    Plant of the Month June 2013

    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 06/30/13
    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 07/01/13, closing 07/05/13 and using this forum in this thread! Voting will appear at the top of the thread at the close of the contest entries.

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

    Contest will be closed on June 30th 2013 at 5:00PM EST

    Good Luck!

    Looks like I'll start the parade

    U. humboldtii - this species has not wanted to flower for me in the basement under lights, so last year I took one of the clones (SG from this giveaway in 2008) and stuck it on the east-facing windowsill in my office. As a gift to me, it apparently liked something about the new location and decided to flower. The first stalk was a month or so ago and this pic is from the 2nd stalk - as of today.

    This is another of the utrics in section Orchidioides - but it was originally in section Iperua before the two were combined. Although it will grow on wet ground, it likes to grow in the water-filled urns of bromeliads. It's leaves are very interesting as they are shaped like paddles - one of my clones has leaves ~18-20" tall & 3" wide - & I suspect that they get even larger.

    For those getting sick of the onslaught of utric flowers, this will probably be it for some time .....
    All the best,
    Ron

    Since utrics seem to always win this shindig.. I decided to drag my U. nelumbifolia out of the GH for a few pics.
