    Bill - Yeah very impressive. What species was that I dont think I remember seeing a label on it. Honestly, the whole show was impressive, I was pleasantly surprised with the bog garden too. Just awesome.

    Greg -

    I wish you could have seen the bog in all it's glory when we first put in the plants.

    The Nepenthes there right now are magnificent. However, there was (is on and off) a pest problem at the botanical center. All the Sarrs in there got mealy bug, etc., and there was a problem with how it got watered by the staff. We ripped out all the Sarrs earlier this year. Only a few NECPS members live near the botanical center, but luckily one of them is John who tries to keep an eye on things and educate the staff. The administration at the botanical center/park absolutely LOVES us since everyone goes right to the carnivorous display and the NECPS Show is the largest event of the year there and draws the most people.

    I had my 18 inch pot mini-bog on loan to the botanical center near the bog as an educational display. It had sundews, flytraps, and several sarrs in it, also a ceph. I missed several meetings last fall/winter. When I finally saw it, aaaccckkkk, I was horrified and Ken laughed his head off saying, "...it's the perfect example of what NOT to do..." It was filled with weeds, scale, mealybug, the ceph had turned to mush. It has taken about 7 months to restore it - I hope you got to see it at the show.

    Hey Greg,

    I THINK that big one was a truncata x sibuyanensis.

    Yes, it was good to meet you Greg. Things were kinda crazy for me there... wish I had more time to BS. Glad you made it and it looks like you enjoyed the show!

    I'd probably be down with that... more for just meeting up to BS about plants than any official business. Possible places to meet? NYBG or the Brooklyn BG, or maybe some Diner or Bar in NYC which would be kinda central for LI-ers and lower UpStaters.
