My collection looks bad this year :| I had some beauties last year, so hopefully they’ll look like that again next month. Bought a ton of cultivars this year.

Newbie in Missouri late to the party. Here in the Midwest our Spring has been less than ideal with only a few really nice days between cold heavy rain, outright storms with tornados and being mostly cloudy all of the time, I can actually get a higher par under the lights which I know is not ideal, but I think they can maybe extend the growing period. My first plants were purchased in early October 2021, and they got thru the dormancy period with a little beginner's luck as I habitually over watered the plants. My collection" has grown thanks to the FTS and some knowledgeable forum members.

I have to apologize, I did not do a good job of doing updates for May's contest. It's been a pretty hectic month. It was a close race this month, but @slicric78 beat a run-off with Carnies and Nocturne at the last minute. Congratulations. PM me for details on claiming your prize.

June's contest will be coming up soon. So you can start thinking about your entry, the topic will be Venus Flytrap 'typical'. Be sure to get your entry in early for your best chance of winning.
