The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Western Australia in 2007

Return to the Trip Overview

Interestingly, one part of the cliff-side seemed to be the local Cephalotus nursery. Seedling plants were common. Also, sundews were more densely represented too. If you were unable to spot the Drosera pulchella in the previous couple of slides, you certainly can see them here.

Here is another view of the same plants.

My guess is that this is a site where, some seasons earlier, a small slippage of soil into the ocean occurred, and these little Cephalotus seedlings are colonizing the available habitat. But what do I know?
