    Plant of the Month November 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 11/30/20
    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 12/01/20, closing 12/05/20 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 November 30th 2020 at 5:00PM EST

    Good Luck!

    Since Thez said I needed to post to the POTM but didn't have the chance to last month, I figured I'd start this one.

    So without further ado I present Drosera hartmeyerorum. (click on image for larger view)

    I've had a number of hart.s over the years, but this is the darkest red I can recall having. Also seemed to produce more trichomes than many.

    A worthy opponent! And a species I still cannot get to survive past a quarter inch tall...

    Certainly bigger and better than I have ever managed with this species. Nicely done.

    I hereby pledge to bring you some competition this month.

    Drosera 'Watari'





    This plant is said to be the hybrid Drosera (linearis x rotundifolia) x spatulata. It is not really rare but not often seen, just the same. A pleasing thing to grow. The second photo shows the exact plant I am entering into the competition.

    They call the maternal parent "linearis x spatulata" because that's what D. anglica originated from. It's anglica x spatulata.

    Does the photo have to be of a CP? Can it be of related bog plants? I just took a bunch of photos on 10/31/20. Have to wait till Saturday to get some more shots.
