    The only problem with this idea is in this forum, people have personalities .
    I'd have to agree about the "pitcher/picture from this month" rule though. If the pitcher has to open within the month, there will always be a lag in entries as people will always have to wait for something nice to open. If you're really unlucky, your best plant opens a pitcher every month at the end of the month, then you can't enter a mature pitcher from that plant in the contest!

    But anyway, here's my pitcher entry, taken and opened this month:
    N. 'sabre'

    Guys, I think the rules are pretty simple and it is to fair, because No, maybe you wont grow a nice beautiful pitcher every month or have it darken, but that's just the thing: Maybe next month you will. I for one, do have a pitcher which just opened two days ago and will color in nicely before September is over. However, in October I wont have a good candidate!

    It all works itself out. Fun idea.

    It's supposed to be the pitcher of the month, not month old pitcher of the month!
    Requiring the pitcher to have opened in the same month as the photo eliminates experienced
    growers finest achievements. This is a very poor representation of our hobby. What would cp books be like if we took out the adult plants?

    This contest should be an awesome visual explanation of what can be achieved when properly growing these plants, the truest inspiration to the new.

    To keep it fair it shouldn't be an old photo of some pitcher long since gone to dust. But still why not be able to re-enter that one that didn't win when it finally gets it's color, etc.?
    Good growing, Jack

    You dont really need to be rude about it
    So fine, pitchers from LAST month are allowed
    i dont want older pitchers in it because i want it to be up in the air for the new kids too jack
    if its really a big issue ill gladly close the thread and donate the seeds to the ICPS
    Edit:
    Jack i noticed you edited your post, thankyou for removing the rather crude context from that.

    SK I'm so sorry. I was trying to be humorous, not to be rude to anyone.
    I think the new should have a chance too. Not all of them see the photos off the other forums.
    It's not a big issue and I think you're onto a good thing.
    Sorry again. Please continue.

    P.S. You know, it would completely set the photo contest apart if it actually was the month old pitcher month contest!
    Good growing, Jack

    Hey guys,

    I donít see what the big fuss is about, Kris started the contest and is even providing a prize for the winner, if he decided to be eligible you had take to the photo on Saturday the 19th at 2:59pm to enter the contest youíd do it. If you canít follow the rules just donít enter.


    Here are a few photos of one of my N. hamata upper pitchers that I took today that opened just under a week ago.








    Thanks for the contest Kris and I would love to see it catch on here at TF.
