Gauthier-you're welcome!

fischermans: some of the largest populations are found on the east side (aka "dark side") of the mountain. However, the plants still receive full sun, but due to their location and constant bathing in spring water, the substrate remains cool.

I've also seen them on the west side of the mountain (inland population), where they bake in full sun all year round. There seems to be a higher mortality rate at these locations, and there's also a lot of pitchers that get sunburn. It seems a few of the larger plants perish, but since they have stolons, the population remains stable overall. Water temperatures at this site were surprisingly warm (not hot), but it's constantly moving.

What elevation is the alpine farms found at? I'm not sure, I think it's around 900m, but will have to double check.
