Ed. Read's famous PINGUICULA collection

(By Ed. Read)

 

 

I live in the Los Angeles area only 5 minutes by car from the beach and LAX international airport.

 

Ed. Read posing in front of a cluster of Pinguicula moranensis var. neovolcanica in the national Park Iztlaccihuatl Popocatepetl.

 

Here I enjoy a Mediterranean climate and humid air from the Pacific Ocean.

 

I have a humble collection that gives me great joy (See also the article of what Ed. call his "humble" collection ! - Note of the Editor -).

 

I am very interested in the taxonomy of Pinguicula and also collect papers and books regarding them.

 

I sell and trade plants at the Los Angeles Carnivorous Plant Society meetings and via mail.
