Linda Lemieux (the president of the SCAPI-CCPS) and I were talking about putting together and organizing a large meeting and workshop for a couple of CP-growing groups in November, and I suggested that the OCPS could also take part in this event, since lots of Quebec CP growers could meet up and exchange plants, talk, participate in the workshop, etc...
The three societies (the SHEIP Société d'Horticulture Environnementale des villes de l'Île Perrot; the SCAPI-CCPS societé canadienne des amateurs des plantes insectivores/canadian carnivorous plant society; and OCPS of course) to which this workshop/meeting is proposed will probably meet in November for the actual workshop (a room will be rented and used for the workshop at the Jardin Botanique de Montreal)
During the workshop, the theme is making a large terrarium full of CP's. The terrarium will probably be quite big (if you've seen the terrarium in the Exhibition Greenhouses at the BG, you'll know what I'm talking about) and will most likely be used for species that don't require a dormancy (what I've talked about with Ms. Lemieux, we're sure to include some of her huge Nepenthes and a few sundews). If you're trying to learn how to make a proper planted terrarium with a natural look to it, this is probably a good workshop to attend.
The SCAPI administration and I are still working on the idea of this, although I'm sure it will come together pretty quickly. I'll be posting news and/or changes about this as they come up. Hopefully, this event will be pretty successful, with lots of members showing up (the more the merrier!
Please drop me a PM if you'd be interested or have questions, and I'll be passing the word to Mme Lemieux.
