    I see the same with my juvenile Nelumbifolia, it seems when the leaves achieve 1" or so in width, it fill's in the gap.
    I'll try to get a set of progression pic's tomorrow. I could use the entertainment of learning this new pooter!

    Just a quick updated pic of U. jamesoniana. Two of the lower flowers are both open so I figured I'd take it down for a few pics and try to pollinate w/ U. alpina (I don't think it worked since none of my 5 alpina flowers had any real pollen - go figure). However, it seems that each time I take the slab down I find a new stalk (now up to six). The first one was pollinated with pollen from U. asplundii and it has been acting like it 'took' - we'll see in a few weeks. In addition, I used some of the U. jamesoniana pollen to fertilize a U. asplundii - which also looks like it 'took'. a U. nephrophylla x U. alpina attempt also looks promising. Ironically, a U. asplundii x U. alpina attempt failed miserably...
    All the best,

    Not so much w/ james since they aren't really invasive. I do dislike how many the otherOrchidioides put out since they invade the other pots pretty quickly. I try to keep similar plants away from each other but it's tough. Overall, it's just part of growing utrics. Otoh, when I want more of the aerial roots for propagation (like with campby), there are none around.

    Here's a pic of my 1st harvest of U. jamesoniana seed (u. james x U. asplundii) that I collected on the 4th. The seeds are sitting on a 1mm grid (actually a bit less than 1 mm) - very much like dust. Here's some infertile U. asplundii seed for comparison and some very different U. nephrophylla seed.


    Potential good news on the U. james by alpina pollination attempt as both flowers quickly aborted their flowers after the cross. Now we get to wait & see what happens... Unlike with Sarrs or Neps, my attempts at crossing has shown these plants to be very idiosyncratic - many of the crosses fail & frequently at different points. Some ignore the pollen & pretend like it's not even there (ie: asplundii x alpina), some will produce seed that won't germinate (ie: asplundii (long lobe flower) x asplundii (short lobe flower)), some will self readily (ie: alpina (per buddy)), some will not self (ie: james (per buddy)), some will act like pollen was accepted & seeds are forming but have empty capsules (ie: alpina 'Pittier Moon' x asplundii iirc) and some will set seeds but much fewer than a normal pollination would produce (ie: nephro x nelumbifolia) & probably more permutations that my brain is not recalling - like the cross that produced U. 'Jitka' (quelchii x praetermissa) - produced viable seed & a healthy plant - but the plant is sterile (so far anyway).

    Let us know when the seeds germinate. That should be a really cool plant.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    asplundii x quelchii does not work either. for future reference.
