    Plant of the Month November 2014

    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 11/30/14
    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 12/01/14, closing 12/05/14 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 November 30th 2014 at 5:00PM EST

    Good Luck!

    Because the whole hybrid vs species question concerning N. platychila hasn't really been resolved satisfactorily. Not sure if you're aware of the cross breeding that EP did http://pitcherplants.proboards.com/t...hila-revisited. I spoke to Chi'en briefly about it at the ICPS meet earlier this year and his opinion seems to have shifted a bit now towards acknowledging the possibility of a hybrid swarm involving hose mtn fusca and there's also the case that there's veitchii in the mix too. So this diverges from the natural variation argument to a degree. More recently the photos Jeremiah posted on facebook of N. platy from the Hose Mtn trip looked hybrid-ish and don't really fit the description, which is not likely to change any time soon. Hence the X before the name
