        For yourself and anyone else that's interested. The PNWCPC has
been meeting about once a year around August. However, we're hoping to
have a couple of meetings next year, one in spring (around May) and one
around fall (September or Oct). We figured the spring meeting would allow
newly bought plants lots of time to adapt to each individual's growing
conditions, as well as allow people to see many of the plants in bloom.
The fall meeting would give us an opportunity to talk about dormancy issues
as relates to the Pacific Northwest.

        Capes are really easy from seed, as are many other species of
sundews. I'm not sure what you mean by the Australian upright varieties,
although I think you may be referring to some of the tuberous sundews.
Unfortunately, not a lot of people in the PNWCPC, at least who I've talked
to, actually grow many tuberous species.

Happy growing,
