    mine dont flower.....prolly because my conditions are so stable.....its been suggested that if i let them dry out some they should flower......they are in the basement and temps fluctuate between 60 and 80 but its rare to see outside that........usually see a 10-15 degree change in temps from night to day as the lights warm it up and i like to sleep cool and they are in the basement where i sleep....

    I wonder if I could take them outside for the next 6 months, or at least split the colony.

    I think i'll try that. Probably should do the same with U. longifolia and a few other things.

    im pretty sure i could be tried for hate crimes in some countries for some of the stuff i did to U. tricolor in the past trying to get the SOB to bloom......if you have a pot of Utrics that is growing good but not flowering after being in your care for a decent length of time.....take a division, get it established and happy than proceed to torture the hell out of it to get it to bloom while leaving one pot in the conditions where it is growing fine for back up......its what i have usually done in the past.....just have had to much going on to try it recently with my Orichidioides.....

    Switch up the photocycle and tweak the moisture levels in the media in the same cycle as the lights and you'll get them to flower.

    I do have the plants on timers, to roughly resemble the photoperiod. I do add water when there's next to nothing. Sometimes, some plants react to the change in water levels - like D. slackii. A at least the longifolia finally wants to flower, it seems.
