    Unidentified grassy leaved Orchidioides Utric.

    I have this "unidentified" Orchidioides section Utricularia which seems to be doing quite well in intermediate conditions. Here are some pics:








    And because someone will say it, here is a pic of my U. praelonga coming back after a change in location (along with some volunteer D. sp. "jacoby" seedlings)




    So does anyone else have this grassy leaved Orchidioides sp.? Any clue as to species or maybe a pic of the flower? Mine is starting to climb the twig along with the moss so If I get enough I will try it mounted in a vivarium on a mossy branch.

    yeah i saw that on his sale list as well.
    could be more of a hybrid than a species.
    i suspect parentage using Utricularia endresii and/or jamesoniana

    Why do you think it is an Orchidioides? Have you seen tubers?

    How vigorous is it? Do you flood it occasionally?

    endresii leaves aint all that much thinner than a standard alpina......praelongia is the only thing i can think of with leaves like that, when i grew it it put out leaves that long....

    Jeff the only thing I can say is that it was sold as "Unidentified Orchidioides section, grassy leaves". I really don't know any more than that - that's why I'm askin'!

    I got it as a very small piece maybe 5 leaves and a few roots. It grows at a speed comparable to longifolia I suppose if I were to compare it to something. I would say my praelonga is slower than whatever this is. I do occasionally flood it to moss level, let it sit a day or two then dump out the excess water and basically just keep the moss/habitat very moist & humid.

    Does anybody have a form of U. praelonga that has small leaves that stand up? Mine lay flat against the soil and are pretty wide and blunt ended (see last pic). Whatever this is the short leaves stand up and are skinnier and have pointy tips. I don't have any of the long praelonga leaves currently due to moving the plant to a new location (from outside to in) but IIRC praelongas are rounded (terete) and grow very long (like 1-2 feet) the long leaves on this thing are flat like a ribbon and not nearly as long - only about 7".

    the praeloga i grew had two leaves, ones that were shorter and held close to the soil and ones that got 5 or 6 inches long and were held vertical like grass.....

    every orchidioides ive grown has had leaves fairly close to alpina.....may have been smaller or narrower or wider or whatever but they all had a paddle shape.....
