea they often grow in spectaculair areas.

Well of the touristic stuff for sure!
