    Arrow NECPS show is drawing close! Official annoucement!

    The 8th Annual Fall Carnivorous Plant Show
    Sponsored by the New England Carnivorous Plant Society
    Providence RI: The award winning New England Carnivorous Plant Society (NECPS) will again be
    hosting the Fall Carnivorous Plant Show at the Roger Williams Park Botanical Center Providence
    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
    grow locally in Rhode Island and throughout New England.

    This is the largest collection of carnivorous plants displayed yearly on the
    east coast and the most popular show at the Botanical Center.
    Over 300 plants are scheduled to be on display !

    Free seminars on growing and feeding carnivorous plants will be offered!
    Lots of opportunities for photographers!

    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
    explain how the plants feed, what they eat, where they live, and how they can be grown and enjoyed
    at home.

    Roger Williams Park Botanical Center

    You betcha.
    There is one retailer that is always there with a good selection of CPs and exotics. The NECPS members will be selling plants as well. There is a silent auction (for NECPS members) where you can usually get some great deals -- I got a practically new copy of McPherson's Pitcher Plants of the Old World Vol. 1 for half the retail price. There's usually a couple of nice Sarracenia there, and dews and Neps as well. Last year I picked up a nice-sized roridula for about $15.
    If you're coming, please bring any plants that you are proud of for display! If you want to contribute, we're also looking for plant donations to sell at the NECPS table.
    Insanity is a sane response to an insane world.

    I'm entirely sure TSA would not like it if I brought my big mixed australians pot on the plane with me...hummer's giant ceph and pygmy dews in a foot tall pot

    I haven't bought plane tixs yet, but I'm still hoping to go.

    Still haven't bought tix yet but I'm thinking at the end of this week I'll decide what I'm doing. What hotel y'alls staying at when you're there? I think I need suggestions on where to stay and like...how to get there (carpool?) and stuff

    Help?
