    CPs in CO

    I will be in the denver area next week and was wondering if there are any CP nurserys up in that area? I will be visiting family for an early Christmas and wouldnt mind checking out some plants if anyone knows of any places to look around.
    Thanks,

    Jeremiah. He's not a nursery, but his greenhouse is incredible.

    Technically, Jeremiah is part private collection, part US agent/seller for Sam Estes' Nepenthes. I don't know if he entertains visitors, but you may want to ask.

    Thanks guys, I will send Jeremiah an email and see if he might have an hour or two for me to drool all over his plants.

    Well I am back and I was able to meet up with Jeremiah and see his many greenhouses and I will say that it was one of the highlights of the trip. Jeremiah was super nice and spent 1.5 hours showing me around his greenhouses and showing me all of his plants. Taking time and explaining how each of his green houses worked and the ins and outs of each design.
    His plant collection was very impressive, even with it being winter time his plants still looked great. I got to see so many cool nepenthes that I lost track of names and just sat there with what had to be a dumbfounded look on my face. He had some very impressive highlanders with all the teeth you could want, more flytraps then you could shake a stick at and a few cephlotus that were a treat to see in person, but the iceing on the cake for me was his N. attenboroughii. I did get five new plants from him that once they get here to my house I will post up some photos.
    My only complaint was that I was so awestruck with the plants that I completely forgot to break out my cammera and shoot photos. I would HIGHLY recommend that if anyone is even passing through Colorado Springs and has a bit of extra time to give Jeremiah a call and take a look at his plants, it will be well worth the stop.

    Good to hear you got to see his place. It's definitely on my list of things to do.
