    How does one get longifolia to bloom? Mine is filling a 4 inch clay pot sitting in water and it has not flowered yet. Is there something special to get it to flower?

    Wish I could tell you. You'd figure with 5 clones and 7 years experience with the plant I'd know but not one of mine has bloomed. If you figure it out please let me know.

    Mine flowered last year (U.longifolia) I keep it in my windowsill, it kinda goes to sleep a bit right around now with the cooler temps, but wakes up sometime in about ?January?? Dunno the specifics, but it is REALLY rootbound. I keep it pretty much wet year round, but with a generally lower water level in winter.

    If I get success again this year with the flowering, I will let you know, but last year it was most definitely in february-april that it made its big honkin flowers- O lny have a really crummy "real" picture of it sadly, but it is good enough to sho wthe colour and size of it

    Well, I've yet to decide on the potting for that longifolia, but it seems to like the ziploc it is in right now. Produced a new leaf or two and a baby is coming off one of the older leaves.

    How are they as far as humidity is concerned? Would they be fine treated almost like a houseplant?

    They are pretty tolerant of low humidity but you might need to acclimate them to it.

    Yes, as Pyro says- our house has radiator heat and is bone-dry, my U.longifolia is/are in an open tray in my windowsill with no problems- this is how I got it to bloom even so as long as you are a bit careful taking it from extreme bag-supplied hhumidity to something much lower, it should be fine

    I plan on moving it to a real pot soon and also taking part and putting it in a paludarium I have going. One of the leaves produced a baby off of it complete with little bladders and everything.
