    New from Virginia

    hello,

    My name is Jay Austin, and I am addicted to carnivorous plants.

    I am a professional horticulturist at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Richmond, VA where among other things I manage the collection of CP's. We have a nice collection of Sarracenia that was originally installed in the mid 90's. I have taken over the collection and am in the process of expanding it.

    I have become a grower for the NASC and am safekeeping those plants at the Garden. I also have a growing personal collection.

    Anyway, I am happy to be here and look forward to making many new relationships here.

    Jay

    Welcome indeed! Do you know/collaborate with Phil Sheridan of the Meadowview Biological Research Station?
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Welcome! I am a fellow Virginian and grew up in the Shenandoah.
    Can't wait to see some pics of those plants.

    I met Dr. Sheridan this past summer. We took a trip up to Meadowview to pick up some plants we purchased. We got a nice tour of the Central Virginia Preserve and the growing facilities there. Excellent trip.
