    Thumbs down

    this is driving me insane! WHY CANT I GET MY SANDERSONII TO BLOOM! you all talk about how your sanders are in full bloom....since i got it, not even an attempt for a stalk. i looked about a week ago and i noticed small strands coming out of the top of the pot and they got taller and taller...they were just the uhh....runners?? i heard U sandersonii will bloom under just about anything...thats why i got it. its in a 29gal terrarium with 2 3ft flourescent blulbs(cool). temps and humidity are usually the same at 70-80. what is the matter with this utric?

    They don't flower all the time. It might take a while. Are the stolons (leaf things) longer than normal? Are they kind of leggy?

    Alex is it in a pot? How big is the pot? When I got mine I had it in a little ziplock bowl that fit in the top of a masson jar so I could watch the traps grow down into the water. It flowered some, but the like everything else I had potted that way stopped growing and flowering. Then I reansplanted that into a 6 inch clay pot and it TOOK off. Its flowering again. Not as much as another I have, but its flowering. I have read before these guys don;t like to be pot bound. Maybe thats the problem? Also mine is getting full sun a few hours a day out in the GH.

    I'm assuming you have the white form? Give it time. They can take awhile (months) before they get adjusted to their environment. Here's a 2 year old pic:

    Is it at least spreading? Some Utrics will flower when they reach the end of their container or are suddenly flooded with water.

    Give it more time. If the photoperiod is an issue for the rest of the year, I'd bet Sheridan's bottom dollar that they will flower next spring!

    Here's a recent quote from a very experienced hobbyist (Aidan):
