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 04/30/14
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 05/01/14, closing 05/05/14 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 April 30th 2014 at 5:00PM EST

Good Luck!

Tendrils are starting to twist more. My entry also should get points for being a "First Bloom Seedling":water:

Very nice dark nectar spoon.

How tall is your tallest pitcher?

Great plant, well done.

Thank you Maiden. That means a lot coming from you..
Maybe someday I'll put more care into my photography and make you proud.
The tallest pitcher shown is like 4 or 5 inches tall. Still a long ways to go before it's actually worthy of placing here..

Why not? S. oreophila - main growth point

If the big pitcher opens this month I'll post an update.

Well, I guess I'll enter this N. amp., since it started pitchering so nicely

With the stiff competition this month, I was really hoping my campby would hold off for a few more days - but it didn't ....
