This month is all about our collections. Some of them are small, only one or two plants. Others have extensive setups with hundred or even thousands of plants. Small or large, we want to see your collection. Understandably, fitting your entire collection into one photograph may not be possible. For this contest, you may submit up to 4 pictures of your collections. Additionally, those photos may be collages.

The prize this month is a flytrap you don’t often hear much about. It is a WIP Slim Snapper.

From the Flytrapstore.com website:
Wowza, this one can grow some big traps! WIP Slim Snapper can produce some big ol' traps, that sit atop uniquely long slender leaves, making the traps appear even larger than they are. WIP Slim Snapper was chosen as superior from among thousands of other Venus Fly Traps grown on Bob Hanrahan's "WIP" carnivorous plant plantation in Georgia, because of its impressive vigor and unique loooong leaves. WIP Slim is a long and lanky cool drink of water.
As always, thank you to @Matt and Leah for providing this month's prize.

So here are the rules:
1. They must be your own pictures.
2. You can submit up to 4 photos for this contest.
3. Pictures shared in previous contests are not eligible.
4. Minimally edited photos only. No effects, or filters. Cropping is okay and you can put them in a collage photo.
5. The winner will be the entry with the highest number of thumbs UP (likes) votes.
6. Only votes from members with at least 5 posts will count.
7. This contest is open internationally, although there will be an alternate prizes for international winners.

So go ahead and show us your beauties!

I was chewing on what to submit, so I went with what I thought was cool.

A few growing seasons ago I had a DC-XL show false vivapary. I let it grow, and it became massive. When i cut the stock, it gave me 30+ little DC-XLs that all grew into their own plants.

So for my submission for a collection, I choose to submit a single plant that became a collection all to its own!

Cheers.

This is most of my outdoor collection. I've got to find space out here for 7 more 1020 trays of young plants that are hardening off.
