    If you mean finding CPs in collections rather than in the wild, Fernando Rivadavia of Sao Paulo wrote this on another bulletin board last year:

    "Strangely enough, over 7 years after abandoning my old CP collection in a greenhouse at the University of Sao Paulo, the plants which look best (I passed by there recently) are some large Pings, maybe P.moranensis. There are still a few Neps around and well as plenty of D.binata and D.spatulata and some D.capensis. Maybe more, I didn't really look (I was more interested in the U.nelumbifolia thriving in a nearby bromeliad where I'd planted them around early 96 I think)."

    That greenhouse should not be too hard to find.

    Oi!

    My wife is Brazilian, and we were in Sao Paulo last June (she is from Jundiai). We were at a shopping mall, there was a plant sale there. I walked around and was surprised to find Venus Flytraps and some Nepenthes there for sale. A lot actually! And they were in absolutely beautiful shape, many red traps and huge pitchers. The weather there is absolutely perfect for growing probably every CP...outside! I just thought I would share my thoughts, perhaps you might have some luck like I did. I'll help you look around too, the best I can here in the US. Feel free to email me. Boa sorte!

    You could try emailing my friend in Brasil, Joao Roberto Gabbardo who is a friend to CPers and often helps those new to the hobby with seeds and spare plants.

    jrgabbardo@cpovo.net

    Please give Joao my regards, and good luck.
