    My U. humboltii was going wild in a few inches of waterlogged lfs topped with live sphagnum, all in an unheated terrarium under lights. Then I moved the plant into a terrarium with a heat mat.

    ***U. humboltii does not like warm conditions***

    The specimen went back to an unheated terrarium just a few days later, only after all the leaves turned yellow and the runner/stolon things burnt halfway down to the ground. The plant is still alive but is sure taking it's time to recover.

    Phil, I love your S. flava ornata. And what a display bog!

    Peter, not sure if you have the same humboldti clone that Phil traded to Pyro and myself but its an "oddball" compared to the other humboldtii in cultivation here in the states as it seems to have a definate preferance for heavy peat based waterlogged soil. i tried growing a division in LFS/orchid bark like Pyro started his division and killed it fairly quickly. which is why ive been giving him crap............my division in peat has gone nuts and ive fried 3 flower stalks in the lights so far.....im going to have to move it or try and make the flowerstalks run horizontal for a while...................his division in LFS/mulch hasnt done much of anything

    oh, now I remember. You posted a pic of your plant awhile back. That's pretty funny that they'd strongly prefer peat over lfs. Mud is mud, isn't it?

    You know I am RIGHT here!!

    So, for the record:

    his division in LFS/mulch hasnt done much of anything
    This may not have anything to do with media and everything to do with environment. Until recently I had it on the windowsill here at the lab. Once I moved it home to the crawlspace it rebounded wonderfully.

    Pyro isnt using the LFS as a "mud" he is using it like a nepenthes mix.......sorta
    But not. My Iperua get different treatment than my Orchidioides. This humbo is in a large net pot lined with sphag with a "core" of pine bark mulch. The LFS is only in there to keep the PBM in the basket. So really my set up is sort of "mud", just "mud" in a moss lining.

    And I said I would repot already so quite givin me crap
