Bob Beer,

this afternoon I went to see our little botanic garden, just to see how
their CP's were doing.
One or two D.binata an D.capensis were big already and one S.purpurea
even was flowering. There also was a flowering P.vulgaris .
Several other D.'s were hardly better than dead.
All plants had plastic labels as you often see at plants in the
supermarket. There were a few cleaner (=newer) labels mentioning CITES.
This is new to me. And it tells how they 'keep' their plants :-)
There also were a few Sarr.hybrids (doing badly).


last summer I reported you about a withering Nepenthes they had.
This time no trace of any Nepenthes.

Regards, Wim.
