1. Only ONE (1) PITCHER per member may be entered in any particular month.
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 07/31/16
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.
9. Times of Contest and Poll openings and closings are to be understood as EST.
10. Judging by forum members and guests in a poll opening on 08/01/16, closing 08/05/16 and using this forum! Voting will open on top of the thread at the close of the contest submissions.

** Please remember to clearly identify your entry!!**

Contest will be closed on July 31st 2016 at 5:00PM EST
Good luck!!

Here is my N. singalana x red hairy hamata, BE 3487.
Got it from Tony P. a long time ago. Finally starting to pitcher again!

Seems like a very interesting cross. The hamata influence comes through very clearly. What attributes of singalana come through the most strongly in this plant?

Well as far as looks I think its a pretty good blend of the two although the color is from the hamata.
I believe it is much more heat tolerant than the red hairy hamata.
Cuttings, once rooted grow fast. Goes right into vine mode.
