    Well, just yesterday, when I just came home from school, I saw a teeny little yellow thing in my D. capensis's pot (pretty smart, huh?). And it was actually a real flower from U. subulata. It has only been making those annoying cleistogamous flowers for months. Now I see a real flower! But I wanted to know, is this some kind of form, since the three lobes aren't connected?

    Here are the pics:






    Don't worry, I didn't take it off the stalk.

    Ben, don't know about what form it is, but U. subulata is the weed of all weeds in the CP world. Be afraid..... be very afraid.

    I am. 'Cept it's growing in my D. capensis's pot, which kinda makes it a double whamy. As long as I never let the seed pods fall into any other pots, I figure it should be fine.

    I thought U. bisquamata was the weed. At least it is the weed around here. I have U. bisquamata popping up in several pots here. I recieved a plug of U. subulata recently and am wondering if it's gonna make it. The fungus gnat larvae (see above thread) might eat it up before it has a chance to establish itself.

    U.bisquamata, U. sandersonii, U. livida, and U. subulata are very weedy - ut subulata is the dandelion of CP-dom! They are way too successful for their own good - pretty flower and all!

    They have a tendency to get into other pots and take over.

    And as a result of contaminating other pots, especially other small utric. species, it makes it next to impossible to keep a species pure. Not a good thing where utric. specialists are concerned.
