    RI. Plant lovers and all those who enjoy something different will be able to get up close to hundreds
    of carnivorous plants exhibited by the members of the NECPS. Featured plants will include pitcher
    plants from Malaysia with traps the size of softballs that are capable of eating lizards and mice, There
    will also be sundews from Australia ranging from the size of a dime to 12+ inches high and the everpopular
    Venus Fly trap. For you native plant lovers, NECPS will also display carnivorous plants that

    insects. Plants and growing accessories will be available for purchase for both novice and
    experienced growers from carnivorous plant vendors and the NECPS. The permanent carnivorous
    plant bog exhibit will also be available for viewing. Society members will be present both days to

    at home.

    Actually Dave, I would say your show is THE best in the USA. None of the silly politics like we have here. I'll bet your judges wouldn't even consider awarding Best Of Show Grand Champion to a cactus and succulent dish garden at a carnivorous plant exhibition. Some people I guess!

    Best of luck to you and the folks who produce this wonderful event. I'm always amazed at how successful they've become.

    Philcula, I absolutely agree with you. Maybe if you and some of your friends displayed your carnivorous plants at a cactus and succulent show you would win Grand Champion. I am thinking of taking my prize begonia to the Bromeliad society show and see what happens LOL.

    Plantea,

    You can get yourself a round trip ticket to RI! Worth every penny! We've had people come up from FL, TN, NC....all over!

    Phil, thanks for the compliment! I'll pass that along to our President.

    It is worth every penny. I think I enjoyed hanging out with everyone more than the actual plants, although the plants were beyond amazing, too.

    Miguel: The BACPS has an annual show as well. You've missed it. It was about two months ago.

    When I see "BACPS" I always pronounce it "Bay-Caps".

    When I see "LACPS" I always pronouce it "Lay-Caps".

    So is NECPS....Knee Caps?
