    oh man...........

    All these cool CP club/shows are always located on the coasts. (of the US)

    I wonder if there are any mid-west CP clubs? Or even in the tri-state area of Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.

    I've Dogpiled for such clubs in my area and have found none.

    Fryster, if you can't find any clubs in your area, you should start up your own. You could send out emails to local nurseries, libraries, high schools and colleges, and even other plant societies and garden clubs. Once you find a group interested you need a meeting place. You can gather almost anywhere, but it depends upon the size of your group. The most important thing to starting a club, if you are willing to take on the responsibility, is first finding people who would be interested. I hope you can start the first cp club in your area because there are a lot of people missing out on growing these amazing plants. Most don't even know they exist. Good luck.

    I had thought of starting a club or group or something... I'm not much of an organizer and my CP experience is pretty limited however...

    I'll probably just inquire at local greenhouses and garden supply stores to build a network of CP interested people.

    The 'heads' at the local hydroponic grower's supply seemed pretty interested in the CP's I had described to them. hehe...

    A small network of people would be a nice way to start I think. I'll see what I can do.

    THANKS!!
