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 10/31/12 (Halloween!!)
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 11/01/12, closing 11/05/12 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 October 31st 2012 at 5:00PM EST

Good Luck!
Here is my entry*


My Judith Hindle putting its best color right before going nite nite :)


The whole Plant :)
Looking pretty good for a change... my pings usually look like they're hating life but these Pinguicula moranensis look pretty good for a change! I'm entering the one on the right even though they're technically the same plant.
This is one of my earliest Nepenthes purchases; one o' them Poi Dogs. It is likely a maxima hybrid, and because it makes a thick tangle of pitchers below the foliage, it is still one of my favorites. The pitchers you see here average about 11" tall each, to give you an idea how big this plant is.
Beautiful nep, Whim.

I'm quite proud of this pic, and I love this species, so here is D. scorpioides (Albany)
you make the best pics DB.
thanks for the new desktop background.
Very nice pic indeed Devon!
Very impressive start to the month everyone! :hail:
I think I can find a better entry..

Thanks Jon! No effects added. I used the light painting technique.

@Mass: That's the biggest & craziest capensis I've seen! Definitely suites its name.

I'm honoured! :-D
