    Fans of carnivorous plants are forming club in Buffalo area

    "Plants that turn the tables on the animal kingdom and get their nutrients from insects are fascinating. If you are a fan, or if you would just like to learn more, check out the Western New York Carnivorous Plant Club that is being formed.

    The new organization is for amateurs as well as professionals.

    Kenny Coogan, one of the founders, said the group’s mission is “to function as an educational organization interested in all phases of cultivating carnivorous plants and to aid in the propagation and dissemination of carnivorous plants in the Western New York Area.”

    The group will hold its first meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 2, probably in the Tonawanda or Buffalo area. It plans to meet on the first Tuesday of every month, perhaps year round.

    For more information, you can visit the group’s Facebook page or e-mail wnycpclub@aol.com.

    Looks great, they appear to be getting good coverage - even a piece on a local TV station.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    ....and I got a response:

    Hi Scott,

    What type of plants do you currently have or are willing to trade? If you are interested I could meet you at another time that if convienant and try to trade some of your plants with other members at the meeting.

    I will have much more info after we meet as a group on August 2nd. I will put some feelers out at the first meeting to see what people have and what people are interested in getting.

    Thank you for contacting us - I will get back to you soon.

    I have some capensis and spathulata sundews that I can trade and a scarlet belle pitcher plant.

    Kenny Coogan
