    Nope, it can be any plant you want! We had a non-cp last month in fact. It has been nice so far having an 'everyone has great sundews' month this month though because usually the focus is on the bigger plants like Helis and Neps.

    How's this? Since you all are on Sundews, how about three? But that breaks the rules. And I took it in October.

    What are the size limits for uploading photos? I tried some that are 2 MB and they didn't upload. The above one was about 450 KB on my computer and uploaded about 60 KB.

    I don't think it meets the requirements of the contest, but I love the photo you posted. Very nice! I guess you could designate a single seed as your plant?

    As for posting photos, you might find this useful:How to Embed Photos in Your Posts and where to host them. Most of us use an external photo-sharing service. I'm currently using ImgBB here: https://imgbb.com/ It's free.

    Mark, it was a joke really. I don't have many photos taken in November. Hope it is not raining on Saturday, although it is calling for rain. Most of my plants are preparing for their winter rest.

    But if you want a single seed? Here is Drosera intermedia, scale bar is correct: 0.10 mm.

    Yeah I think the spirit of the competition is an already growing plant because I don't think a seed technically counts as a plant yet.

    The forum will adjust sizes to minimize load/hdd space of images. To help keep bandwidth down, large files are not allowed to upload even though they will be downsized, it's still a lot of MB into the server. I believe 2mb is the cut off for a upload. I don't think that's per photo though, so you can't upload 3 1mb files at the same time for example. Hope that helps!

    Thank you Andrew. I used to use Photobucket when it was free, as I'm sure a lot of you did too. I think I have tried ImgBB as suggested. I just forget about it, since I don't use it much. I used to use Photobucket a lot when Forums were really active. Facebook has really taken over. Don't like it as much as Forums. Your thread gets buried so quickly.
