Last weekend my carni-bro Kinjie Coe and I had the honor and pleasure of visiting one of the great Nepenthes growers, Paul Barden. Over the past few years, Paul has been one of the influences in my growing of Nepenthes. I’ve learned so much from Paul and I’m forever thankful for all of the knowledge and wisdom he’s imparted to me. Paul’s blog Nitrogenseekers and his Instragram feed are simply inspirational. Visiting Paul’s place in person though – OMFG, that is another story. I was overwhelmed by all that is happening there. His garden is well beyond mind melting. It is a psychedelic kaleidoscope of carnivorous goodness where one can easily get locked into that carnivorous plant high. And yeah, for sure that carnivorous plant high is one good place to be.
Only a few highlight photos from our day are below, so be sure to view the slide show to see all of the photos from our visit. Enjoy!
Paul and Lars – thank you both so very much for your hospitality and generosity. Y’all are just too awesome. I am extremely thankful that Kinjie and I were able to experience your beautiful botanical heaven. Thank you so very much.
