    Anyone grow Utricularia menziesii?
    I was just stumbling around the net and found some pictures of it.
    Crazy red flowers, with a strange sort of rosette at the base. I don't have many Utrics but i thought this one was interesting.
    Is it common and i just dont know about it?

    from www.acps.org.au


    from dionee.gr.free.fr
    Im a terible speeler, but I are collage stodint.

    Yes, I grow this one and it is the most rare utric I grow. What kind of information are you looking for? It grows from a tuber and it goes dormant during the hot weather. I have yet to have it flower for me.

    Hi Dave,
    Well, that kind basically. How many people grow it, how easy or hard to grow (different for everyone I know). it's rare and hard to grow, so I won't need to learn more than the basics, since I won't get one untill I have more experience. I just thought it was a really nice plant.

    Thanks,
    -Chris

    I know of only one other person on this forum who also grows it. There have been threads on the CPUK forum that have a lot more detail. I have found it easy to grow if the right conditons are maintained. In the growing season, I keep it cool under bright light in my basement using the tray method. I flood it every now and then. During the summer, I bring it outside to trigger dormancy. I eventually let the pot completely dry out and leave it outside in the shade until the September, then I bring it back to my basement to start the growing season again.

    It has been a fun plant to grow and I do like it. Since the plant is used to "Australia" seasons, it was like a game to get it adjusted to growing in the northern hemisphere.

    Good luck for when you decide to grow it.

    It's a beautiful plant. I like how the stolons form a nice rosette. Too bad isn't available.
