  1. Looking good Fernando! Ping Castle eh? I think I have plans that weekend... shucks!
  2. Hi Jim! How ya been pal? Hope your plants are well :)
  3. It's been waaaaay too long since I last logged into CPUK! Thanks for forcing me to do so Fernando! And I'm so glad you were pleased enough with the results to post the pictures here! What will you have us build on our next visit? xoxo Megan
  4. I LOVE this. Just love this! Do you have a background in arts or crafts? It's very inspiting and I may need to make one for myself :) Thank you for sharing! Wish I could see it in person and have a photograph taken with it! Job very well done!
  5. Thanks for the comments everyone! It was a great trip- so much activity packed into 4 short days. Aidan, I did indeed come home with a few 1955's :) Bob was very sweet. Fernando, I'm so sorry that I don't know what kind of Nep that was.... at that point in the trip, I was dizzy and nauseated and wasn't really paying much attention. Just wanted to get pictures, so that I could enjoy the sights when I felt better. :) Peter D. said that he supplied most of the plants at Chomp. I'll drop him a line to see if he can recall. Pingman, it sure was fun! A future talk though... um ... maaaaaaaaaybe. I'm shy! hey Ivan, yep, Brian and I were pretty impressed by what we came across :) Thanks Jimscott! hahah ;) Hi Steve! It was great to meet you, is it ALWAYS that hot in Morgan Hill? Dear god, I thought I might keel over and perish... I look forward to seeing your pictures... if you become unlazy!
  6. Hi Friends! CorrosiveHalo and I had a couple of days off last week, and decided to power up the coast to do as many CP-related activities as possible. Pictures below... LOTS of pictures... We left late on Wednesday night and got all the way to Albion bog by Thursday. Finding the bog took some time, but with Brian's super-human navigation skills, we did it! We were pretty shocked to find so many kinds of CPs. Welcome to the photo tour! PYGMEA!! I almost didn't see these little guys! Footsteps from previous visitors... Brian snapping pictures Darlingtonia were strong growers, and about a foot tall! Sea of red drosera Even VFTs!! My shoes as we left Albion. I spared you the photo of my muddy and mosquito-bitten legs. :disgusted: On Friday, we stopped for a bit at Fort Bragg's glass beach, and then hit the road again, to drive north for a BobZ visit. It was such a treat to get to chat with him and take in the view at his home. In the greenhouse Bog full of 1955's 'True Blue' On Saturday, we visited California Carnivores and the always-charming Peter D'amato. The weather was perfect, and the plants were beautiful! Sunday was our busiest day BY FAR. First stop was "Chomp!" at the San Francisco Conservatory (plants provided by Peter D.), then we went to the BACPS bbq and met some new friends... and finally, we went to Phil Faulsi's house to look at his mind-blowing collection. I woke up on Sunday feeling very ill, so the photographs pretty much stopped by the time we got to the bbq. I had to concentrate on not fainting/or getting sick on anyone...oooof, it was a hot day Anyway- hope you enjoyed the photos! It was quite a trip!
  7. Very nice! Love the color of the plant and its flower :)
  8. I've seen variegation in orchids, and common houseplants... Does anyone know if variegation in CPs is from lack of chlorophyll, or genetic make-up. Can you force variegation?
  9. Excellent! Love to see CPs in habitat. Well done :)
  10. Where are your aphids?! LOL. Your plants are very pretty!
  11. Those look about 400x nicer than mine ;) Way to grow!!
  12. Beautiful color on your Sarracenia flava rugelii x chelsonii!! Love it!
