    Dyflam, no it was broken down and expierencing tech. difficulties when we went to Islands of Adventure at Universal.

    Ok pics now.


    Dr. Pat Calie of Eastern Kentucky University he specializes in botany and all the good stuff like that. My cousin Dr. Bonnie Gray of EKU is a Dr. of philosophy and introduced me to Pat on our sidetrip to Kentucky. Pat visited many areas with Sarracenia and saw every species in the south including jonesii,oreophila,flava atropupurea, alabamensis, etc. He is all for our project of the NASC and if anyone wishes to, can reach him at Pat.Calie@eku.edu He can tell you far more than what I can about the Sarracenia, my meeting with him was brief (around 2 or 3 hours) and limited things were discussed.

    N. truncata and ampullaria.

    Wonderful Phaphiopedilum


    Some Phalenopsis in the heart of the Fuqua Orchid house.


    A very nice N. lowii with exudate under the operculum.


    No idea what this was....maybe N. spectabilis x maxima?


    An impressive H. minor clump!


    The bog gardens

    The following photos are when I got to actually meet Ron Gagliardo (the creator of the Akai Ryu VFT) and he gave me the shortest tour he's ever given (he was pressed for time) of the Sarracenia house!




    Some sort of S. flava Didn't look at the tag.


    S. leucophylla 'tarnok'


    Ron and I in the house.
