    Utric hybrid giveaway (for postage)

    In my ongoing effort to clean up as well as free up some space, I realized that I have two utric hybrids that have not been adequately shared.

    - U. nephrophylla x U. nelumbifolia
    - U. nephrophylla x U. reniformis f. courte

    These are crosses I've made in the past 2 years. The flowers for both are similar with some subtle variation. In my conditions, the nelumbifolia hybrid has been extremely floriforous (I basically have flowers all the time) & blooms are produced on extremely long stems (one was 43"). The reniformis hybrid blooms are carried on shorter stems & flower a few times per year. The leaves for both tend toward U. reniformis shape (with more variation seen in the reniformis hybrid).

    I currently grow the nelumbifolia hybrid in live LFS as it hasn't done well for me in peat mixes (seeds from my 1st attempted cross all germinated then died in a peat mix). The reniformis hybrid plants are currently growing in an airy peat-based media (I've not done head-to-head media testing with them).

    Based on Bob's photofinder (& my cursory forum observations), it would appear that these hybrids may be unique within the USA at this time. The nelumbifolia cross has been made by a few others (in Europe & Brazil) but I have yet to see evidence of the reniformis cross anywhere (which is somewhat surprising to me).

    Qualifications for giveaway:
    - experience successfully growing section Iperua/Orchidioides (at this stage, it doesn't seem to make sense for these to go to people still figuring out how to grow).
    - willingness to periodically share divisions (freely or via fleabay, etc)
    - willingness to periodically share pics & experiences (what works, what doesn't, etc)
    - reimburse postage (both should fit in small flat rate box ~$6 iirc)
    - attribution - basically share where you got them if asked & don't take credit for the cross
    - USA only

    If interested, add your TF handle to the standard sequential list (start one below). I'll PM those selected & close the offer once my supply has been adequately depleted.

    U. nephrophylla x U. nelumbifolia


    U. nephrophylla x U. reniformis


    Thanks for playing
    All the best,
    Ron

    3. hcarlton-just starting with these kinds of Utrics, but so far doing very well with them. I'd love to try a hybrid or two, this is a great point to start!

    4. NatchGreyes - I'd be happy to give away some others of this type, and these - once they grow out. From this section, I have a few of the more common plants, which are all doing well.

    Beautiful flowers and photography... and that's not flattery! I did a quick search as to what was considered Iperua/Orchidioides

    Utricularia section Orchidioides
    Species Range Habit1
    U. alpina2 Antilles, n South America T/E
    U. asplundii2 Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela T/E
    U. buntingiana2 n Venezuela E
    U. campbelliana2 Venezuela, Guyana (& n Brazil?) E
    U. cornigera Brazil T/EA
    U. endresii2 Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador E
    U. geminiloba2 Brazil T/L
    U. humboldtii Venezuela, Guyana, n Brazil E/EA
    U. jamesoniana2 Central America, Antilles, South America E
    U. nelumbifolia Brazil E/EA
    U. nephrophylla Brazil T/L/EA
    U. praetermissa2 Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama T/E
    U. quelchii2 Venezuela, Guyana, n Brazil T/E
    U. reniformis Brazil T/EA
    U. unifolia2 Central America, w South America T/E

    My definition of success is being able to keep them going for at least one year and get them to flower. I've only had a U. alpina colony for more than a year, but they never flowered.
