    Now I know what you guys mean when you say that U.livida is invasive. It has alot of lolons coming out of the bottom of the pot, and it tried to overtake my nearby pot of U.subulata.

    I keep mine in check by growing it in an undrained container. It keeps it out of my other pots. But you still have to watch out for (I can't think of the name right now but the one that has the bunny flowers) because it will grow on the outside of the pot and send stalons into other pots.
    My life sucks

    U. Sandersonii and yes i have noticed this. the runners come out of the pot and look like little spikes coming out. when i first saw them they looked like flower scapes!

    I like my sandersonii. Even thought it can be invasive I would like to get mine to grow on the houseide of the pot. I think that looks cool!

    almost all terrestrial Utrics will go out the bottom of the pot which is why i lost interest in keeping 30 species of terrestrials. sandersonii and one clone of aureomaculata will go over top and into the next pot. however these guys arent the real pain. those that actually produce viable seed are a bigger headache than anything.

    Wait...viable seed? so that means you cant get seed from Utric flowers? and by the ones you hate are like...U. subulata?
