    All looking so fine. The waterfall fountain is so awesome and the utric and cobra look like they are loving it.

    Thanks guys!

    Whim, don't scare me about the patchouli. It's my first season with one. I like it a lot, and can't wait to see what the flowers look like.

    Lance, where do you spy a robcanyleyii? LOL! Yes, you are correct. It isn't happy with me at the moment, but I know the why, and it's being fixed. The other trunc. is a Paisan highland. Dory offered to buy me "one plant" at a potluck in a place north of me. He told me he deliberately didn't specify a price. At first I was going to take him up on the offer with a SG hamata going for $200, but put it back when he turned green. I settled for the $75 (marked TC but really SG) rob.

    DJ, they were asking me if I could bring in the wall-o-Utrics at the BACPS meeting Saturday, until I showed them just how BIG the whole set-up is. It is only a little more mobile than the bog is. It would be a real pain to move.

    Want to know more about the utric wall... it looks great BTW. So it's that bamboo garden edging with a pump at the top and basin at the bottom? Do you use RO water for the utrics? Are they planted in anything? Kinda want to replicate it with several different pockets for growing different species...

    It's just regular tap water. Our water reads around 50 ppm, so I can get away with using it for most everything.

    When you set yours up, leave it empty and cycle it for a few months. Algae WILL grow on it, wait for it to bloom really bad, then change the water, and then, hopefully, string alge should set itself up on all surfaces in place of the blob algae. Then you are ready. I used long fiber sphag, which will rot away really fast, to start the Utrics and Darlingtonia. I might have used cut-up coconut fiber pots in some spots, too. I tied them on with pieces of braided nylon kite string, looped around back and forth between the slats.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks for the info! Your feature is really amazing. Especially liked the pics of the utrics blooming. Do they grow faster like that? I was thinking of doing something with hypertufa. Or maybe a large rock with rough crevices chiseled out. Probably will never happen though...

    Utricularia graminifolia, at least, does seem to grow faster on the "wall" than its potted siblings. U. livida is also doing well there, seen as clusters on the left side.
