    That's a lot of green! My little cup will not go green but it flowers like crazy. Been flowering for months now.

    I would try not to freeze it. I keep it in a sealed container so it can get pretty hot (maybe around 90) but it is indoors.

    No, it is to one side of the jar.

    Middle of summer and looks like I've never make it too fall without shipping some out, so here are some photos before it gets ripped up again.

    Mine basically looks like this, but terrestrial, once it gets established. Weird little Utric. The only one I have besides U. fulva that carpets the soil thickly with "leaves."

    So 12-14 months ago I started with the photo below, harvested a good amount for the 2014 NASC auction around Apr 2014, harvested a lot more June 2014, and the last harvest was in Nov 2014.

    Updated photos of what it looks like today this is likely 95% grown in, it simply will not look much better than this without flowers and I just can not get this species to flower.

    Here is about 1/2 of the total that grew in over the winter.

    The U. graminifolia you gave me has been doing great, I keep some of it in trays when I water my cephalotus and it seems to like that. Haven't figured out how to stimulate flowering, however for some reason I did get one little stalk out of the bunch. Thanks again, these guys grow like weeds!
