    The various colors and patterns are so striking to me, that it was worth the wait - sure wish I could get some better pics. As you can see, another flower should open soon so maybe I'll try again ...
    That one has never bloomed for me. But I do have it indoors and it needs to be moved outside to where it will be exposed to the cold and what ever seasonal change i have. So in theory this one is still a possible for me .

    OTOH U. welwitschii is outside and has never bloomed for me at all. Guessing I might not have enough cold or something.....

    What are your conditions for the U. warburgii? Mines is growing like mad but no flowers yet.

    That's the one with the amazingly long flower stalks that go up, then fall over & up again. Of the ones I grew, that was one of the few that looked like it would self seed (ovaries swelled up so I cut the stalks after flowering - didn't wait for possible nightmare). They flowered almost constantly in my basement.

    Other than tricolor, this one has been my problem child. I think I just out-waited it. I grew it for over 1.5 years in my basement with my other utrics where it had a summer & winter photoperiod & it refused to flower. I moved it upstairs to my office where the lighting is constant (~13.5 hrs) & it flowered. I'd mostly given up for a while - semi-planned to try some periodic flooding to change things up (but never got around to it). The other day I was cutting all of the U. sandersonii "white" stalks that had flopped over several other plants (amazing - that one) when I just happened to notice the warburgii flower hidden in the white mass. Maybe that was it, it got upset when it got all crowded from the sandersonii ---

    This are from a two or three years ago. I finally got around to having the film developed and scanned.

    .... and here's the latest attempt. At least both horns are visible on the top flower (as he lets out massive DSLR-envy sigh):

    U. warburgii is too cool for words. How did you induce flowering?
