Meet the man on a misson to save carnvorous plants - Sep 17, 2016 by Webmaster
BBC Earth - Stewart McPherson is prepared to go a long way for his science: even into the grounds of a prison in the Philippines. "I had to be guided by murderers," he says.

His target was, appropriately enough, a plant that kills: a tropical pitcher plant called Nepenthes deaniana that traps and digests insects. "It hadn't been seen for nearly 100 years."

McPherson has been fascinated with carnivorous plants since childhood. As an eight-year-old he came across his first species in a British garden centre. Immediately fascinated, he started a collection. After a couple of years, he had filled the family conservatory with hundreds of different plants.

The young naturalist found carnivorous plants extraordinary – as many others have for centuries. But despite their startling abilities, carnivorous plants are also in profound danger.

According to Maury Ryan, the show lost $100,000 this year alone, mainly due to bad weather.

Ryan also said he didn’t have any plans to pay the people who are owed money unless he can find a buyer for the Rhode Island Flower and Garden Show.

Both Ryan and federal court filings confirm that the company hasn’t yet filed for bankruptcy.
