    Jim - Not sure why they are producing more gemmae. I don't think it's a stress response but that's the only thing I can think of at the moment that might cause them to do this.

    Peter - I grow them in 6" and 8" pots. 50:50 peaterlite. I gently top water and allow the pot to drain freely and discard the excess. The depth of the pot helps retain enough water that I only need to water every other day until the temps start getting warmer. I put them outside during the summer on my back porch rail (east side of my house) where they get direct sun from about 7:30am to 1:30pm during the summer. Right now I put them out on my sidewalk in the front yard (west side) from shortly after noon to whenever I remember to bring them in so they don't get frosted at night. Once my night temps start staying in the 40s and higher, I'll leave them outside all night.

    Dyflam - Yeah it's the carpet moss stuff. So far it hasn't bothered the intermedia, but I keep my eye on it just in case it starts crowding them out. Though with D. intermedia it could work the other way 'round [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]! I started with two plants spaced apart from each other and they have started to spread slowly in spite of the "bad" moss.

    pond boy - They are clean now, but I will start putting them outside with the scorpioides this week and they'll start catching bugs again. They are "sloppy" eaters. They'll get bug crumbs all over themselves before the end of the month. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Hey Steve, do you have a close up of the Utric flowers? Those look almost all white, nothing at all like mine. What conditions are you keeping it in? Natural or artificial light? Does sunlight make a difference in colors for those flowers like it does on U. sandersonii? Man I wish I could get a good close up of my livida flower to compare with. Also, HOW the heck do you guys get so many flowers on 1 stalk?? Im so jealous.. the 3 Utrics I have had flower for me had 1 bloom then nothing.


    Steve

    Edit: Ok I did get a fairly nice side view shot of my livida flower... Enjoy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Steve, that's a nice shot of your livida. Mine don't get anywhere close to that dark a purple/lavender color. Wish they did. The color on mine is so pale that bright light fades it to white, so I gave up on trying to get a close up of them. I grow them in a 3" pot, 50:50 peaterlite, which is setting in a 1" deep water tray. Other than the pale color they seem to like it as they have started growing out the holes in the bottom of the pot. Maybe I should try growing them as aquatics [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]! I got them from kyaker78 last July after having failed at growing U. gibba [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] !

    Here's one more pic that I took last night. I was watering my plants and noticed that the new leaf on one of my N. ventricosas was very deformed. I found the culprit almost immediatly! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img]

    It's my first Nepenthes flower!
