    Iperua/Foliosa (PICS)

    Some pics of some of my favorite cps, at least until my orchidioides flower.

    First off, my U. reniformis after a nice winter rest outdoors:



    Wait, where's that leaf coming from?

    Even though it won't flower for me ( ) after a winter of torture ( ), I love this species for its large leaves and wandering rhizomes:



    It's going nuts underground!

    My U. nelumbifolia is flowering (This one's yours Andy!):



    Comparison with a U. longifolia flower:



    A different angle...



    Such long flower stalks!

    Love the reniformis, wish I had the space.

    How long is the nelumbiflora spike, unless you have very small hands I may have to cross it off my want list . Looks too big for my little indoor setup.

    Very nice flowers, can't wait for the few I have in spike to finish up and flower already.

    alot of the Europeans have been giving their plants a cool dormancy.....IIRC right at around 40 degrees.....supposedly it drastically increases the chances for flowers........im told the plant itself can take air temps to freezing so long as the soil itself doesnt get cold enough to freeze......

    RSS - I'm a midget. JK.

    The stalk is pretty long... I'd say a foot and a half, probably more. I't out in the greenhouse right now.

    Sheridan, thanks for the compliment and you're right -- I'm doing it the Euro-way. It's in a peaty mix with cold winters. As for leaf size, I think it's all about the clone. That's why I'm always trying to get more.

    Adam, yeah it freezes here, but it's in my greenhouse, where temps stay above 35 F in the winter. My asplundii took a big hit from the cooler temps. I tried to torture it into flowering but all it did was lose most of its leaves.

    I'm trying to make a hybrid, btw. Longifolia x nelumifolia and vice versa. The leaves would look really wacky!

    asplundii is a headache species.......it will do a crash even if conditions dont change, dont beat yourself up over it.....give it time, there is a good chance it will rebound.....

    So it's never flowered for you? How long have you had yours? I've had mine for about a year.
