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 08/31/14
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 09/01/14, closing 09/05/14 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 August 31st 2014 at 5:00PM EST

Good Luck!
Drosera burmannii, Humpty Doo, NT, Australia

Those are some cute little pom-poms.
Gorgeous colors! I have plants of the same locality, but mine stay mostly green since I feed them every couple weeks.


See, that's almost unfair. Those N. ventricosa pitchers are totally gorgeous.

Thanks guys! My D. burmannii Humpty Doo are some of my prized plants.
Genlisea aurea

Think I'm going to enter my little Drosera intermedia for this one.
I grew this from seeds labeled "Blanket Flower" (Gaillardia ?).

Ceph cutting

I really like the coloring it's getting, it's ~5-6 months old.

This plant is one of my best performers and always loaded with the most beautiful pitchers - N. eymae X jacquelineae:
