    Blind Bog, Vancouver Island, BC

    This was a new site for all of us yesterday. It was a nice bog but show clear signs of drought stress, which is typical for many bogs in the area. There is a constant discussion over vulgaris and macroceras and I will try to exclude any opinions on the topic and only stick to facts. Many...

    Obo Bog, Vancouver Island, B.C.

    This species is sporadic but widespread across B.C. This bog has a high concentration of them, sometime outnumbering Drosera rotundifolia in areas. A distinctly tall species that is easy to tell apart from all other species on Vancouver island.

    Obo Bog, Vancouver Island, B.C.

    A group of us got to explore some new higher elevation bogs and we lucked out with the holy grail of Drosera on the West Coast. This natural hybrid is rare on Vancouver Island as one of its parents, Drosera anglica, is very sporadic and difficult to find. This site just happened to have...

    Haliburton Forest Bog Trip

    This is an old trip from back in September 17th 2011, this is an interesting population as most of the plants aren't in the bog but along the lake shore. It requires a drive up to a remote lake, a 1-2km Canoe trip and a 3-4km hike to a different lake. Its not the most spectacular site but worth...

    Justin’s Pic of the Day

    I am lucky enough to work with Carnivorous Plants and have a large enough collection to see new stuff every day. I take this for granted some days and I tend to overthink some posts and only show off what I feel is “worthy” of a post, this means I don’t post what I see as average even though...

    Courting Frogs Nursery

    I just got back from a trip over in Washington visiting a couple Sarracenia growers and thought people would enjoy the photos. It was a pretty epic group of US growers and for those on Instagram you’ll probably recognize them all. I made this trip last year and did it in one day, living on...

    Silverhill Seeds Owners Rob and Rachel Saunders

    Extremely sad news out of South Africa. I appears as though Rod and Rachel Saunders of Silverhill Seeds have been kidnapped and possibly murdered. The amount of work they have done to spread seeds around to a vast array of plant groups can't be understated. From the carnivorous plant community...

    Ideas on the best way to move threads over

    Ok so I've had a thought on how to move over the threads that keeps all content. If we use our computers to screen shot the posts and then add them if will keep literally all the old info (who posted, their post count, every emoji etc) This works extremely well from my computer, its easy...
