    Hey Eplants,
    I've been there....they have a moderate collection. A few VFT's, D. capensis, adelaea, spatulata....Couple sars...don't remember which ones. Their best plants were all neps...I remember one particularly nice maxima, and there were a few other pretty good ones.

    No, we haven't been there. Is it in NYC? If you're planning a trip you'll have to let us know how it is. And, BTW...

    I know the Rochester Botanical gardens are "ok" but thier CP are horrid except for the strangling Nepenthes. I did however like thier orchids and tropical flora section. The birds of paradise were ENORMOUS! I cannot belive how in the world do they get plants that big in a conservatory? Are they planted into the actual eartch beneath the structure?
