    Borneo Exotics @ Singapore Garden Festival, 25th July - 1st August

    Hi everyone,

    Finally, I have time in front of the computer to give you some updates. I have been at Suntec City after work doing little odd jobs like clearing the display area of things, setting up tables for the sales booth and ferrying things down to Level 4 from Level 6.

    The display is now being set up. It is a lot of hard work and there are at least 6-8 people working at a time. Not wanting to give away what you will see at SGF when it starts, there are about 500 Nepenthes on display together with many other rare and special plant species. Currently, the structure is being put up and plants will be going in next week.

    At Level 4, they have three sales booths. What can we expect?
    *Books - two books and the authors will be around for autographs for certain days (more details about the titles and the authors later)
    *Posters - photos of Australian CPs e.g. Pygmy Sundews, Cephalotus, Utricularia etc by Phill Mann and his buddies
    *Art work - by Mr William Richard Taylor (Nepenthes lovers would have seen his work which Rob posted on the forums)
    *Plants - Nepenthes (will update on the species once the consignment arrives) and Cephalotus
    *Others - let me go and check it out later today, hehehe

    Both the display on Level 6 and the sales booth on Level 4 are right in front of the entrance so you won't miss them! Do drop by and visit us if you are in Singapore during this period!
