    Hello all -

    Thanks to billyh for taking these pictures, and MORE IMPORTANTLY for signing up as a volunteer! There is a lot of work that needs to be done with the NASC plants at Jesse Jones Park, and the more help I can get, the more the North American Sarracenia Conservancy can accomplish! Like Billy said, "where are all the Houston CP enthusiasts?!?' No experience necessary folks!

    PK - That was a Nepenthes ampullaria 'Cantley's Red,' and yes, it is still hanging on. We changed out the poly folm on the greenhouse earlier this year, and some of the Neps got shocked by the additional sunlight. They'll all recover, but it will take some time.

    Baylorguy - San Antonio is just a suburb of Houston anyways; you're still welcome to volunteer any time you like!

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. Now come on out to the park and help NASC grow some plants! : )

    Regards,

    Mike

    Huh - I'll have to check this out. Didn't even know about it - it's only 20 minutes away, but of course I find out right before I'll be moving out of state!
