I finally made it there today (Sunday), after originally planning on Friday. Both "jurow" and Drew had beautiful plants for sale and in the displays, and both locations were very popular with visitors. I had to leave when some loud drumming became unbearable.
Here's "jurow's" display:
I just wanted to resurrect this thread to mention that this show is happening again on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Fort Mason in San Francisco. It's primarily an Orchid show, but it looks like carnivorous plants will again be well represented, judging by the list of vendors.

Epipactis helleborine. I understand this is a non-native plant, and considered a weed. Still, it was a pleasant surprise for me to see it, growing in my fence.
Pictures are terrible but you can get an idea of what it looks like. I figured I'd leave the spider webs for the photos.
That's funny, I always describe it as exactly like Lemon Pledge. Regardless, is probably the same artificial lemon scent. It is a pleasant scent coming from the flower.
Not all A. giganteas have the scent, one reason I'm really happy with this clone. I do have seedlings of A. gigantea...
I'm hoping A. chilensis will start making seeds. Unfortunately the first flower fell off without, but there are 3 more buds. I've asked around and people seem to think it's self fertile. Whether it's self-pollinating is a different story, as Aristolochias typically have receptive stigmas...
