    They're not too picky but if you have the wherewithal to provide something that is deep and wide, with drainage holes, they'll do very well for you... once they settle in.

    For me, Sandersonii will thrive in anything with wet peat in it, drainage holes or no. Like jimscott said, it takes a month or two for them to 'settle in' and spread across the surface, but once they do they'll never stop flowering, especially with lots of light and water.

    Woah, those arrived quick.





    Oh, and apparently they're blues, not typicals. Oh well. Pot is about 3" square and is absolutely packed, wonder if I should just immediately consider splitting...

    Man I just bought a Blue Sandersonii. It was a little three inch pot but it is PACKED. It had like six flowers already and has a few more coming on. I'm almost pretty concerned that it will get root bound. Is this a problem? It had a huge strand of bladders coming out the bottom even, and little vines with bladders falling off the sides.

    The entire substrate and all comes out with ease. Plus, there are over ten seedling Drosera of some sort in the pot too...

    Man what am/should I do?

    I don't think it's really that big a problem for common species. You might want to propagate it/spread it out if you want to see more growth.

    Is it even possible for U. sandersonii to get rootbound? I thought they didn't have roots as we think of them?

    Well, I've gotten plugs that were 5 lolons on a stolon all under 2 cm and wet myself with joy over it, lol.

    Once Pyro sent me U. sandersonii (note the species name is never capitalized) that was a strand an inch long and he wrapped it like it was a vial of nitroglycerine. I think he sent half of his plant as he had just gotten it too. The package came ripped, apparently shot with a shotgun and had tire tracks on it. They issued me a written apology, wow. The strand was broken into 5 pieces. They HAD to have used xrays to be able to shatter it that way, I mean, to be SURE. I still have that plant, thanks Pyro!
