    half sized? yah got a runt of a flower as they should be just about equal sized. another area where the flowers are different is how the spur is shaped on the back of the flower.

    not sure of other forms, im only aware of the typical and blue forms

    Runt, huh? Well, there's another scape forming, so we'll see if they get larger as they go. Maybe its just warming up. I'm just glad it is flowering at all! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    well atleast the typical and blue forms i have are pretty close in terms of flower size. most of my Utrics will throw out a "runt" now and then. not sure why.

    I was just wondering, but how did someone find out about the U. sandersonii 'Blue'? Was it growing in the wild, or was it a mutation?

    Well, hmm... My sandersonii white continues to flower continually, but after only two rather runty flowers (half-sized compared to the white), it appears that my blue has had enough and is quitting again. I am seeing no new scapes appearing. Nothing has changed that I can tell.

    I have no idea who discovered (or created) the blue variant, but it is pretty. I wonder what would happen if you crossed the two? Which color would be dominant? Or would you get a surprise?

    Or *can* you get seed from these flowers at all? Are they self-fertile, or is intervention necessary? I honestly haven't paid much attention as the white has been off by itself, with no where for potential seeds to spread to, other than a praelonga pot (and there's been no sign of this after 2+ months of continuous flowering).

    Maybe you can conduct a controlled experiment by having the two of them side-by-side from spring through fall, outside, and see if the pollinators can cross things for you - assuming it is possible for them to operate that way.
