    SWEEET!!!

    Beautiful shots- the U.longifolia one kinda makes up for my clone refusing to flower this year

    And since someone is gonna ask, might as well do it meself- did you do anything special to induce flowering?? Hoe long has that specimen been relatively undisturbed in its current pot?? And what conditions do you keep it in usually??

    Sorry for the barrage of questions, but it sure looks like you are doing things correctly, keep up the good work man!

    I am not such thing!! Never flowered any of the 6 clones that I have much to my shame. I can bloom alpina and asplundii and praetermissa and 'Jitka' and endresii and jamesoniana but for the life of me I can not get longifolia to bloom.

    I've had this specimen for a couple years, and this is the first time it flowered.

    What is different is I put it in a deep, 6"x6" plastic drained pot, in 100% long-fiber sphagnum. I keep it in a greenhouse flat filled with water. It shares space with a D. californica, N. ventricosa, and H. heterodoxa x minor. It took a while to become rootbound in the larger pot, and apparently, it needs a larger pot, and to be rootbound in that larger pot, before it will flower.

    It had another flower scape earlier this year, but my cat ate it.

    lol I had nothin to do with that, Pyro- rattler tryin to stir up trouble- NO WAY !!!

    Scott- right, okay- mine was in a 4" pot in my windowsill for almost 2 years when it flowered (last year around now) I never re-potted heem and this year I think I disturbed it by digging a couple wee plugs out- other than that, EVERYTHING is the exact same and it is looking like no flowers this year darnit, thanks for making an effort explaning what MIGHT have done it tho, sooner or later someone's gonna figure it out I hope

    Oh, and sorry about that first scape- I am REAL glad my doggie has NO interest in my plants!
