    I have bought a few. I think only filiformis and falconeri though. filiformis was one of my first carnivorous plants. It looked like a carnivorous bush in the picture and I had to have it.

    There are no utrics in any of the pics. I don't grow any. At least not to my knowledge.

    there most certainly is a utric in pic 3 from the looks of it...tiny thin green leaves, and even what appears to be a small flower stalk... :P

    the psittacina looks fine...its a bit of a slow grower, and it might be a bit stressed from being uprooted and shipped during the growing season, but i doubt it...it should start to shove out a ton of growth for you soon.

    You do grow a utric! In the moss under the sundew, it even has a seed pod!

    It looks like U.subulata did back when I grew it like 10 years ago.

    It was probably a hitchhiker with another plant.

    Ah, I see them now. Those tiny green scaly looking leaves. I never noticed them before. They just sort of blended in with the moss. And the flower stalk I thought was a moss spore stalk. But looking at it more closely I think you are right! This is one of the plants that intermedia arrived in, I guess it had another hitchhiker!

    Cool, I have never grown a utric before. Guess I am doing a decent job of it so far.

    Good eyes!

    EDIT: I take back that comment about doing a decent job of it. I believe it formed cleistogamous flowers (no petals) which, according to Barry Rice, means conditions are not ideal. Maybe I will take the seed and setup something for them.

    Dashman I think that's U.subulata, a species characterized by producing cleistogamous flowers, I bet your conditions are just fine for the "weed"

    Yes, its doing good. Just needs more light IMO. It is getting over shadowed by all of the flavas surrounding it. Thanks for donating it in the NASC Auction!

    Thanks for finding them. I REALLY want to dig one up to examine the traps now. Never seen a utric in person until now. I choose not to grow them mainly since I am cramped for space as it is.
