I recently was invited to give a presentation on CP's to a local garden club, I was surprised on how much time it took to put the presentation together; I think the effort was worth it.
The members of the garden club did not seem to be aware of CP's and the fact that so many are native to the US; some even present here in Minnesota
It seems to me that education is the first step we all need to take to promote conservation of the environment in which these CP's thrive. I would encourage all members to share their knowledge of CP's to the general public, we will all benefit Ed
It has been my experience the vast majority of people aren't familiar with these plants. Sure, they've some exposure to them but only insomuch as what was gleaned from having watched "Little Shop of Horrors".
Good that you invested the time to put together a presentation. Even better that you shared your community service work here.
Education is paramount. That's for sure.

That was a great idea for you to do, Endodoc. It's true that most people aren't completely well-informed about CPs but they're still fascinated by them and even more once they find out more about them. That's how I started out. They're great plants to have even though they may be a bit more needy than other plants.
