    Some various progress shots...

    U. quelchii

    (you can see the sudden growth burst resulting from fertilizing in the shape of the one leaf, very obvious)I never have had the elongated immature leaves so many others have seen , but Nicole speaks of at least 3 variants.... so who knows)

    Now:


    U. nelumbifolia


    Now:

    (poor pic, disregard the U. reniformis leaves from the adjacent pot..)

    U. humboldtii - clone 1


    Now:


    U. endresii x U. alpina


    Now:


    This plant has not reacted well to the same feeding schedule. But to be honest it is also getting the least amount of light compared to the others (significant difference) So its ability to utilize the extra nutrients cannot be the same. Mea Culpa

    Excellent Utricularia guys! I'm starting to realize what the Orchidioides fever is all about!

    U. nephrophylla:


    U. endresii:


    U. humboldtii:


    U. nelumbifolia:


    and U. quelchii:


    and proof that im not killing it

    @amphirion - No, no, no...your giving your U. nephrophylla too much light . Reduce the light and you can get nice tall plants like these. My average stem is 1-1 1/2".

    They still flower just fine and are much Taller!!!

    @RSS: you jest, but i think you're on to something. your leaves are much more greener! mine has yet to flower. im also thinking about dividing it and placing it into a glass cube like the others. it takes way too much space.

    I've taken divisions from that planter and rooted them in that tank, moved them over to a higher light tank and the new growths started hugging the medium, and have yet to flower. The humidity is also lower in the high light area so that may have something to do with it also.

    One of my "someday" projects will be growing U. nephrophylla as a lithophytic.

    This article is available to ICPS members. All I needed to do was download a PDF copy of the correct issue; Carniv. Pl. Newslett. 37(3):68-74. Then I could read the entire article including the photos.
