    The Botanical Gardens is opening a Cool House son, and they have informed me that several species of Nepenthes and other CPs will be on display. Finally a chance to see some highland neps and temperate CPs in Singapore [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    too bad...im banned from buying Cps now...when is it ? maybe ill go have a look
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    That is excellent. I've seen some temperate CPs overseas and my favourite has got to be the Cobra Lily. It looks great. It'll even be greater if the Botanic Gardens starts selling the CPs [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    The Cool House will only be opening in December, so we'll have to wait a little longer. I don't know if they're planning on selling anything, we'll see how things develop.

    vistary: I had an email correspondence with one of the Botanical Gardens people.

    "Regarding your comment on Nepenthes, I would like to inform you that
    several species of Nepenthes and a range of other carnivorous plants are
    included in the plant display in the Coolhouse. The Coolhouse will be
    opened to visitors in December of this year.

    Yours sincerely

    The Cool House at the SBG has a long gestation. There were initially some problems with the airconditioned and later, I heard that there was an accident. In addition, it appears that aircon also leaked quite badly. Anyway, treat what I said as rumours.

    The Botanical garden have been 'promising' to open the cool house for the last 2 or 3 years. Each time the opening date arrives they push it back another 6 months. I know that they have bromeliads mounted onto the concrete wall by the door way. Let's hope that it opens as planned this time.
    A 'pitcher gallery' is where the art is drawn by Mother Nature and a 'pitcher says a thousand words'.
    My pitcher gallery is at: http://community.webshots.com/user/neilsingapore
