    Plant of the Month January 2020

    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 1/31/20
    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 02/01/20, closing 02/05/20 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 January 31st 2020 at 5:00PM EST

    Good Luck!

    Drosera brevicornis



    While not the wooliest of the Petiolaris sundews Drosera brevicornis still lives up to the name.

    Well it appears BM got the jump on me. Had thought to be the one to get this thread rolling. Come on folks! Let's start off the new year right with some good photos!

    Here's Ping Gina. First a couple shots of the flowers....

    -- The flower in the lower right is the youngest. The one upper left is the oldest. (The dark magenta ones are from a moranensis that insisted on being in the photo.)

    Gina is a big girl as can be seen here. (Roughly 6.75 inches across ... maybe a tad more but not quite 7 inches.)

    (Btw, leaves in the lower part of the photo were/are not cut off. They had simply wrapped tightly down around the pot.)

    This shot shows her color better. Also she had quickly colored up a bit more after moving her over a couple inches on the plant stand.

    Actually, I am late for the December contest. And I agree - come on, TF ers! Show us your very best plants in photos. I know there are some amazing examples out there as we have never lacked for talented growers.

    Geeze bluemax, so pushy! :-p (thanks for the reminder)

    This fellah has slowed down it seems here in winter, but it has a flower coming... so that's good enough for me! (Won from Zuzana in last year's NASC auction)
