Try the carnivorous plant mailing list. Send mail to
listserv at opus.hpl.hp.com, putting in the message the line:
subscribe CP Your name
You might also put 'help' on another line, for the listserv help.
The same listserv also runs a list called CACTI_ETC.
The people on these lists must know most of what there is to know
on these subjects. There is also a Web site associated with the CP
