Wow, it's actually you. I never thought I'd see you active on these forums again.
I recall you had some pretty unique things on your cpuk growlist, like U. simulans.
Whoever you gave your collection away to didn't do so well spreading them around. I assume they killed the U. simulans? Because there are no obvious sources of it when I last checked thoroughly (a couple months ago).
I'm currently trying to get some of the NT utrics into cultivation in the U.S. and I'm trying some Brasilian species. I know RSS has one or more Aranella utrics too.
I believe pretty much all of the macros are in cultivation in the U.S., except for maybe unifolia and definately that other one that almost isn't in cultivation anywhere...forgot what it is called. Either way it's not long before all the macros are in the U.S., which is what most people care about.
I gave about 40 species to a local grower in my area. I haven't had a chance to talk to him but I have been into the stores that carry his plants and I only see U. sandersonii and U. lividia. Very unfortunate. I plan on building my collection back up to where it was but it may take awhile. It seems like there are less people growing Utricularia right now. Back in the day I started a website on Utrics but was using front page and didnt know HTML so I quickly became overwhelmed with the project. I how ever took some web design courses recently, learned xhtml and css and purchased the Adobe Web Premium Suite. I expect to be able to put up a nice website on Utrics over the next several months. Id give out the current link to what I am working on right now but i keep moving it around as I have yet to think of and purchase a domain name for it.

I think the U. simulans had came from an online CP seller in Florida... I recall that it was the only thing that survived the shipping and they did a really poor job of packaging everything so I never went back to them, in fact I dont even remember the name of the place. My guess is that they may have collected it locally.
While some of the blooms on the little guys are pretty cool, their propensity to sneak into nearby pots gets old pretty fast ....

I have quite a few, but I need to go out and take inventory again-- my collection has out-paced my growlist.
If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
actually quite a few are in the states, i have seen(ones with * i have actually had):
the only ones i aint sure about being in the states are unifolia, buntingiana and campbelliana....alpina is darn easy to come by if you look, asplundi a lil less so....the hybrids quelchii × praetermissa 'Jitka' and alpina x endressii are not to hard to find either if yah got decent trading material
Right now I have U. livida and U. sandersonnii.
