    Two utrics in one pot?

    Has anybody tried this before?
    I was just thinking about it. For temperate utrics, I was thinking of sandersonii and lividia. Or any other that you tried. Do you think one would kill the other, or they would both grow and it would be a pot full of different nice flowers. Any body with experience that tried this, I would love to hear, and possibly pictures?



    Thanks

    Those are nice, easy plants. I would keep them in separate pots, only for organizational purposes. They won't harm each other and grow in identical conditions. They make excellent window sill plants and flower very easily.

    U. sandersonnii

    U. livida

    Hopefully, they'll grow with each other just fine. I have two utrics in one pot (U. bisquamta and dichotoma).

    have i done 2 utrics in one pot? yes, but never on purpose.......actually i tried very hard to keep them in separate pots.....they will likely grow together just fine but you will never get them separated from each other....

    My own experience tells me that Livida will outcompete sandersonii eventually.

    not necessarily, livida grows in the soil, sandersonii grows on the soil for the most part......depends on some things .....bigger pot equals less problems, in a small pot one is likely to win.......
