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 02/28/14
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 03/01/14, closing 03/05/14 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 February 28th 2014 at 5:00PM EST

Ace: nice ping!

I like the tiny drosera growing next to your ehlersiae :)
Thanks its a d.roseana i threw some gemmae in random pots I only noticed it when I took the pic because it was so tiny
I received this N. eymae x ephippiata on 9/26/2011 from Tony Paroubek. This is a classic example of how terrarium growing can create "bonsai" Nepenthes.

I'd say that in the resulting two years and four months that followed my receiving this plant from Tony it maybe doubled in overall rosette diameter. While scanning the web and watching other people's plants grow during the same period of time, theirs have become beasts by now.

Here the plant is, finally in ideal growing conditions and after its first legitimate fertilizing since I received it.

N. clipeata x (clipeata x eymae)
