Now these aren't exactly in a bog but the plants grow where it's wet/ damp. Many see them as obnoxious weeds ( in Sarracenia pots) but I find them interesting. I identified three thalloid species in a very short stretch of the River Meden today.
I returned to Pleasley Vale this morning and continued a little way further down stream until the path veered away from the river. I found a further three thalloid species but unfortunately I was unable to photograph them in situ as my position in each case was a little precarious. I retained some small samples by reaching down around corners and will grow them on to aid and/or confirm ID. One I was happy to label up as Conocephalum salebrosum which I found in a dry ditch next to an old stone wall. The other two are as yet unidentified although I suspect one is a Pellia, probably P. epiphylla which will need to be confirmed. Pellia can be a little difficult to get to species level. These add to Marchantia polymorpha, Conocephalum conicum and Lunularia cruciata from the visit in the video.
stu: Hi Mike: I’m pleased to report that the S. rubra wherryi Chatom Giant you sent has arrived in great shape as did the bonus plant from NC. Both are now back under southern skies and are feeling warm, humid, and at home again. Thanks!

sanguinearocks101: What are good plants to make hybrids with S. luecophylla with? Im looking for dark colors.

adaetz100: Sarracenia purpurea tends to add a lot of red/purple to its offspring, but there are some lovely dark red flava x leucophylla crosses too. Look up 'Royal Ruby' if you're not familiar with it already--it's a natural flava x leuco hybrid
