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 04/30/21
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 05/01/21, closing 05/05/21 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 April 30th 2021 at 5:00PM EST

Good Luck!

Not insectivorous, likes wet feet though. Should be able to flower for us before month's end.

Have toyed, at times, with getting one of these, but believe it would take up too much real estate in my apt

It is low light plant sized similarly to a bird of paradise, but without the height. Leaves do get some size. I overwinter it indoors, but you can let it go dormant (not cold hardy) to save space. Lost of differing info on soil moisture. I grow using tray method water to 1in when the tray is dry (a few times a week). I have a larger Potted plant with 7ish individual plants. It forms a large bush each plant having a flower cluster. In summer plants are watered every day and sit in trays.

This very Tacca almost died a few years back when took a week out of town in summer. At the time I was using a pebble tray method, and not letting it sit in water.
