Thank you!

KarenL's fun fact is not accurate.

It was originally assumed that the pitcher plants fed on insects and larger but it has been discovered that insects only get trapped by accident. The pitcher plants are actually toilets. Different species host different mammals and extract the nutrients from their feces. I learned this from a recent documentary where David Attenborough talked about his adventures and revealed this truth.

Very cool. I bet that area will look super-lush when all the leaves are fully developed. I also added a picture to mine showing the flowers in full bloom. They are the least impressive flowers I have ever seen but no one ever sees them that closely anyway other than the insects that pollinate them. ;)

These grow wild here where I live and the animals are browsing the vegetation right now (yuck). I just uploaded a picture of one of this season's first blooms. Very excited! I did not know they grew in the UK but should have guessed. The environments are similar.

Because it is the strangest looking stuff I have ever seen and the tree stump is so tall that it obviously befell a disaster of some kind and this stuff is also growing on a living tree right next to the stump but not growing anywhere else in the entire park. My imagination leads me to think it could have killed the tree. Is it a fungus or is it a parasite?
