THIRD MEETING OF THE MID-ATLANTIC CARNIVOROUS PLANT SOCIETY

1/15/2018

Last Saturday, Dan and I traveled to Princeton University in order to attend the third meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Carnivorous Plant Society, a new start-up CP society on the East Coast. The attendees included a healthy mix of CP veterans, new growers, and college students looking for something to perk up the dorm. The agenda consisted, among other things, of talks about growing tepui CPs (delivered by me and Dan), creating CP setups, tissue culturing Dionaea, and CP stamps. A plant auction rounded off the evening; quite a few nice plants were sold at even nicer prices.

A shoutout to the Princeton University Botany Club and Michael Szesze's Carnivorous Plant Nursery for helping to host the event and make it possible!

Here are a few of the display highlights from the meeting. In addition, the MACPS website is located here; if you're in the area, definitely sign up for the newsletter! The MACPS has quite a few interesting events planned for 2018.
