    Sheridan - Good. I was hoping you still had some around. It seemed easy enough for me to lose it. My neighbor overwatered.

    Andy - Definately! With some luck I might have a couple Brasilian species for you too.

    The division I took for you has flowered twice in the last 12 months. It's actually doing better than my mother plant.

    I'll make a note to myself right now so I remember to contact you...

    Interesting. A while back, I started drilling holes in the sides of some pots just to allow more oxygen in to the mix - although I've not yet had anything sprout from there.

    I seem to recall Pyro mentioning the use of tall pots iirc so they could find the level they like but I thought that was just the underground growth and they would still send their leaves to the surface....

    I have a few 3" net pots that I haven't used. I may have to pull them out and give them a shot. In the fall, I received a clone of quelchii & one of endresii - both are barely alive. The quelchii has some small 1/8" 'leaves' (or smaller)(when it came with a 6" leaf) and the endresii is similar (although one pot has leaves ~1").

    Are you guys all using peat-based mixes?
    All the best,

    Sounds good Jeff! I think I was going to try and get U. reniformis small form and U. reniformis "Big Sister" for you too right? I had gotten small form going but let it dry out. I got one "Big Sister" going out of 5 attempts and that one is for Travis. If you're interested in both of those still, I could probably try again. My "Big Sister" is in a much bigger pot now so I can't just flip the ball in my hand and cut roots... But check out what I just found that I could probably grab and try with.


    (U. reniformis "Big Sister")







    Ron, My hybrid mentioned in this topic is in pure lfs, as well as my U. alpina:



    The "Big Sister" is in a peat perlite mix.

    I'm fine, not really looking for reniformis clones anymore. Thanks though.

    Good choice of growing medium. I have a hunch that peaty mixes and cold winters trigger flowering in reniformis. I think that's why it flowers more often for a lot of European growers.
