We drew huge crowds at Tower Hill this weekend. They ran out of parking spots at one point. They are going to give us the official attendance count on Wednesday. Most of our vendors did well and we were immediately invited back next year.
The Boston Globe attended this weekend which will likely lead to a story on our show.
The success of our show is attributed to the members of the NECPS who participated in planning and carrying out the show. We also received amazing cooperation and goodwill from Tower Hill.
We made a great impression for the type of people we are and we have the support of many people from Tower Hill.
Our plants made quite the impression on the crowd, many who have never seen anything like it.

That was an awesome show! I loved the location, crowd, and environment. I'm not sure how many of you saw it Sunday morning, but they have people with crumbers cleaning around the plants! That was an incredible level of detail!
I can't wait for next year, and I just walked in the door about 20 minutes ago!
It was a very successful, well attended show for sure. I think everyone involved enjoyed themselves from the visitors attending to the Tower Hill staff and volunteers thanks to the efforts of so many incredible NECPS members. Thank you all for your efforts and for letting me a part of this amazing society!
I spoke to the gentlemen who was at the gate when I left Sunday. I asked if he had an idea of how many people attended the weekend show. All he could say was " by the amount of cash we took in, at least a couple of thousand " Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to put on a great show! Some of the vendors had sold out, so all in all I say this was a great venue, and the staff at Tower Hill couldn't have done a nicer job, or had been more helpful.
Typically, they know within a few days, but I just heard there was a computer glitch that needed to get sorted out. They are also still waiting for the final numbers and TH will let us know once they know. I told them that many of us were very curious about the final count.
Johnny I d love some feedback on d.spiralisis since you have 95 percent of plants on Earth I saw yours and that's actually why I got obe of my own I was blown away dude .
D.spiralis is one of the easier South American species to grow. Like all SA Drosera, they have long roots and appreciate deep pots. I pot mine in milled lfs and perlite. I grow them under 4 T5 bulbs, 2 3600K warm spectrum and 2 10,000K cool. It doesn't seem too picky about temps as long as they stay under 85 degrees or so.
Spend your life doing weird things with strange people.
