    Some dormant UNCC plants (pics)

    I was at the UNC-Charlotte greenhouse Monday. Not A Number had asked me to take some pictures of Dr. Mellichamp's hybrids, so I thought I'd oblige.

    A couple problems: First, they're all still coming out of dormancy, so John - the nice man who was showing me around and chatting while he worked - seemed pained that I'd take pictures of them in such a sad state. I explained that they were "famous" and people were curious. I think that eased his mind.

    Nonetheless, he made me promise to come back in April for some "after" shots, and for their big Spring Sale. Heh...

    Second problem - it was raining. I tried to take advantage of a lull and snapped a few quick shots, but the rain came back up strong so I took a few photos and ran back inside. They have MANY more plants than I was able to photograph. I will definitely go back in a few weeks and try to get shots of all their CPs, inside and outside, in all their glory.

    But for now here are a few rushed, uncropped shots of some sleepy Sarracenias in one of their several bogs. If anyone wants to see better versions I have them in 2592 x 1944:

    Dr. Mellichamp had S. 'Ritchie Bell' available last year. Fantastic plants! If you can go go!

    Your making me even more excited about going! Hopefully some good hybrids will be available.
    Do they only sell the cps at certain times? Or are they there all of the time with the rest of the plants for sale?
