    Utricularia id plz...

    bought this which was supposed to be a U. quelchii. looking around the forums though, it seems to be something else possibly. can you confirm that it's a U. quelchii or is it something else?

    Is that the one that I got a little chunk of a few months ago?

    Mine's just now starting to grow new leaves.



    FWIW, that's almost identical to what mine looks like.

    Katie, i actually found it on e-bay. quite a find. there were two available (with the buy now option), and within 4 hours both were gone! safe to say, i was pretty happy. even more happy that it's verified as U. quelchii. for a time i thought it was a U. nephrophylla.

    My first thought was U. nephrophylla, only because I actually have a colony. But when the replies were all U. quelchii, which I've never had,.. I kept my mouth shut. Here's my U. nephropylla for comparison:

    hahaha. to tell you the truth jim, the reason why i had doubts about the plant WAS because i was looking at your Utric photos. add to that, i've never had either plant before. but now i think i can tell a subtle difference. your U. nephrophylla has an interesting bumpy like texture on the leaves, while the U. quelchii looks smoother. looking at other pictures, this seems to be the case! yay for independent learning!
