    Myrmecodia sp. Fruit/Seed Givaway

    I've got 4 ripe Myrmecodia sp. fruit to giveaway. There's usually between 2 and 4 seeds in each fruit. These have an extremely short shelf life and germinate FAST ! It's not uncommon to get germination under 24 hours after sowing. Shipping is on me for these. Must be a US resident. You also must post a photo of the ugliest plant you've ever grown. Bad clones, ugly hybrids, warped by cramped or inadequate conditions, neglected, forgotten about, left for dead or just naturally UGLY. The plant must have been grown by you at some point in time and does not have to be of the carnivorous persuasion. I'll choose 2 winners for 2 fruit each a week from today (7/1/15).


    Parent plant for reference.

    Lol what a great contest. You may win yourself with that ugly pic. I currently have 1 myrmecodia tuberosa seedling from Randy so I may enter your competition after others get a chance.

    Thanks

    What an awesome contest! This is a really tough one cause I feel like no plant is truly ugly in the right angle! Regardless, I do have an entry



    Her better side hehe


    N. Miranda upper that popped with a deformed peristome. I am not sure how that happened for that plant was pretty established.

    Does ugly in death (or just very sad) count?

    Here's the "after" plant of an Alluaudia procera which was a good deal at Home Depot. I really like these when grown in the ground, and I was thinking of persuading someone to do that. The December deluge here (half a year's worth of rain in a couple days) and probably too much shade rotted the plant.



    Here's what it looked like when purchased:



    And here's a link to someone's photo of a mature plant in the ground. Apparently it's in Balboa Park, San Diego:
