    First question:
    Does anyone else have a U. X "jitka"
    If so how, do you grow it successfully.
    Second question.
    How do you keep your terrestrial utricularias pure? that is keep them from mixing together. i.e. keeping bisquamata out of everything else. keeping dichotoma where you want it.

    Okay so I have a 3rd question.
    Is U. blanchettii an annual?
    and then a 4th question. What does U.endressii look like, Have tried it twice not sure what to expect.
    Thanx in advance for any and all answers.

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    1) I have 'Jitka' and I grow it like all my other Orchidioides group Utrics. There are a couple threads where I have gone into a lot of detail but basically it is a modified "Slack"-type potting; live sphag in a half height net orchid pot that is set within a full size standard pot. I have pics I can email you if you want more detail.

    2) I keep my terrestrials pure by pulling rogue elements out whenever I see them. Tredious but it is the only way that works for me.

    3) U. blanchettii was not an annual in my hands

    4) U. endresii looks fairly similar to U. alpina or praetermissa except the flower is mauve/lilac instead of white. Again, I have a pic somewhere if you would like me to email it.

    Hey there Pyro,
    Thanx so much for all the info.
    I use cut off 2 liter bottles and place them over the top of a 4 inch pot. Kinda like a small terrarium.Seems to work well except for those that somehow were exposed to too much heat/ sun.

    Pyro, I was wondering, did you write that article about Utricularia jamesoniana in the ICPS newsletter?

    Guilty as charged

    THough I do have to say that in the time between when I wrote the article and now I have switched up the conditions for jamesoniana (again.) It (and all the Orchidioides) will grow as I have outlined in the article but I like my new way more.

    Hey Lois,

    I don't have it bookmarked and it is not a specific thread about the method, it is just mentioned in one of the threads. If you search only the Utric forum for posts with my user name it should limit the possibilities. Might be one of my picture threads...
