Okay guys and gals. I ran through the Wiki and pulled out all other possibilities that would be viable possible guess's. Here is the list with still plenty of decent guess's that can be made, but guessing from this list isn't required as long as it hasn't already been guessed! First come first take! Good luck everyone!

If there's anything in this list that I missed having already been guessed, please let me know! Thanks!

I was looking at the picture again and thought, hey, I'd like to guess a few things about the picture itself!

I think you were about 8-10 feet away from the plant, and were holding the camera at eye level. I think the plant is very close to the house, maybe 2-3 feet away from the roof line and the p-stem height is about 8-10 feet.

Lmk after the contest how close I was with my guess!
