THE THIRD EUROPEAN CARNIVOROUS PLANT EXCHANGE AND EXHIBITION
By Colin Clayton of Triffid Park

 

LEIDEN, HOLAND

Tina and I had just returned from the 4th International Carnivorous Plant Conference in Japan where we displayed our range of 'in and out of print' books for sale with great success.

So the decision to attend the Third European Carnivorous Plant Exchange and Exhibition was easy to make - YES, LETS GO.  40 kilos of books [that's only one each from our range] and 40 hours traveling time later, we were there!

Our companion stall holders in the Leiden Botanical Gardens included Phil Wilson from England who was selling Sarracenias and Ludomir Adamec from the Czech Republic selling Aldrovanda and aquatic Utricularias. The Germans Joachim Nertz, Oliver Gluch and Peter Harbarth had stalls selling many Nepenthes and Pinguiculas. Gert Hoogenstrid from Holland sold Heliamphora, Drosera and Utricularia.

A stunning display of carnivorous plants filled the central greenhouse, and in the afternoon lectures of international conference standard were given by Joachim Nertz on Nepenthes of the Malaysian Archipelago, Phil Wilson on Sarracenia in their habitat, and Andreas Wistuba spoke about Heliamphoras and Tepuis.

The day was rounded off with a delicious banquet held amongst the display of carnivorous plants in the glasshouse at the Botanical Gardens, in a relaxed atmosphere chatting with fellow carnivorous plant enthusiasts from all over Europe.

 

After the conference, Colin and Tina visited some commercial carnivorous plant nurseries in Holland.
