    Today was the quarterly BACPS meeting at UCBC
    It was by far the most confusing mess I've ever seen [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]
    Due to horrendous traffic I didn't make it for the raffle but I do know that many heliamphora where donated to it also Zach Lim (Cephalotus88 ) donated at least a U.Gibba there were more oddities such as aldrovanda etc.
    John (Spectabilis73) didn't make it for some odd reason
    The vendors including Phil Faulisi and so many others came to the show also the guys from HortusBotanicus in Fort Bragg Cali came and displayed at least a hundred Neps and sold some soil mixes. I even saw vendors who had only been into cps for 3 months and still selling plenty.
    I personally picked up a D.Dichotoma "Giant" for $5 from Phil
    A N.Bical from HortusB for slightly more...
    One man was selling a couple drosera some byblis seeds and a real nice 3" pot of 2 N.Spectabilis with tons of pitchers and tons of that green moss that pops up everywhere he threw in a D.NitidulaXPygmae and a ? drosera (I can't read his handwriting) so I got it too.
    I obviously couldn't stop myself so I got a large N.Ventrata just to deplete the rest of my money

    Eventually The judges (Peter D' Amato,Geoff Wong,etc.) got finished judging the plants brought in

    Best of show went a beautiful Nep in a clear case being as stupid as I am I forgot to write the name down...

    1st place for Vfts was a wide bowl filled with well cared for and huge vfts atleast 15 vfts whose traps reached 1 1/2" to 2 1/2"

    1st place for Drosera a huge clump of binata so dense I never saw the pot

    1st place for CP Art a metal sculpture of a vft with multiple traps mimicking the real thing some were open others were closed it won over 2 other pieces both drawings of sarrs

    It was too packed to notice the other winners but the show was a hit and was fun for everyone who participated

    I'm hoping that the fascination of cps will grow in the future, so that we are lucky enough to have one of these meeting, in every region, so we will all be able to expand our knowledge, with more intruging sites of these facinating species =D.

    Well said!

    A lot of people were there who had never kept cp's b4 and were fascinated by them I just hope they know to use distilled water!

    This was my first time at the BACPS and traffics was a mess. Unfortunately, I was not able to stay for more than an hour...but the plant sale was amazing! I found some great P. emarginata specimens, as well as D montana v tomentosa, and what is labeled as D admiralibis (although I don't think thats what it is). It is still a fantastic plant. I wish I had had the presence of mind to get the names of the vendors so I could help support the cultivation efforts. If any of you in the Bay Area know the vendors...esp the folks selling Pings and Sundews please let me know! I'm currently working of a whole slew of P esseriana seedlings that hopefully will be ready to donate at the next meeting.
