    Lightbulb U. longifolia & tridenta flowers

    A couple of my Utricularia decided to treat me to some flowers. First up U. longifolia


    and my U. tridenta


    Now if I could only get the sandersonii to bloom

    Congrats on getting the U. longifolia to flower. Did you do anything special to get it to flower? Those look great!

    Thanks, I treated it like the rest of my utrics. It gets some direct light as there is a small shelf of plants between it and the south window it sits in. So whatever sun gets past the shelf is all it gets.

    I have just the regular form right now. My "Blue" form did a disappearing act late this last winter. My longifolia looks crappy too if you don't count the flowers. I have been battling some type of mold on it's leaves all winter. I think I finally cured that about a month ago as I haven't seen any fuzz on the leaves in that time.

    Great job! I'm with xvart on what ya did. Is your light from a fluorescent bulb or out in the Colorado sun? Mine are under artificial lighting, flooded once a week, and no action. Oddly, believe it or not, I just spied a flower stalk on U. sandersonii blue (no pictures yet!).

    I consider it Pure Colorado sun. My plants are in the same room my computer is and I spend most of my free time on the computer so the lights are on 'til late in the evening but I don't think they are near enough to contribute much to the plants. I have my plant sitting in a tray of water that I allow to dry out, but I dont allow the LFS the plant is in to dry out.

    OK Jim, rub it in. They say turn about is fairplay and after doing the same to you a couple years ago with the U. s. "Blue" you sent me, I have it coming. Seriously, Congrats! You've been working at them for a while and I look foreward to seeing your pics.

    @glider14 I'm PMing you!
