    I suggest adding a teaspoon of salt for taste!

    Seriously, though, I've never owned a tricolor so can't be of much help. Sorry.

    I grew mine like a nep, and it produced several flower stalks.

    I can make a few other suggestions for frustrating plants.... But I hear ya. Last year mine sent up a stalk and I could see a bud.... but I never saw a flower (just like sandersonii blue). And this year, as I write, again there are flower buds, but....

    I'm guessing U. tricolor likes it hot?

    I tried frying my U. tricolor into flower. I posted a photo on this forum a few months ago outlining the stalks it was sending up in my "humidy Petiolaris Complex" terrarium. So far... more flower stalks (or some funky kind of growth in the high humid environment), but no flowers

    So, given your in Montana, your "frying" method is different than mine. I so go for it! Like chloroplast says, just add some salt
