A bit more focused information on where the funds of our T-Shirt project will go:
The GA DNR and ORLT (Oconee River Land Trust) have been working together recently to obtain a conservation easement to protect a 50 acre portion of the bogs and adjacent habitat. The conservation easement on the property which will legally and permanently prohibit development.Their purpose is to permanently limit development and disturbances on property to protect conservation values. The benefit of a CE is that it protects the land even if there is a change in ownership. The CE also includes annual monitoring by the ORLT to ensure the terms of the easement are being met and a management plan which allows for continued conservation work by DNR.
The lands that will be protected include 3 different species of Sarracenia (purpurea sp venosa, Flava, and Leucophylla), as well as 5 orchid species, and 3 other protected plant species.The adjacent longleaf uplands house some treasures as well, plant and animal. It is ranked as one of Georgia’s high priority sites for conservation, not only within the plant conservation community but within GA DNR as well.
Obtaining these acres would provide the basis for restoring additional bog habitat so their populations can expand.
The exact locations that will be saved are vague in most of the materials presented to me, but is kept carefully guarded to protect the private landowners, and to protect the plants from poaching. Only a close circle individuals know how to get to these sites, but we can rest assured that the ORLT and DNR will be using our money to the best of their ability to obtain these CE's.
I am linking to two PDFS that deal with the ORLT and obtaining these lands. The first is a WINTER 2015 update where on page 6 they reveal their project. The second is an overview with what they hope to acheive by getting these CEs.
summit: Hey guys, I'm about to sow some seeds and I was curious to know what everyone thinks 'too hot' for Sarracenia seeds would be? Having them in the dome bumps up the temps a bit.

DirtyDivisions: summit I’ve been fine at a constant 95° F under the dome. Once the tiny seedlings have two pitchers I remove the dome and temps go down.

summit: @dirtydivisions Thanks for that! I'm sitting around 87-88F with the dome fully sealed but I wasn't doing that and sacrificing humidity to keep it cooler but I'll go ahead and close it down now!

Skirt: Sarracenia can grow in Miami, right?

DirtyDivisions: Yep, Sarracenia will grow anywhere! In your toilet even...if have the proper amount of light etc...

mikee: I have just joined this forum so will make a few mistakes - So here goes I have recently started my collection and now have some 150 to 200 plants during my first year. I have some very nice flowers spikes and would like to propagate.

mikee: So I would like to know the different properties for colour - vigor - size etc I don't have the time due to my age so would not be able run over many years can someone help or guide me

mikee: Thanks you chofah, there is a great video from The Pitcher Project with Phil Faulisi this was what I was looking for. However it still appears to be wait and see what results come from the cross. Many thanks

Willy: It would be rather silly to expect totally predictable results from a cross. The individual plants grown from the seeds will vary, sometimes quite a bit, even with carefully protected hand pollination. If you open polinate, the variety may be even greater.

superstressed: Recently purchased a s. purpurea from Mike and I am so impressed with the quality of the plant that arrived. My Purpurea is now one of the larger plants in my collection! Mike also included an beautiful Flava var. for free. I will absolutely buy again.
