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 03/31/23
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.

Good Luck!
Philodendron 'Pink Princess.'

This plant is one of about 20 that I got from 25 leafless single node cuttings derived from the ugly cutting in the third photo. I started them on 4/1/2022 on sphagnum, and transferred them to soil when they showed root and shoot growth.

This plant is one of a group of 8 just transitioned from cramped terrarium conditions. A few months ago I did a different set of 8. Those are now larger and/or no longer here.

I just got a new ~30 node cutting yesterday, so I'm starting a whole new set.

This was chopped up into 25 leafless single node cuttings on 4/1/2022 and they were incubated on moist sphagnum under lights, giving rise to about 20 plants:
