NECPS Show 2016

This year, I was honored to be given the opportunity to speak at the New England Carnivorous Plant Society Show! There were so many topics I could’ve spoken on but I decided to go with speaking about Pygmy Sundew since people always ask me about them!

That wasn’t the exciting part…

The SHOW was the exciting part! Holy guacamole… the plants and displays there were top notch. Believe it or not, around 2,400 people came through the Tower Hill Botanic Garden for the show. Can you believe two thousand four hundred people in one place looking at carnivorous plants?? Of course, not all of them were there at once.

This was a two day event that lasted from morning till late afternoon, and it was amazing.

Here are some of the photos I took!

Probably my favorite picture from the show, this was part of Matt Kaelin's display!
