    Meadowview Biological Research Station

    I went to Virginia for a pseudo vacation this week and was able to make it up to Meadowview. I will post more once I get back, but I just wanted to share some of what I captured here.

    I met Phil Sheridan along with his intern Nathan. They were both very nice and hospitable. The plants were truly a sight to behold!

    More to come once I get back from vacation!

    EDIT: Pics removed from photobucket... sorry. Look at slideshow below.

    Congrats on getting out there Dash. This is definitely on my to do/wish list sometime in the future. Nathan said he would try to make it out there this summer, glad he was able to do so. This visit calls for more pictures!

    Thanks. I have about 50 pictures so I will post more. Honestly, I was so awe struck I don't think I captured the true beauty and size of these plants. Size as the real emphasis here.

    Wow now THAT'S a big boy! Phil definitely is a very experienced (and well respected IMO) enthusiast! Thanks for the reassurance that I HAVE to eventually make it out there

    Yes, that was probably the largest pitcher I came across. But there were other's only slightly smaller. I would say Dr. Sheridan is on the tops of my list, if for nothing else because he is the only person that I know of who can legally sell endangered sarracenia in the US. And, the proceeds go to conservation!

    yup i went last october, I know a bit late, but i didnt know about it till then , I just called Phill and he met me there on a sunday i think.
    He is very nice and doesnt make you feel uncomfortable asking questions, very helpful and willing to spend some time with you ,of course I was the only person there at the time LOL, but Im sure its just in his nature. He wants to teach ,and get out as much info about their efforts there, so yes its a real treat.
    I feel lucky to be this close, and I would highly recommend a trip if you can .
    Im going back in the next week or two, its 3 1/2 hours for me.
    It should, nicer this time since they had trimmed a lot of the sarrs back for the season in October.
