    Greenhouse surprise

    Yesterday yielded a surprise while watering. I had lost the tag, but now I know! Do you?

    Yep.

    All my Utrics were having a hard time, until I started watering from above. Now they're all growing very well.

    So they are in drained cups?

    I'd like to say I had a gramminifolia flower but all I can say is, my sphagnum ate my gramminifolia! LOL

    I grow mine in un-drained containers. I usually keep them very wet and partially submerged. Media is a peat sand mix (1:1)

    Yeah that blue is amazing!

    I hope I'm able to resurrect my U. gramminifolia culture and get it to bloom someday. I have a nephrophylla that's been working on a stalk for what seems like weeks now, it will only be the second Utric I've had bloom.

    I'm still wondering what Katie means by top watering. My cultures are OK but some seem to have stalled now and aren't doing much. Most of my smaller Utrics are in undrained deathcubes and get reflooded as the water levels drop below the surface but perhaps there's a way to charge them up? Has anyone ever misted their Utrics with mild urea free orchid fertilizers? Is deeper substrate better than shallower?

    Edit:
    while trying to pinch some remains of my U. gramminifolia from under the sphagnum in the crab tank to restart it, I managed to actually capture a baby vampire crab (apx 1/32" - 1/16" leg span)! Now I have two projects for the evening! LOL
