    Dave (schloaty) and I (if I recall correctly) will be working on a spreadsheet to track who is growing what. Once we get that set up it is important to get your information into the system AND to keep it updated.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Steve,
    sounds good! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    good plan.
    yes, there is no reason we cant just organise things ourselves, regardless of what botanical gardens or societies want or dont want to help out..
    and, as we get this society rolling, im sure more groups (like the ABG for instance) will take notice and take us more seriously once they see there is *reason* to take us seriously!
    I think we have to get this society rolling ourselves first, then the rest of the world will take notice once we are up and running..

    I am just getting started with Sarracenia myself, I already have 1 well established location plant (S.flava from somehwere's but I can't recall where I put the specifics right now, it's gotta be almost 10 years old and should flower this season from what I understand)

    I,too, will try my darndest to help spread the stuff I am currently working on, 3 specific location species and 1 more generalized one

    I am onboard, for what it's worth

    I am glad that so many want to help, but even with help there must be rules. This is the main one - The information on the plants must be a sure thing. There must be collection data. Where is it from, what exact loction? What plant is it - for sure? There must be no question.

    We will be glad to take the plants and seeds, but for now just let us know what you have and we will contact you. David and Tony are busy on the data base. Once that is going we can keep track of all the plants. Bugweed is right, it is up to us so we need to get moving. Information is a key ingredient to the success of this organization. Let's get it and get moving.

    Right now we need to know who has what. Even if you do not plan on giving material to the NASC right now, at least let us know what is still out there and in existance. Please contact myself or PAK with the needed information. Some of you have some connections. Use them and find out what other growers have.

    We still also need regulations of each state if you could please contact your state agencies. I have already tired to do this last year and most did not believe what I was telling them. You try. Tell them you live in the state and you are part of an organiztation that is trying to save endangered plant species. Tell them that we are legitimate and that we wish to do things right. To stay with in the law we must know the law.

    Thanks. I will add tomorrow.

    So, the solution is clear:

    Poach from the ABG!

    Stuffed shirts are a dime a dozen in this field these days. We need, as Copper said, hard info on these plants. Generalized plants are no good. We cannot use that kind on non-info.
