    I have known of Manny for quite some time. Since he was really young. I remember hearing how his parents would take him to CP sites and reinforce his love of CP. GOOD PARENTS!!!!! He not only has the nep named after him, but he has a beautiful plant from Citronelle (Is the locale right, Manny?) also with his name . I believe it to be a s. X readii, and its beautiful, but Manny could tell you more about that than I, and with the proper ID!!!!!

    WELCOME Mr. Herrera. I, for one, am pleased you are here! Good to have experience join us.

    Thank you all again for such kind words and warm greetings.

    Plantakiss...I will be in Alexandria. So yes...I will be a Virginian. I'd love to meet with fellow CPers in the area. I've met Phil, Don, and Bill...wonderful guys. Don was a great inspiration to me while I was a youngster growin CPs.

    Steven...there is a Sarracenia cultivar named after me. It is actually a purpurea hybrid from Citronelle, Alabama. It is most likely purpurea x alata. But in that meltingpot it can be so many things.

    Glider...N.mirabilis x khasiana is the hybrid referred to as N.'Manny Herrera'. It was the first Nep hybrid I ever made (along with Clyde Bramblett). I was about 14.

    Thanks again all.

    Welcome Manny. I look forward to sending you that okee giant you snatched from Josh. Sorry Josh! Couldn't resist. When you're relocated, I'll send the plant. Enjoy the company of the forum.

    Yeehaah! Take note folks...if you are into CPs...Virginia is the place to be. lol

    I've been to Old Town Alexandria several times but that was a long time ago. And my brother got married there. (Bet he wishes he could have a "do over" on that one )
