The first day of every month will be Epiphyte Day... a day where people can post about orchids, bromeliads, rainforest cacti, and any other plant that grows in trees. To get everyone involved ahead of time, I'm giving you until New Years to write your blog post about your favorite tree dwelling plant friends, and I'll share all of the links on January 1st when the contest ends. I'd prefer that you write the blog posts as soon as you're able so I have time to tally your entries... and I'm excited to see what you write!
Here's how to win:
1. You will win four entries in the giveaway by sharing a post on your blog about epiphytes, linking to this post, and sharing a link in the comments. I will share links to all of your posts on January 1st in the first Epiphyte Day kickoff! You can get even more entries by doing some of the stuff listed below too...
Each of these actions also earns you an entry:
2. Leave a comment about your favorite epiphytic plant, or recommending a name for the meme.
3. Follow me on Twitter @rainforestgarden
4. Share a link to The Rainforest Garden on Twitter saying:
@rainforestgardn is giving away free epiphytes at http://www.therainforestgarden.com/ RT to enter!
5. Become a fan of The Rainforest Garden Facebook Page.
6. Share a link to The Rainforest Garden on Facebook.7. Submit my page or one of my posts to Stumbleupon.
Leave a separate comment every time you do one of these things. If you already follow me, or are a fan, it doesn't count... that way I don't enter people who don't even know about the contest! So you have more time to write up a blog post, the contest ends on January 1st, 2011 and I'll tally up the entries and randomly choose the winner in the next week. Rules and regulations are below.
1. Winner must be in the continental United States to receive plants. If you are outside of the continental United States, I'll send you a copy of "Bromeliads for the Contemporary Garden" instead. It's a great book too!
2. If I draw your name, I will verify that you completed one of the actions. So no faking.
3. To ensure survival of the plants, I will not ship tropical plants through cold weather and reserve the right to postpone delivery until I feel its safe to send the tender plants.
4. Plants will be well packed and sent in good health, but I make no guarantees after they ship.
5. Oh yeah, no one in my family can win. Sorry sis, I'll bring you plants anyways, so no need to enter.
