Hello from Ithaca, NY and to all who attended the ICPS/NECPS conference 2012

Hi my name is Ryan, it's nice to finally join Terraforums at last! Recently I met a few possible terraforum junkies at the NECPS conference in Mass., and I said that I would be looking forward to meeting up with them in this forum. I am an environmental science major at ESF in Syracuse, focusing on conservation of wetland species of plants, primarily native orchids and of course our beloved CPs. I work a lot with asymbiotic germination, and tissue culture of many of these wonderful and amazing plants. I look forward to meeting all of you and learning something from everyone.

Hey thanks everyone for the warm welcome! Nice to hear from you Heli, how are your heli's from the show doing? I have excised multiple stem lengths of the cephalotus inflorescence as well as the heli's, the cultures are in the dark now, I'll give them three weeks and then I will let you know how they have done. Peatmoss (Gabriel), nice to meet you as well.

ahh you had just the drive i did. lol might have passed each other on the way to the meet. p.s it was the mega super ultra conglomeration of the NECPS and the ICPS it was the meets of all meets this year for the Carnivorous Plant world... us attendees should find ourselves lucky to have been able to attended such a extravaganza such as this.
