    Unhappy

    ok I got a plug labeled U. tricolor and one labeled U. calycifida

    this is tricolor



    this is calycifida


    closer up



    Now to me they look like the same plants. So after having them for awhile now i decided to look up a few pics of the surface parts.
    (I had only seen pics of the flowers)
    And wouldnt you know it they dont look anything like the other pics i found... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Yup, both tricolor. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] U. calyficida has more upright leaves.

    My U. calyficida lays down, but it has oval shaped leaves not liver shaped.

    Yep... sorry bud! My calycifida also lays down, generally speaking, but has occasional upright leaves. It's also got less red/brown pigmentation in the leaves - they're a bolder, brighter green. My tricolor seems to really press its leaves down, much more so than calycifida or my other Utrics, in contrast.

    I'm looking at what I received a couple years ago as calcyfida and tricolor and they look very similar. Mine look spade-shaped, although the largest clacyfida leaves are broader than those that came as tricolor. They're both green with no other pigment. The tricolor is sending up a stalk and the calcyfida is sending up a couple of grass-like appendages that don't seem to be flower stalks.

    dont lie to me Jim, tricolor is impossible to flower BTW if yah got that tricolor from me, yah might want to watch it carefully i found some subulata in mine. calycifida and tricolor are easy to tell apart via the lollons when yah have them side by side. not all calycifida cultivars have pigment in the leaves. i believe the white flowered form(alba or albino or whatever) has plain green leaves
