    Plant of the Month November 2015

    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 11/30/15
    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 12/01/15, closing 12/05/15 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 2015 at 5:00PM EST

    Good Luck!

    I've got a different entry from last time that I'll add. But it will probably be around the end of the month for better color.

    Hmm, yes, seems like a lean month. Must needs do something to help alleviate that problem.

    Those pygmies are adorable, btw, Tacks.

    Well here's something non-cp'ish to share with you. A lovely little thing but also, unfortunately, rather ephemeral. The mother plant (a Cryptanthus) has generated an albino pup. This pink pup is doomed to die at an early age as it is almost completely lacking in chlorophyll. It will survive for a time as long as the mother plant continues to feed it. But, based on past experience, long before it reaches maturity the nutrient flow from the mother plant will dwindle/become insufficient to maintain its life processes and it will die. Pity. The high degree of pink makes it a colorful addition to the terr.
