    U. nelumbifolia is one of my all time favorite Utricularia. I grow mine in a 16" pot, I keep the soil damp but not sopping wet. My is almost always in bloom right now it has 17 spikes.

    Here are some photos of the flowers.






    Thanks,

    Hello,

    Well it is kind of a long story, I acquired the plant labeled U. humboldtii. I grow it until it flowered thinking it was U. humboldtii. Then I posted these photos Pyro informed me that it was not U. humboldtii and ask me what the leaves looked like, I told him they were perfectly round so he said they must be U. nelumbifolia.

    thanks

    I did?!? My brain must be out to lunch as I seriously do not recall that. I must be getting senile.

    And now I am wondering if I am off my gourd because those blooms do look sort of humboldtii-like. Jeramiah, any chance you have photos of the leaves?? An ID is certain then. If not I can pop a couple shots of my plants as a compare and contrast. But I won't be able to load them till tomorrow.

    I just looking up the old topic here
    It was I guess it was Seandew and Fernando Rivadavia but you added a photo of your leaf to help ID. Here is a photo of the whole plant.



    Thanks again,

    Yes that is definitly nelumbifolia.

    Glider, those red things are mostly aerial stolons (though a couple could be petioles.) Looks like Jeremiah has been training all his back intohis pot. I wonder if that is what I have to do to get mine to bloom??
