    Excellent job, rattler. The subtle beauty of Utricularia. That's probably one of the most beautiful CPs I've seen in a while.

    Yes, PM is a significantly larger than normal clone and, by growing and flowering these seed out, Rattler has proven it to be a genetic giant and not just that the original plant was a fluke monster.

    This plant will self easily. Like most every alpina clone I have come across, it will even self pollinate without human intervention, though seed set will be higher when it gets helped along. One small word of warning for you Rattler, once you pollinate, the bloom will drop in about 24-48 hours, so enjoy it while it lasts.

    It will get much larger. Leaves regularly over 30cm long are normal for this clone.

    no freaking clue......did move it to a spot with a lil less light than the orginal spot but the regular alpina clone got moved too and didnt flower and it wasnt much of a change in light intensity, basically mover a few more inches away from the same sorta lights......i honestly thought it was still growing and not big enough yet to flower given the pics i have seen of the parent plant......

    thanks for chiming in Pyro.....

    think my humidity peaks at 60% unless water gets spilled or leaks over the basement floor but those are accidents and not often......should always be above 35% in my setup.....im sure it could handle lower if acclimated, the leaves are fairly thick and tough even in the smaller clones if not grown to soft....
