    Question Have two utrics, which one will suit my purpose?

    I have U. livida and U. sandersonii. I would like to know which one would tolerate:

    Low light


    and which one would tolerate

    Living with d. adalea.

    I would also like to know: Will they flower in this situation? I want to keep the adalea under low light and use it as a house plant.

    Please advise!

    Thanks, I do understand that, but I am really looking for a comparison of the two: which one will do what I want better?

    lividas are easier to care for but i find sandersonii better looking if you are looking for flowers that are easier to grow i woud go with the livida they will live as long as you have light i have 1 because its nice to have a plant you dont have to worry about

    Yeah, I think livida is kinder than the sonii. I just got my first sandersonii flowers last month! Livida has been flowering all along. Hmm.

    Anyone else want to sway my decision?

    My lividia didn't flower till I gave it about 4 hours of direct sunlight on my windowsill, before it got about 2 hours and not much light after. But one time the pot practically dried out, and the leaves were shriveled, but I watered it and it came back.

    My sandersonii did that. It came back also. That is a survival feature of theirs.

    Thanks guys for your help, but I hope someone who knows which works better will come along.

    I am still pondering. Which would be better?

    Hmm, based on what you've told me and what I've seen, I think livida is the better choice. I say this reluctantly mind you!
