    I think that U. livida would do slightly better than the sandersonii for flowering. Both of mine are flowering now, but livida has been more prolific.

    Thumbs up

    The vote is unanimous. Livida it is!

    Thanks for your help everyone!

    I always though that sanderonnii was easier to get to flower.. mine is flowering like crazy and my livida only has 3 flowers. oh well, might as well agree with what everyone said.

    @Devon: I haven't had the same experience in my terrarium, but the livida is close to the water outlet, and the sandersonii is on the other side...so it's not fair! Keep in mind the goal is low light. Have you found that sandersonii is happy in light that would suit D adalae?

    I still haven't planted the wort, so I can take more input.\\

    THANKS

    I have been growing U. sandersonii in a mini "USB terrarium". That dumb thing doesn't give enough light to keep a D. schizandra happy, IMO. Actually, I sprouted some ferns, but the Utric. is really etiolated. I will move it later.

    D. schizandra, that is supposed to be low light...right? Do you have any of those that you wouldn't mind sharing--for something of course.

    I don't have any. Have D. prolifera, but I need to grow it out some more.
