The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Travels with Booger, 2006

Return to the Trip Overview

Forest pioneer:
As I hiked through the pines I started to see Sarracenia alata even though I was in surprisingly dense forest. I liked how this plant's petals were curled upwards, a feature commonly seen in this species. The flowers were of a yellowish cast. It was partly cloudy and a little windy, so it took about 25 minutes of patient sitting before the lighting and wind conspired to give me a nice image.

I gathered my gear, and continued on to the clearing I knew existed ahead.
