Dear competitors, the time is here to decide the winner for this competition.
The winner will receive a cutting of Nepenthes mirrabilis varigated.

Please post pictures of your plant and provide the measurements.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How we compete.

We judge by a point system. The best plant of the category receives the most points.
If anyone manage to flower the plantlet within 6 mtns, you will be crown the winner, almost instantly....haha, it will not happen i hope...

The categories
1. Thickness of the stem
2. Height of the plant
3. Leaf span of the plant
4. Tuber diameter. (last option)

Whoever scores the most points wins the competition and receives the price.

Hi amos,
thanks so much for organizing this competition and providing the Amorph seedlings also.
So sorry my plant is dormant now. So cant give height and stem thickness measurements, but here is the pic of the opening of the last leaf before it went into dormancy.

Seems like Lam manage to grow it really well. Wondering if anyone else manage to keep the seedling alive.

Lam, great job, never knew the seedling could grow that big. You might just be the winner.
