The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Western Australia in 2007

Return to the Trip Overview

Deeper green:
About 3 meters from the big cliff-wall colony of plants, the slope took a slightly less steep incline--It was perhaps only about a 70° pitch. This area was mostly bare mud, but there were a few clumps of plants like the one above. The pitchers are clearly not as red, yet they were on average about 20% larger. I wonder why? Notice also the relatively large number of noncarnivorous leaves on this plant. Were these plants exposed to slightly different soil or water characters?

P.S. I can see 1.5 tiny sundews in this photograph. Can you find them?
