    Utric Nelumbifolia

    Got this guy a couple weeks ago and he's sending up all sorts of leaves (and my moss looks happy!)

    i just got this one yesterday. very excited to see it bloom. I hear its very easy to grow. It will also send out runners and populate itself around your collection. One of my favorite utrics for sure.

    It is my one and only favorite and if I didn't have any others I'd still be happy as a bug. I'd been looking for it for months because I love the umbrella shaped leaves, and the flowers...well, I've never grown it before, but I assume they look better in person than even the pictures online make it look. My hope is to get it to explode all over my broms

    I got a few plants last fall & have been very pleasantly amazed at how robust / vigorous they are. One tried to bloom soon after it arrived. I figured it was too small for the energy required so I snipped the stalk. 4-6 weeks ago it tried again from a larger base so I let it go and now have 2 flowers in bloom (2 stalks) & several other blooms coming along. Very cool seeing these large flowers in person. One of the plants from an aerial stolon also tried to get in on the flower action but I snipped it - again too small imho... Hopefully, I'll get some pics in the coming weeks (along w/ U. longifolia).
    All the best,
    Ron
