Halloween Themed Giveaway

This is my first ever Giveaway so please advise if I do something incorrect. I just placed an order at https://www.flytrapking.com/collections ... a-seed-mix

I bought #53, #57 and #62. I will be lucky to use even half of these so I am going to do one giveaway per seed pack which will have roughly 75-100 seeds.

With Halloween creeping up on us, let's use that as a theme and all users can vote. Winners will be those with the most votes as of Oct.15th, 2023.

I want to see pics. In case you do not notice, I am in to COLOR. Lots and lots of color. Post your most colorful Halloween themed plants, plants and animals or ??? Sorry, no babies. I have enough of those ones. :D :D :D

I will pay to ship seeds to the top 3 winners.

EDIT: Open to all U.S. Forum members

Good luck and post them pics.

I'll start it off...I took this picture of a red eyed tree frog in the jungles of Arenal Costa Rica 🐸 He was quite a colorful sight and rare to see as they spend most of their time in the upper tree canopy...only coming down to breed once a year!

The only thing I would suggest is to specify if it's open to everyone, or US addresses only.

Preferably but not necessary. If it will catch ones interest then go ahead and post.

Giveaway being canceled due to lack of interest. Maybe I will just grow the seedlings and then give them away.

Don't give up. Giveaways and photo contests can be tough. You can do a simple sign up giveaway and I'm sure you would have more participation. Look in the giveaway forum and you can see some previous giveaway ideaa.

nooo it's a good prize and a good prompt, but the wrong time of year. i was walking around the yard looking for something to photograph, but my pumpkins, corn, and eastern redbuds are all still green :\

I’d have to agree. Good idea and good prize. But, while retail stores have had stuff up for a month or more already :roll:, homes in my area are just starting to decorate, and trees are in the early stages of color change. For a Halloween giveaway, you’d probably be better off having said giveaway end near the end of October….perhaps even on Halloween.
