How is it the New Year!!!? Hopefully this one goes better than last!

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 01/31/21
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 02/01/21, closing 02/05/21 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 1st 2021 at 5:00PM EST

Good Luck!

I was out in my garage today and noticed fresh new growth on my Sarracenia x Maroon, even with a coating of ice on the water tray. Temperatures at night have been down to 20F or so, goes up to low 40's in the day. I bought this plant in the spring of 2018 from a nursery in NJ called Rare Find. I think it was in a 4" pot then. I've been told by others recently that their selection of CP is next to nothing now.
