Hello carnivorous plant enthusiasts! Fresh off our social today, we are letting you all know about a slight programming change for the next programmed meeting on the 15th of May. It was scheduled to be about Utricularia (bladderworts), but because of an unavoidable scheduling conflict, our November speaker can’t make the November date. Fortunately, he has graciously offered to move his presentation up to our May meeting. This now means that:
Sunday, 15 May, 3pm – Highland Nepenthes (tropical pitcher plants): royalty among carnivorous plants (plant group presentation – you don’t need to know anything about plants to enjoy this presentation)
Sunday, 13 November, 3pm – The genus Utricularia (the bladderworts): we’ll talk about the largest group of carnivorous plants and their various adaptations, including their marvelous and mysterious bladder traps (plant group presentation – you don’t need to know anything about plants to enjoy this presentation)
Not too dramatic of a change, but we thought everyone would like to know. Of course, both meetings will be at the Watershed. But before all of that, there is the sale!
We’ll send out another reminder with more details, but Saturday the 30th of April, and Sunday the 1st of May, we’ll be hanging out with out friends of Twin Cities Genseriads at Bachman’s on Lyndale in Minneapolis. So, mark your calendars to come out and buy some little carnivorous foliage friends and maybe a UMCPS t-shirt. See you there!
