There really is no well established carnivorous plant society for Illinois and most of the midwest region. I think that it would be a good idea to start a society with at least meetings to share cuttings and talk about growing carnivorous plants in the midwest. I would like to start this organization, and I have the resources, but unfortunately I lack knowing enough growers in the area. I would much appreciate your help in starting up the society and knowing if there are enough avid growers to make this happen. For more details contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or respond on the thread. There was talk of a midwest cps in 2004 http://terraforums.com/forums/showth...idwest+society but that seems to have fallen through. I would want a society with regular meetings and maybe a convention of sorts.
