Tom, Krissy

glad to meet you. I am VERY, and I mean VERY interested
in getting everything you can give me. As I was writing on
the article I posted to the cp@opus, I am trying to collect
all the species and varieties I can, to bring them to the
Botanical Garden of the University of Padua. Thousand people
will see and enjoy the plants that you will give us.

I am cooperating with Raffaele, a researcher at the Botanical
Garden. We are trying to setup a huge permanent display of
cp. We already have some species, but need many, MANY more.
The Botanical Garden lives over donations, that's why I
immediately thought at the net as the most valuable source
of both knowledge and collaboration. The most friendly and
kind people I know were all met on the net.

Anyway, I will include now the list I posted in the cp@opus.
This list contains all of the species currently propagated
at the Botanical Garden. Almost everything is available by
root cutting or seed. Nepenthes by stem cutting.
Raffaele is right now collecting seeds. We should be able
to have quite a big quantity of seeds and other material
to send you.

Byblis liniflora Salisb.
Dionaea muscipula Ellis, ex Linn.
Drosera adelae F. Muell.

I will bring your list to Raffaele on monday, and we will
examine it in detail, but I already know we would like to
have something from the 99.67% of the plants you have ;-)
Tell me what you would like to get from our list.

By the way, Krissy, you are the first girl who grows CP
I know about (other than my girlfriend). Maybe this is
a side-effect of having a cp-maniac boyfriend :-)

Anyway, Krissy, Tom, thank you for your kindest reply.
I strongly hope to hear from you again, and to start a
wonderful cooperation.

Write soon.

Kindest regards,
