    Would you go see Carnivorous plants in the wild?

    I saw this link from a monthly news letter titled "CP Expedition".

    I feel like I just discovered a



    This are organized trips in the US and overseas to see Cps in the wild!!

    Cray Cray, I actually want to visit South Africa this summer, maybe I can squeeze that part of my trip in there. Too bad it's in September. Oh well, I may pay to see Cobra Lilies though

    Anybody else have gone or is interested?

    Red Fern Natural History sponsored trips are truly an amazing experience. If you get the chance and have the means, I highly recommend participating. It is a once-in-a-life time experience you don't want to miss.

    I attended a Philippino expedition in December of 2013 and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life.

    My parents have a house fairly close to Butterfly Valley Botanical Area, where Darlingtonia grow wild. I plan to visit there in late spring/early summer!

    I have been to Indonesia twice, but never did see any wild growing Nepenthes.

    These expeditions sound really awesome!
    I was actually down in the Cape(South Africa) last year but did not visit any of the CP sites (Did not really know where to look to tell the truth)
    I am going again in April but don't think I will stay long enough to get a chance to go exploring the wilderness. Would really love to see CP's in the wild though!!
