FOTGH is planning to host an Open Greenhouse for students, staff, faculty, and the public on Sept. 23 from noon until 5 PM. FOTGH members will act as docents and lead tours through the three rooms of the teaching collection offering information about some of the most interesting plants to be found there.

Other activities to be going on in conjunction with the Open Greenhouse will be a Pineapple Tasting. (Yes, another fruit is ripening as I type.)

And a Venus Flytrap Feeding -like the Lion Feedings that used to be held at the SF Zoo, but a lot safer for all involved!

Traps big enough to nibble a thumb!

Flies are preferred, of course.

These plants will snap at anything!

You are invited to come and enjoy the day of the event, or to contact FOTGH to find out about volunteering to help in the preparations for this event.

    Many Thanks for your positive comment. It’s been a while since I’ve managed the time for an update and the plants here just keep getting ahead of me! I hope to post something soon with the new semester, but we may be moving more to ubiquitous Face Book in future.

    Sincerely,

    Martin Grantham SFSU Bio. Dept. GH
