    Thank you all for your interest! If you haven't yet, please PM me your address and I'll respond with my email address so you can paypal me the shipping cost (if you don't do paypal, I will gladly accept either a check or some other form of payment in kind )

    For those of you that missed the offer - at the rate this stuff grows I'll have enough to do another Utric giveaway in just a few months!

    Hello lucky Utric winners - I just exchanged this info in a PM with one of the benefactors of this giveaway, so I figured I'd share it with all of you for reference as you figure out how to introduce the plant to your collection:

    The conditions I had these utrics in were more or less lowland conditions in my grow rack: usually between 78 and 95 during the day and 68 and 75 at night, depending on the weather outside, with the odd spike above and below that range here and there. Humidity is always above 55%; I try to keep it in the high 60s. I water using the tray method... Fill up to 1.5" deep, let evaporate, repeat.

    For the most part I grow this plant about 6" below 4 T8 lights, and it's planted in what feels like peat/sand with more sand than peat... Maybe 60/40? But I took a plug of this stuff and put it in pure LFS in an undrained container and grew it sort of like an aquatic plant, completely flooding it often. That pot was closer to 10" below my lights. In both cases, the plant grew vigorously but never flowered.
    If any of you are able to get this plant to flower, I would love to see a pic!

    I have had it twice in my life growing very similar to what you described, but it flowered like crazy.

    Alright - 4 of the 5 plants are packed up and ready to go. I'll ship those out tomorrow.

    If you're one of the four who has exchanged PMs with me, you should have your plants by Saturday!

    If you're the person who has not PMed me yet, I don't have your address so I can't ship your Utrics! Please respond by the end of this week or I'll have to give this plant to the next interested party. Unfortunately I've already divided them so I need to ship them out sooner rather than later!

    Thanks for playing, everyone. Please do post up once you receive your plant!
