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.

6. Sequential pictures showing opening of a pitcher are fine as long as all pictures are taken within the month of the contest.
7. If, for some reason, a single pitcher cannot be isolated and a group shot is necessary, then the particular pitcher entered must be clearly identified in your post.
8. Plant must have been grown by owner at least six months prior to photo.

Might as well kick this off. Winter's well and truly over, and my N. burbidgeae x robcantleyi seems to be making up for lost time. This is double the size of its last pitcher, will probably update as the colouration on the peristome improves:

Previous pictures shown here, although the first one is ineligible since it was taken in late November. Nice to see the progression though.

Hah!

You sure there isn't a coconut tree somewhere in that parentage?

Haha, with that "pitcher," who knows? Honestly, I've got it on a windowsill with some of my hardier neps, so sometimes temps and humidity are less than ideal. Plus, it shot out a really vigorous basal over the summer, so I suspect between throwing all of its energy into that, plus now being a tad cramped in the pot, it just didn't feel like expending the energy to make a proper pitcher. Hope it does soon though, as silly as this is, it's normal pitchers are some of my favorites.
