    I can send you some U. alpina in May.
    I'd love some if you have extra.



    Also I've seen people growing microcalyx, I have from seeds but they are doing nothing.

    U. warburgii is findable, its on my "why won't you grow" list. The portion I have may have added 1/8" over 6 months.

    I remember U. warburgii as being a fairly fast grower

    Well - mine seems to be in between these 2 extremes. I was tired of the moss & slime that was on the media so I started a 2nd pot with a top coating of a larger grit of sand. Has worked fairly well in keeping the nasty stuff at bay and the warburgii leaves have popped up through the sand all over the pot. However, it has yet to flower - although I'm hopeful that the warm weather will stimulate those urges....

    If you want a fast grower, get some U. graminifolia. That stuff is nuts! As RSS has noted elsewhere, it teleports...

    I've got to find a way to control U. sandersonii. It doesn't even wait to get potbound before sending out 'feelers' and unlike the other species, it can reach quite a ways....
    All the best,

    I never made that connection, but the ones growing in lower light are growing more in there pot then all over the place.
