    Hey everyone. Well, I've decided to create an Utricularia bowl, composed of U. livida, U. sandersonii, and U. subulata. ( I wanna create a mass flowering) I think that U. subulata is a bit of a weed, and I was wondering if anyone could spare a small clump? I'm not sure if I have anything you may want, but the only thing I can spare is seeds. Check my growlist to see the seeds I have. And also, will U. subulata take over my other Utrics if they're in the same bowl, or will they just 'intertwine'?

    Many thanks,
    -Ben

    Ben, they're ALL weeds! U. subulata is the biggest weed of them all. I would keep subulata separate - and far away from any other cp's you have.

    It's okay to say that! Hey, I tell people that my favorite flower is the pansy, followed by morning glories/moonflowers, and johnny jumpups. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Oh, you'll have a weed garden alright. But if you let U. subulata loose with the others, it'll probably be all you'll have left after it takes over. Otherwise I think it's a great idea; I've started turning Utrics loose in all my new pots just because they're such an easy, nice addition. I have a tray of U. tricolor and D. capensis that is awesome in bloom. Best luck!

    But seriously, does anyone have any weedy subulatas that they might want to give away? I am thinkin of containing it in a small round fish bowl thing that'll fit in my terrarium.

    Say, seedjar, do you have any pics of your cape dew and U. tricolor in bloom?

    I have a few Utrics, including U. subulata, and I have found that U. gibba is a bigger "weed". U. gibba has gotten into almost very single pot and water tray I have. It does not seem to care where it grows. It even tried to move in with a cactus this summer! U. subulata seems more selective. It moves around but not like U. gibba.

    But I don't care. I love them all. It's great coming out in the morning to check on things and finding yet another pot or tray brimming with cheery yellow flowers. I makes the world seem so much more...hopeful!

    BECAUSE I LOVE FLOWERS!

    If you want a mixed Utric bowl Drosera36, then do it! See what happens. I had U. livida and U. subulata move into the same pot as did U. gibba and U. subulata this past summer and both couples are doing fine so far.

    One thing though, I would start a separate pot of each Utric and keep it that way. After they get going good, then take a plug from each of those and create the mixed bowl. That way if one does win out, you still have the individual pots of each. Plus if you want to trade at some point, you will know what specific species you have to trade. Just a thought.

    Oh if want some weedy Utrics, I have a couple I can offer I think. PM me.
