Want to buy plants?! This is the best plant show to select from the greatest variety of carnivorous plants. We recommend you bring some cash.

The main event is the plant division workshop and trade! Join us and bring your extra Sarracenia divisions and Nepenthes cuttings to trade! Not sure what to do? Learn at our workshop how to properly divide Sarracenia and take Nepenthes cuttings and root them. Bring any plants that need to be divided, and consider sharing or trading some divisions with others!
Go to the BACPS Facebook Group Page to tell people what you wish for and have to trade! Selling is OK too but we encourage the more fun of trading! Here is the link to the BACPS Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/BACPS/
