    Nice pics Schloaty -

    I have to wait to finish shooting the roll and get them developed.

    By the way folks, those bical pitchers were H U G E!! Big as a softball - one of the scariest plants I have ever seen...

    I want a camera like Schloaty's!

    My photos are up on the NECPS page, but i haven't done the writeup yet - words fail me. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    I also was too excited to remember to photo a lot of cool plants, so i'm counting on you guys to fill in the gaps. I know i took a photo of Ken's huge, awesome N. rafflesiana, but it disappeared somewhere.

    Schloaty, if you have any photos you want to contribute to the NECPS album, please send them to me.

    The best story i heard from the show was the kid who came in, waving a $1 bill, saying "I want to buy a carnivorous plant... i want to buy that plant..." (plunking down his dollar):


    Hilarious!

    You're lucky Nathan... The kid offered me the $1.00 for your massive VFT. I almost took the dollar ha ha ha...

    My favorite story was asking "Does anyone know why carnivorous plants eat bugs?" A polite kid raises his hand and answers "To obtain Nitrogen to help them grow in poor soils". A bit stunned, I asked if he knew where "Venus Fly traps grow in the wild?" Without blinking he answered "North Carolina". He confided in me later that he had a Utricularia terrarium and that he had driven 700 miles!!! with his mother to attend the show.

    I gave him a hunk of Schloaty's donated U. livida and he gushed "This is the best show EVER!!!" With John's blessing we gave him a D. capensis and a couple of tubes of Dr. Uhnak's Cp's. One happy kid left the show!!

    Kirk, i just wish that VFT was mine... my big one died. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] RIP
    That one belongs to Jeff. When i exclaimed at its amazingness, he just said in a diffident kind of way "Actually, it looks terrible to me. It froze a few nights ago and i just cut off around 50 traps." !!!! Woah!

    Is the kid you're talking about the one in the photos i have of you lecturing by the big bical?

    Yeah, cameo appearance by Schloaty's gracilis. Sooooo close to fame, Schloaty. Heh heh. That heliamphora was amazing... but so were all the other plants!

    Actually, you do have your moments of glory. I find this photo quite hilarious: it invites all kinds of captions....



    The one i picked was "Friends don't let friends do Sarracenia juice - JUST SAY NO!" But "A toast to us" would have worked as well [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
