Hello fellow CPers,
I wanted to make you aware that the Southeastern Flower Show will be having a new division especially for exhibiting CPs. In the past Cps were exhibited in the Plants of the World class. The 2005 show will be held at the World Congress Center in Atlanta, March 2 - 6. Anyone is elligable to enter and there is no fee to enter horticultural specimens. You are however, responsible for watering your own plants during the duration of the show. Terriums are allowed. As always, no wild collected plants may be shown. There are several trophy awards(3) available in this new class in addition to the standard first, second, third ribbons. Plants are judged on horticultural perfection not one plant against another. So, it is possible that every one could get a first place/blue ribbon. We would like to make a good showing as this will ensure that this new class remains. Please consider entering your favorite Cp or start grooming/growing one for the show. Sarracenias forced into bloom for the show would be a first. For more information about the show or to order an exhibitor's guide go here:
There was a misprint in the exhibitor's guide and the CP divison is listed as Cephalotus Plants, Class H30. (silly non CP folks) David Mellard and I will be the advisors of this class.
I hope to see some of you there.
Brooks Garcia, Atlanta
