    Plant of the Month December 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 12/31/13
    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 01/01/14, closing 01/05/14 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 December 31st 2013 at 5:00PM EST

    Good Luck!

    Nice plant! Gives me something to look forward to when my two seedlings get to size!
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    I've got a couple flowering tomentosas here as well. But my plants are probably about a 3rd the size of yours. I didn't even know they got that big!
    Quite the beast you've got there my friend.
    WELL THEN.. I WAS going to enter a D. hilaris this month, but since I got it from Mark.. it just doesn't feel right. Going up against him, with a plant I got from him seems like borderline cheating.. At any rate, here's an update pic for you Mark. They're doing swimmingly: http://i1140.photobucket.com/albums/...ps41b67615.jpg
    As for my entry this month, think I'll enter a plant that Mark got from me!
    D. villosa (Serra de Ibitipoca, South East of Minas Gerais, SE Brazil) (front most plant)
