    I am so happy for you! I remember that we met some 5 years ago relative to these incredible plants. Back then you had diddleysquat, and now you are one of the top growers of these species in the world, with nearly every species in your stewardship. Your work and dedication with this section of Utricularia has increased the worldwide availability of these plants and I hope your generosity serves as an example to other growers of these plants which have been fairly controlled up to this point within narrow circles. Great work Pyro, and thanks for sharing the photo's!

    wow... are those flowers real? I swear I see plastic .It's a really nice flower!!! It's better than any orchid, cause I think CP's are more fascinating. Are the "orchidioides" type bladderworts harder to grow?

    depends, yah cant grow them like terrestrials, i treat mine like neps or orchids. my asplundii and alpina are weeds that are attempting to leave their pots to grow in the damp LFS thats in the bottom of their tray. no standing water, atleast not for more than a day or so out of every 2 weeks which is about how often i give my neps their soaking. some ppl have actually had really good luck growing them in the LFS of their nep pots. most like temps similar to intermideate neps warm days, cool nights
