    Josh, why are you sure its the blue form? just curious..............the standard form defiantly has color under good light. also what do you mean by flooded? there is a difference between the two forms as far as number of flowers. if you dont have the standard form and havent seen what a 4 inch pot of this can do its hard to call a pot of the blue form flooded with flowers. i can see a pot of the blue form having alot of flowers but i still think it will pale in comparison to the standard form going nuts.

    cant wait to see pics

    Lower light might produce bigger foliage, and higher light smaller- it happens with some plants when grown in shade all the time
    that makes no logic

    Is this the blue form or not???









    As you can see from the first picture I have given away a chunk of the pot. Those areas were also covered in flowers just like the rest. Is this pot going nuts like I described? It is definately better then just the few flowers Sheridan was talking about. So my next logical question would be is this the "blue" form or just the standard form grown in high light? Because I admitantly grow my Utrics in my GH with my orchids. Right now there is no chade cloth on the GH and only two layers of plastic so that cuts down on the light a little. What do the experts think??

    Nice plant. They are pretty and they have blue, but they are not the blue form. The blue form has different structure(and to me that's the main difference... some people get caught up on the color aspect for some reason)

    You know I was thinking that same thing after I posted the pics and then went back and studied Cindy's pics. The name "blue" is misleading and the main reason for the misunderstanding I had. It needs to be made into a var. instead of calling it the "blue" form. Especialy when the standard form can exibit the same blue color too. So Rattler sorry bro it looks like mine is a heavily blue standard. Now I have to find someone willing to send or trade for the blue form! LMAO

    looks like a regular standard form. like i said no where does it say the standard formis without color. the standard form is generally patches of more lavendar where the blue form is generally completly a light blue everywhere, not to mention that the "apron" and spur are both different shapes

    I realize that now. The name was just misleading is all. I think I have ti straight now. I figured the standard form was white is all.
