    U.Sandersonii

    Ok I got 2 U.Sandersonii in the mail today, but I have failed with these twice. I had U.Sabulata but it never grew. So, how do I get these off to a flying start? Should I take off the flowers? I have no grow lights/humidifier or any expert equipment. All I have is 2 trays of spahgnum moss in a propagator to attemp to revive it. Anyway, The U.San is tiny, I'll post some pics later. I put one in a pot filled 4 fiths with Sphagnum moss peat mixed with perlite, added a layer of wet Sphagnum moss, then topped it with the moss peat mix. With the other one, I just potted it in moss peat and perlie. They are in a tray of water in the kitchen at the moment.

    I would put "plugs" in a pot, room temp, and saturated. Window sill light is fine for dealing with freshly shipped plants. Then just wait for them to recover and spread.

    I was brand new to the hobby and had no idea what I was doing with utrics. The window sill, open tray, was all that I needed.
