    I'm sure you're right about ABG, Tre. But I've never been there. That was just my opinion of the display as a nice multiple genus one, but hey I already said that! I guess my opinions are like everlasting gobstoppers:

    JBL if you are ever in Atlanta make sure you go there. Sadly ABG has a bigger display in the Kids garden then most other BGs I have been too. ACtually it is a bit larger then mine also (I think, I'll have to check again next time I am there).

    One of the things you guys have to remember is that this was a very temporary display. I think it looks real good. When I look at this picture I can imagine the time that went into placing plants, packing moss around everything so no pots are showing, Making sure flowers, leaves and pitchers are all facing the right way and look natural, making labels, etc, etc.

    Sure you can go see some permanent collections at places like ABG that will blow your shorts off, but those are permanent collections!

    I think this was a pretty darn good exhibit myself...

    I just meant some of the species/var. that they chose. I mean Borneo exotics has some well fairly exotic Neps. This had most of the var. of flava along with some hybrids and Cv. (Judith Hindle I think I see) which are not that impressive becasue they are so common. Maybe I am thinkabout this too mcuh as a Cper and not enough as a common person.

    Hey Brooks, thanks! They are both superior displays. I have to admit that I too favor the Sarracenia display like JBL but that's merely because I prefer Sarracenia to Nepenthes. There's just something "home grown, baseballish, and apple pieish" about Sarrs even though the Nep display was superior from a design perspective and in my opinion it should have won. I guess I'm just a superficial person. There's something flat out feel good and conforting when I see a wave of Sarrs all spread out like that.

    Oh, hey..it looks just like my backyard. Just kidding. I think it looks really nice...but I haven't seen the Borneo one, either. I can see why it got a gold medal. Aprilh

    Could somebody please post a picture of Borneo's exhibit. If you say it's better than this one, then it's got to be good.
