    Plant of the Month July 2012

    1. Only ONE (1) Plant per member may be entered in any particular month. This means one Nep vine, one Sarr Rhizome, one pygmy dew etc.
    2. All pictures must be taken in the month of entry into the contest.
    3. All entries must be clearly identified.
    4. Entries are restricted to cultivated plants.
    5. Contestants may post as many times and as many pictures of their entry as they like until contest closing on 07/30/12
    6. Sequential pictures showing opening of a pitcher, unfurling of a leaf etc. are fine as long as all pictures are taken within the month of the contest.
    7. If, for some reason, a single pitcher/plant/whatnot cannot be isolated and a group shot is necessary, then the particular pitcher/plant/whatnot entered must be clearly identified in your post.
    8. Plant must have been grown by owner at least six months prior to photo, or sprouted from seed by the owner.
    9. I didn't like this rule. You can keep entering the same thing month after month and if people still like it without getting sick of it, so be it.
    10. Times of Contest and Poll openings and closings are to be understood as EST.
    11. Judging by forum members and guests in a poll opening on 08/01/12, closing 08/05/12 and using the Condorcet Internet Voting Service (Beatpath/Schulze/CSSD completion rule). The THREE (3) most popular entries (according to "proportional representation") will be considered "Winners" and the top 3 places will be posted in http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...h-HALL-OF-FAME

    ** Please remember to clearly identify your entry!!**

    Contest will be closed on July 31st 2012 at 5:00PM EST

    Good Luck!

    Is it okay if I just post a flower pic? The plant itself didn't even look all that great and I have it pretty much packed up to give away anyway.


    Pic has the identity on the top right. . .

    Edit*

    I can get a pic of the plant if it is really needed. . .

    And yes, I know I don't have much chance of winning with this.

    Hmmm... maybe I should have held off until tomorrow morning, but... is it July 1st in your time zone yet? And I'm uh... I don't see why you wouldn't just post a flower? You might be giving yourself a disadvantage if you say, put up just one pitcher of a huge Nep vine with pitchers all over every leaf, but hey if you don't want to I don't see why not.

    It's July 1st in my time zone now, yes. Even so, I don't think a day early matters too much.

    OMG Devon, you cheating.

    Getting us addicted to your orange/red veined Drosera flower before the competition has even started.

    Unfair!!

    Beautiful though.

    Here is a youngish neppie shot to start off the month of July, from a rooted basal:
