Hey everyone -
I just got back from the ICPS conference. What an absolutely GREAT time it was.
The best part for me was meeting the people in person who I know from online groups like these Terraforums or the CP Listserve.
There were many presentations including one Andreas Wistuba gave on Heliamphora. So then, we were all on pins and needles for a while because Andreas Wistuba's plants were supposed to be there Thursday but were held up and almost didn't make it to the meeting. There was a MOB drooling and waiting when the FedEx finally arrived Saturday at noon.
Another fabulous presentation I recall was the close up photography of CPs we watched with 3D glasses and Steve LaWarre's talk on how they they built the CP House at Meijer Gardens was fascinating.
As for plants, myself, I picked up:
N. macrophylla from Wistuba
N. hamata clone2 from Wistuba
Heliamphora heterodoxa "nutans" from Wistuba
HUGE N. petra cutting from the auction ( I gotta go pot it up )
N. burbidgea from the auction
Time for some other folks to add more details & photos but until then......guess who won the Best of Show in the plant contest?
