    Pics: January 10, 2009

    I took some photos of a few plants yesterday.

    U. livida from Merrivale, Natal, South Africa has got to be one of the most prolific utrics I have ever grown (Jimscott, how's yours doing?) :











    Some U. calycifida:



    My indoor colony of U. gibba:





    My outdoor colony of U. gibba (Yes, it grows outside in Oregon!!! It survived snow & ice):



    The pond it grows in:



    Some nep seedlings for you nep fanatics out there:



    Thanks for looking.

    Looking good, Jeff. Is that the U. merriwak or the basic, run of the mill U. livida? My straight up U. livida is flowering. Still learning how to get clear pics from this camera:



    The U. merriwak likes to grow out of the drainage holes of the pot but hasn't flowered.

    Thanks Scott.

    That's the U. merriwak you sent me. I'm growing it under 2 florescents at about 65F steady. It's in nearly 75% cocopeat. I've also got U. praelonga, U. uniflora, U. dichotoma, and a couple other terrestrials growing along side it. It's on a grow rack with my U. humboldtii too.

    I don't know why it wouldn't flower for ya... how much longer have you had yours than I have had mine? I got mine from you around June I think?

    Usually temps make my plants flower, and I rarely change their water levels. But in this case I changed its water levels and kept its temps the same.

    Good luck making it flower.

    Wow, very nice utrics. I would love to have U. gibba in a pond. Neat little seedlings.

    Capensis - chances are you can have them in your pond, if you have one. It's not too warm in Florida, right? I don't know how hot of temps U. gibba can tolerate, but it seems the warmer it is, the faster it grows.

    Obregon - The seedlings are Splendiana x (Stenophylla x Lowii) x (Rokko x Veitchii). I got them a little over a year ago, I think.

    I might have a giveaway of the U. livida Merriwak in spring... but I don't know. I'll probably be loaded down w/ work.
