    I just noticed in other posts that everyone is getting their U. sandersonii 'Blue' to flower. But is it actually blue?

    yes the flowers are definatly a nice light blue compared to the typical form. the flower shape is also a bit different between the two. i tried to explain the differences in shape at one point but my communication skills arent the greatest and it turned out poorly. best bet is to grow both forms and see for you self, when/if yah get it to bloom. or if yah want to search the forums a bit i think my post was about a year ago and you can go see what i wrote.

    Well... not everybody gets to see the flowers! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] I got two flower stalks and a teardrop shaped bud - but I never actually saw a flower.

    Maybe the little magical dwarves are up to it again, nurturing your sandersonii, and then relieving themselves onto your plants, just to make them shut down their flowers, and make you mad. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] Anywho, I was wondering if there is any significant difference between U. livida and U. sandersonii stolons/leaves (i.e. U. subulata has grass-like stolons and U. longifolia has large, leafy stolons)? For if I was to put them into my Utric pot, I would want to know if one or the other survives.

    flowers is the main way. if you get stolons going over the edge of the pot its definatly sandersonii. sandersonii leaves can varry in appearance quite a bit even wih the same clone depending on how much light the plant is getting.

    Oh, well, then I suppose I wont know if any plant survives until it's too late. But, why should one Utric crowd another out, since they're so similar, and one colony consists of a hundred plants?

    oh one Utric can easily crowd out another. in something the size of a 4 inch pot some utrics can about choke out Drosera. about the only place i mix Utric species is in dart frog and Mantella tanks cause i really dont care if one does better than another as long as one of them decides to grow and spread like a weed.
