NECPS March Meeting

The March NECPS meeting will be held on Saturday, March 21 at 12:30 PM at Logees Greenhouses at 141 North St., Danielson, CT.(Directions).

Logee's Greenhouses was started by William D. Logee in 1892 in Danielson, Connecticut. He started as a cut flower business and soon became interested in tropical and unusual plants. In 1900, he bought a small Ponderosa Lemon tree from a grower in Philadelphia. It was known as the "American Wonder Lemon" due to the size of the fruit, which could get as large as 5 pounds. The tree was a must for the Logee collection. It was shipped via train, then picked up by horse and buggy and directly planted into the ground in the original greenhouse. The same tree in the same greenhouse (appropriately called the Lemon Tree House) still stands today, and is reliably producing 5-pound lemons every year. Hundreds of thousands of propagations have been harvested from this original tree.

A silent auction is also being planned.

ICPS Conference 2020 Japan Invitation

The 13th ICPS Conference will be held in Himeji Japan on May 22-24, 2020. Himeji is renowned for its castle, which is a World Heritage site and one of Japan's most beautiful and well-preserved castles. The conference will be held at a site just 8-minutes walk away from this historical masterpiece.

The conference will be held in the Large Hall on the 6th floor of the Biz-Space, a conference facility which is located a 7-minute walk from Himeji Station, within walking distance of more than 20 hotels. During the 3-day conference, plant exhibitions and sales booths will be open in the Middle Hall on the 5th floor of the Biz Space.

The lectures and poster presentations will cover diverse topics including leading-edge scientific research, informative reports from carnivorous plant habitats all over the world, and horticultural techniques. Lectures will be translated by professional interpreters to encourage participation and discussion between Japanese and Western participants.

The conference dinner will be held in the banquet room "Ciel" on the 14th floor of the Hotel Monterey Himeji, located directly north of Himeji Station, on Saturday May 23. There you can enjoy a good mix of Japanese and Western cuisines and Japanese sake and wine, together with an impressive nighttime view of Himeji Castle through the windows.

On Monday May 25, there will be a special day trip by bus to two botanical gardens near Himeji. In the Tegarayama Conservatory Botanical Garden, many Nepenthes hybrids created in Japan can be seen as well as giant Nepenthes truncata (50-cm tall pitcher). The Hyogo Pref. Flower Center has Japan's premier collection of carnivorous plants, and is one of the reasons we chose Himeji as the conference site. Don't miss this opportunity to meet the colossal Nepenthes clipeata, N. pervillei, and N. khasiana grown there!
