    Epiphytic Utric Pics!

    Ok, I tooks some photos of my epiphytic utrics today. I'm quite happy with them.

    Here's my U. Reniformis "Giant" from Triffid Park, AU. I'm thinking of repotting it. Those are 10"+ long leaves you're seeing there.





    Here's my Alpina "Pitter Moon".





    Here's my Asplundii. I noticed there is something growing off it that I am not familiar with.



    What on earth is this??



    My pathetic Reniformis "Typical"...



    Trying to get away from the slime mold taking over the pot...



    Thanks for looking!

    Man, they look great! That U. Reniformis "Giant" is awesome! It kind of reminds me of the top of sarracenia flava.

    Mmmm... Chocolate chip cookies... Great pictures. I really enjoy the U. Reniformis "Giant". What are the holes in the cups for? Drainage? Or poking and prodding? Or to see when the substrate is breaking down? All of the above?! lol.

    Thanks guys.

    @ Xvart - I'm not exactly sure why I put holes there. I saw Rattler's pots and decided that was the way to go. lol. It probably helps let air in, let stolons grow out, etc.

    Anyways, I forgot to add a pic of my whole Asplundii setup. I'm using Pyro's technique, except I'm using the cheapest pots I could find, not the fancy ones he has.

    Nice pics - awesome black Paph in the background of the last one! Looks like you've got a great windowsill going there.

    the "What on earth is this??" is just stolons(or rolons if yah prefer) growing....nothing odd about it.......the alpina and most of the other Orchidioides section Utrics will do it that i have seen.....

    In which pot?



    Thanks rattler for telling me what it is. Should I cut it off and try to propagate with it?
