    Attention Oregon and Washington growers:

    Several local growers and I hold a meeting on the second Saturday of every month to discuss, show, and giveaway carnivorous plants. The participants range from Forestry Service employees to students, and nursery owners to simple hobbyists, who all have a common interest in these plants. Nearly every genera of carnivorous flora is discussed or brought in, including Nepenthes, Heliamphora, Drosera, Dionaea, Cephalotus, Darlingtonia, Sarracenia, Utricularia, Pinguicula, etc.. We hope to encourage anyone with an interest in plants to attend, even those who are totally unfamiliar with botanical carnivory.

    We will be meeting at the Moon & Sixpence British Pub (2014 NE 42nd Ave, Portland, OR) at 3 p.m. on Saturday, October 12th. We usually stay for a few hours, so don't worry about showing up late. Minors are allowed in the pub, which also serves great British pub food and usually hosts a gypsy jazz band.

    Remember, this is just a casual meeting of like-minded carnivorous plant enthusiasts and will not have any of the formalities of a Society meeting (we're generally not fans of Robert's Rules).

    For those attending, simply look for a group of people with a table full of plants.

    Hope to see some new faces this weekend!

    One last thing..

    If everyone could bring some plants to "show and tell" tomorrow, that would be great. I'm expecting more attendees than usual, many of whom probably don't grow these plants, so it would be nice to show a somewhat diverse representation of CPs.

    I'll see you guys tomorrow!

    Whew, that was fun! I hope everyone else had as good a time as I did. And a record turnout. I want to thank Jeff and Jacob for all the plants they donated. Our server and bartender even went home with nep plants!

    I agree. Good times and nice to see new faces! The dozens and dozens of plants Jeff and Jacob brought to giveaway was the icing on the cake.

    A little late posting, but life gets in the way sometimes.

    Yes, a great turnout and a good time was had by all, always nice to see new faces. It was nice to have our local CP vendor attend our get-together as well and I hope to see them come often. Jeff and Jacob gave away over 50 Nepenthes at this meet!! I put my blinders on and managed to came home with only one plant, a Utricularia dichotoma from generous Mark, and all the plants I brought found good homes and I now have space in the house for more ceph propagation. The photo below is three tables full of plants at this meet, a record for sure.
