The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Splinter Hill Bog, Alabama, 2010

Return to the Trip Overview

Interesting mouth
What an interesting form to this plant! The plants have a suspicious red glow to the tubes, but also the pitcher mouths are all canted downwards. How very odd! Perhaps there is some hybrid backcrossing going on? Indeed, when Brian introduced me to this part of Splinter Hill, he called it the land of mixed-up backcrosses.

Fresh from his siesta, Brian appeared, armed with his video camera. I can't tell you how much I envy his ability to visit these plants so much more easily than I can! He's not exactly a local, but he certainly lives a lot closer to Splinter Hill than I do!
