    I grow U. gibba in a 5-gallon plastic pail drilled with holes, buried in my sphagnum bog garden.

    I was flowering very prolifically in the past couple of months, and I am noticing several dozen swollen seed pods developing.

    Is U. gibba easy to get to set seed, or am I doing something right?

    Anyway, I should have a fair amount of seed soon, if all goes well.

    I also grow U. livida, U. bisquamata, and U. subulata outside, and only the U. subulata sets seed.

    Yes, I'm also curious..... did you get good seed?

    My U.gibba also flowered prolifically this summer, but didn't produce pods.

    Scott, check your U. lividia closely. I beleive I got mine from you. To me it looks as if some of the pods produce a few seeds 1-4 seeds per pod.
