    update

    All of the plants have settled in and show growth...
    They only had one or two small leafs when they arrived so I think they are doing well

    U. quelchii
    2 leaves upon arrival, now 8-12 and getting larger


    U. nelumbifolia
    one small leaf upon arrival, now aerial stolons and new much larger leaf


    U. humboldtii - clone 1
    one leaf upon arrival, well this one is very obvious... exponential growth


    U. endresii x U. alpina
    one small leaf on arrival, now two larger leaves
    (the newest leaf looks odd, chemical damage like. I think I must have got some fert on it)



    U. humboldtii - broad leaf - Cerro Neblina
    (no pic)
    This one I need to transplant, I left it in live sphag to cover my bets... but its growth has lagged way behind the others.

    Totally went over my head there, dude. Very nice utrics you have there though.

    The feeler my nelumbi sent out and I redirected to another pot of water with lfs for show has sent out root thingies already - should I wait to cut it from the mother plant until it has an umbrella-leaf grown in?
