    Plant of the Month October 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 10/31/20
    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 11/01/20, closing 11/05/20 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 October 31 2020 at 5:00PM EST

    Good Luck!

    Yeah it's been rough around here lately.

    So what exactly am I looking at. It must be a good one otherwise you wouldn't be growing it but I've never see anything like it before.

    I've got a ton of seedlings, but they pretty much all just look like seedlings.

    Nice flowers, Hawken. How large does the plant typically get?

    A newly opened S x readii pitcher. It can get very dark purple when the pitcher ages.

    Photos are about as big as they get; inflorescence is about a foot tall, false stem and leaves get maybe slightly taller.
