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 02/28/13
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 03/01/13, closing 03/05/13 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 February 28th 2013 at 5:00PM EST

Good Luck!

I figured I would give it a go. Last month I had quite a few sarrs that still looked well but it seems they finally decided to cut that out. This picture was taken on the 10th; I thought I would have gotten outside to take a better shot by now...maybe tomorrow! Haha.

'Dente' - I especially like the leaf closes to the viewer.

Great pic! I love the detail. I see you took this one out of dormancy did you take all of your vfts (and sars) out of dormancy recently?

Thanks! All of my plants are outside, all year (except for some sarr seedlings which will move out in spring and stay out).
