    Plant of the Month December 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 12/31/15
    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 01/01/16, closing 01/05/16 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 2015 at 5:00PM EST

    Good Luck!

    Wow. Month's about 1/2 over and nary an entry. Guess have to try and get the ball rolling ...

    Can't recall from whom I received this from this past spring. Has about doubled in size ... now about the size of a nickel. heh Photo taken through a magnifying glass.

    @DragonsEye: Very attractive plant and shot, but are you pretty confident about the ID? It's a pretty variable species it seems, but even my young plants have really thick upturned leaf margins. They also color up very red, and that appears to be purple.

    A future cultivar that is currently lacking a suitable name, and the current one is a mouthful
    D. anglica Alakai Swamp, HI x spatulata ('Tamlin' x "Royal, Natl. Pk. Sydney") "Pink Flower Clone" by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    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.

    All I can say is that it was sent to me as such. The color was/is more purply but -- as a possible caveat -- I did take the photo under fluorescent lighting. With African violets, I know this can make a marked difference in how the color appears....
