    I don't know whether gradient is the 'key', but I know I like the concept. If you can keep the plant happy enough to stay alive & spread, it should find it's happy zone. So far the strongest/largest concentration of my largest (& oldest) U. jamesoniana colony on treefern is at the bottom where the sprayed water naturally accumulates. Actually, as I think about it, my 2nd established colony is also strongest at the bottom (as he runs down to snap a quick pic).

    I have found it odd that the jamesoniana likes it wetter than the establishing moss. The original, small root/rolon of james was placed just above the uppermost visible piece of utric (~1.2 inch above the very visible bottom section). It migrated down before going anywhere else (establish a reliable source of water before expanding?). Now if I can just get the campbelliana established in another location ....

    Amp - beautiful U. asplundii!

    It looks like the hybrid U. nephrophylla x U. nelumbifolia has inherited some of it's mom's floriforous nature. The larger plant is sending up stalks 2 & 3 and the smaller plant is sending up it's 2nd stalk. Hopefully, I'll be able to get at least one in-focus & true-to-life colors pic from them (edit: just added a current pic to bottom of post). Although I'm not too fond of hybrids in general, this plant's cool flowers, hybrid vigor and nice medium size give it a lot of positives.

    My U. praetermissa finally popped it's flowers -- but the 1st two were all screwy. The 3rd one is at least not obviously deformed but it's also not a good representation of the species (missing the middle ridge).



    The 2nd stalk of the U. reniformis f. courte also opened some blooms and my pics this time are much closer to the real color than the earlier ones.



    Current, in situ pic of U. nephrophylla x U. nelumbifolia (I love the bulging, bloodshot 'eyes')

    I have bloomed my first macro utric. It's U. nelumbifolia i received from Ron (RL7836). I got the plant in Oct. of 2011 and have it sitting on an east facing window. My U. nelumbifolia took seven weeks from the time i first saw the bud to it opening. Jack
