Late to the party but I was waiting for my Drosera broomensis to recover from its long postal journey. It's a tiny plant, diameter of each leaf blade less than 2mm, less than 1/10 ". But I'm very happy to see new icky sticky on its teensy tentacles at last :D

The secret is that Photo Contests aren't really contests... they're actually a fun way to share what you're growing and engage with the community. So don't worry so much about winning and try to have fun with it ;)

Get in early. Choose great pics. I usually send my winning plant to kids I know who love them but can't afford to buy them.

It was a close race, and Carnies was almost able to close the gap, but slicric78 pulled ahead to number 1 with 15 votes.
