    The Tropical section of the Greenhouse at my College has two nice Nepenthes in it. I wonder if I will be able to get a pulling or cutting to start my own. XD

    University of Southern Mississippi.
    I've heard about their bog garden, some people were bragging about it so I went to see it and it is pitiful. They only have about 6 Sars in it and nothing else, and they don't look particularly healthy. They need more sun, and I'm not sure about their soil. They are in a bed with other plants, and as we all know the soil/nutrition requirements are different. I think they are in soil that is too rich for them and are perhaps receiving fertilizers, so that may account for their poor condition. I don't think that anyone there really knows about these plants, but I certainly don't want to argue with the Botonist who has a Phd and I don't. Oh, and there are no name tags or anything to label the plants.

    I am envisioning a bed just for CPs, maybe just the ones that are native to Mississippi, which would be the S. Alata (I think), P. Pirmulifolia, and a type of sundew, but I'm not sure which, I'd have to look it up. These are the ones I know of, there may be more. And of course just about any Sar would work and do well here, as well as VFTs. So I could make a really awesome bog garden for CPs complete with plaques to name each plant and show their native habitat spread, like the zoo plaques tell about the animals. That is what I'd like to do, but they probably arent' going to allow it because they would have to pay for it. I haven't heard back from them yet.

    Could you write a grant? That would be great if you could. You can get those plaques that way. I work at a community college and somebody got them for our nature walk through a grant.

    Would you plant them in a container?

    catrus, I don't know, I have emailed the botany instructor and will have a meeting with him soon to discuss ways to make this happen. He's not even the teacher of the class that I will be doing this project for, but since this falls under his jurisdiction i was put in contact with him.

    I could put them in containers if I needed to, but what I'm thinking about it a flowerbed/bog garden set up just for CPs. I can put some sundews and p. primulifolia in there as well.

    Well, so far my project hasn't been approved, but next semester I'm going to try to take an "aquatics and wetlands plant life" class taught by the Botanist, so I may be able to bend his ear then. Right now the project that I got put on is cataloging the trees on campus.
