    I have two little colonies of U. pubescens. One is growing in pure dead LFS, and the other is in milled LFS and sand 1:1. Both colonies started flowering at the same time, but the flowers look slightly different:

    U. pubescens

    Pure LFS


    LFS:Sand


    In addition two U. blanchetii colonies started spamming flowers too. I am very surprized that this tiniest of all utrics I have (leaves-wise) makes flowers as large as any:




    Thank you Ron for these wonderful plants

    And last but not least a traditional shot of angry/evil bunnies!
    This is a little colony I started in peat:turface mix after noticing that is grows very poorly in LFS:sand mix. It started with one flowerstalk and now is slowly taking over the pot with other plants in it.






    P.S. I apologize for the low quality.

    Gill_za,

    Congrats on all the flowers! I really liked U. blanchetii due to the unique foliage but it never grew very well for me. Looks like it's giving you a ton of flowers.

    Is the U. pubescens flower a one-off or do all of the blooms from that pot omit the center spot?

    Your last bunny (last pic - center) is definitely of the 'angry' variety. Beware - they may be gathering their numbers for an attack ...
    All the best,
    Ron

    Hi Ron,

    So far that colony only produced one flower stalk (and only one flower was open). I will put more pictures when there will be more flowers.

    Well, I've had a reminder to post some flower pics since September 25, 2011 - I'm just a tad behind ...

    U. alpina 'Pittier Moon'
    I had a lot of difficulty trying to 1) get the exposure correct (tough with white flowers) & 2) allowing for some perspective --- these flowers were huge! The first pics are just the flowers - then I add my hand for some idea of size. The top two flowers are fully open - the others are still opening ...





    Interestingly, all of these pics were re-sized to 800 pixels wide before I uploaded to photobucket ...

    .... on a different note, I can tell spring is near because my windowsill U. longifolia is sending up some stalks .....
    All the best,
    Ron

    really hard to get those ethereal translucent shots--- although you seemed to capture the effect very well with the shots that have your hand in them.

    beautiful flowers Ron! amazing work!
