    Here it is, the battle of the utrics!


    LOL!

    I trust that mine is U. quelchii, ultimately, it came from a source that should know. Only time will tell, now!

    So, erm, what does it like?

    was there a picture that you meant to include? from your quote it sounded like it, but i dont see a picture...almost like a pokemon battle. hahaha. pokemon--i am OLD!

    as for what it likes? you mean like what im growing it in? i meant to do a 1:1:1 orchid bark, LFS, and perlite mix. for the strangest reason, i decided to do a 1:1 LFS, perlite mix instead. i know people have noted that the sphagnum breaks down and causes problems, but im hoping that will not be the case since i am using transparent pots, which will allow sphagnum to grow inside the pot, thus prevent total breakdown of the moss.

    dunno if it is a vigorous grower. from my experience with utric plugs, they always appear to die due to reduction in leaf production, but are actually investing energy in sending out tons of stolons and runners in resulting in an unexpected (yet expected) vengeful comeback. as long as i can see runners spreading all over the pot, i'll be happy.

    Yeah, I was asking what kind of conditions and stuff the plant likes. I was tired and a bit "punchy" last night.

    I know that the "mega" Utrics sometimes go dormant, so I am watching fo that in my U. reniformis. So far, it's got TONS of stolons, and quite a few leaves.

    So im deciding to resurrect this thread because i think there is a good possibility that this plant is not U. quelchii but U. tricolor. opinions anyone?
    my plant:

    U. tricolor:

    Could be a small leaved form of U. reniformis. Hard to say without flowers. Might be able to tell soon by observing the stolons/"tuber" .....

    problem with identifying Utrics by the lollons is that different conditions will affect the shape of them......flower and trap morphology are bout the only real way....

    having stolons is much better than having none in my opinion. right? maybe i dont know enough about Utric morphology. but if they do possess stolons at least we could rule out U. tricolor, which isnt even in the orchidioides complex.

    Crap, it does look like my U. tricolor.
    I sure hope my "young U. quelchii" I'm reciving off ebay is actually U. quelchii and not U. tricolor considering how much I paid for it compared to U. tricolor ...
