    There is one, it's called the CPN or Carnivorous Plants Newsletter. Unfortnately you can only get it by joining the ICPS International Carnivorous Plant Society, not at any retail news stands or bookshops.

    I have often wanted an exotic plants (not just CPs) magazine to buy but there is nothing for us plant freaks, or freak plant freaks! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    I am an independent publisher by hobby/trade and about 1-2 years ago I was trying to get the publisher of Uner het Palmblad (translated: Under the Palm Blade - www.palmbald.nl) to publish his quarterly exotic plants/terrarium magazine in English (translated from Dutch). I offered to do all the press/distribution and retail services however he found the cost of US printing to be highly prohibitive in comparison to printing with Belgian companies. The only problem printing there is transport costs from Belgium to the US, unfortunately the English edition idea was scrapped altogether.

    I encourage you to become an ICPS member, they publish a fine quarterly journal, as does the UK Cp society. I am working now at producing a "CP Cultivar Quarterly" who's focus will be publishing CP cultivar names, photos and descriptions to meet the International Congress of Botanical Nomenclature's (ICBN) prerequisite of publication in order to internationally register these cultivars. I can tell you such ventures are not inexpensive!

    Well it is not a paper published magazine but I have been trying to get the CP E-Zine going for a while. It is difficult to get articles and images sent in to put online. Please send what you can and invite your CP friends to do the same.

    cheers

    I agree with Tamlin: once you get interested in CPs (and even if you're a beginner), it's worth joining at least one CP society. I'm a member of the following:

    1. ICPS:
    www.carnivorousplants.org

    2. UK CPS (my "local" society):
    www.thecarnivorousplantsociety.org

    3. ACPS:
    www.acps.org.au

    I find all 3 are excellent, producing superb journals / magazines / newsletters, and providing access to excellent seedbanks, plus regional meetings, and can highly recommend all of them. There are many other excellent CP societies for various parts of the world (New Zealand, France, Germany, Netherlands, .... etc).
    Kind regards,

    Adam.

    I'm mainly interested in Drosera, Dionaea & Aldrovanda, Hardy Orchids (esp Dactylorhiza), Arums and Ericas (Heaths/Heathers - European + S.African)
