This year's show should really be fabulous. It will be a great way for people to see a magnificent variety of CPs - things you may only have seen in books or web pics. Last year the "Outstanding Plant" was a just frightening huge Nepenthes bicalcarata. We all agreed. It was worth trip, many said, just to see that one plant.
The annual show is a very nice way to pick up new plants for your collection since there will be CP vendors and NECPS member donated items - you might be surprized at what will be available, and will only know if you go........ Last year there was QUITE the battle going on during the silent auction of items very generously donated by Tony Paroubek!!!!
John Phillip, NECPS President, is setting up a deal at a local hotel for a reduced room rate and breakfast.
A new event for this year is a table where non-NECPS members can display their CPs, we'll vote and prizes will be awarded. We are going to have a few other new displays this year. One will be the results of the Grow Contest (members each got genetically identical tissue culture sarracenia last spring). Also, a "Member's Favorites" table where each NECPS grower can place their favorite plant and a description of why it's their favorite.
NECPS SHOW 2004
We are also hoping to have items with the new NECPS Logo:
I hope many of you can make it- we'd love to meet you. It's gonna be GREAT!
