    You were not meant to be the brunt of this. And as you say it has been counter productive. But say what you mean mean what you say.

    Alright, I stayed out of this when I saw it today at work because I thought it would work itself out since clear points had been made like:

    Any others. Also, I have to admit that I LOVED the banter between kulamauiman and RL7836 and his rant on the blurry photo! I see nothing wrong with a pitcher, a flower, a tendril loop, a bladder trap WHATEVER being entered... If you don't like the entry, don't vote for it. I believe the goal of this to start was to encourage people to take and share pictures. I love the artistic creativity people have with the photos they take since I seem to completely lack it.

    I would vote for the P. laueana flower or U. nepyrophylla x . reniformis flower over the other entries (at this point) as my favorite plant. If either were in my collection right now, the things being shared the these photos are what I would be looking at when I walked out to the greenhouse.

    All that said, I would like to put in my entry.

    Taken today, U. alpina x endresii under growth. It is what I saw earlier when I was working in the greenhouse, it is what interested me at the time, it is what I took a picture of, it is what I am sharing with you all now. =)

The not-quite-vertical apparition on the right continues the lack-of-focus theme and adds a touch of tension to the submission.

    Pure genius.
    THIS was pure genius.

    I feel like I'm back in art school.
    How come I didn't get this kind of response to the dead Nepenthes pitcher a few month ago? That was a thing of pure beauty.

    You do realize it is only called "Plant" of the Month because it isn't restricted to any one Genus or Family. Nor is it restricted to Carnivorous Plants. People are free to post pictures of their orchids, succulents, peppers, hosta lawn grass or what have you. Just as long as it conforms to the rules.
