    Update: Nineteen days later and seven stolons growing strong. I'm continuously impressed. What am I supposed to do about my lights? Judging by the size of the stolon that came in the initial plug these will clearly hit the lights soon enough!

    xvart, do you know if your plant is male or female? I was reading up on them and learned they are gender specific, like Neps. Here is were I discovered that. Nice hybred cross flower pictures.

    Interesting. I did not know that. Good reading, though. However, I wish they provided more detail since there is little detail about the dioecious nature of utricularia. I doubt the ICPS would be so casual but could it be just a reference to the pollen distributor and the pollen receptor?

    I wouldn't even know where to begin identifying a male Utricularia from a female Utricularia!

    No, these plants are not dioecious.

    All that article was saying is that the female plant was the plant that he collected the seed off of and the male plant was the one he used to gather the pollen from for making the hybrid.

    Utrics flowers have both male and female parts

    Nice plants. Looks like they are sprouting upward fast. Soon it'll explode in width. Keep us posted.

    I've got to ask, why do your stolons have brown edges, Sheridan? I assumed they hit the lights.
