    Randall,
    Beautiful pics of your U. asplundii! Don't you love how the colors get darker toward the edges to create an outline for the flower?
    All the best,
    Ron

    It really is a nice clone you sent me. A lot of the other asplundii flower photos out there are just plain by comparison. It actually looks better in person. For how easy it is to grow its on my short list of keepers when I have to downsize again. I added it to a vivarium a while back and its finally starting to expand out some, I need to add more light for it and I've bought LEDs for it twice...but I keep using them for other things.

    I really hate random mosses...

    That is one HUGE humboldtii paddle you have there, WoW! Those photos will actually help me out a lot on two of the projects I'm working on.

    I find it really interesting that so many of us end up growing these plants in much the same way. Here is a quelchii but the concept is really similar to what you built. Its only been in there 3-4 months but initial results are promising.

    This should looks really neat in a month or three.

    Here is my original "proof of concept" Utric from many years ago, it was a tiny section of quelchii when I moved it in there. Tall net pot inside a solo cup with a sphagnum wall for the Utric to live on. Probably 1/4"-3/4" of water in the bottom cup at all times. I've NEVER changed this water, I have emptied some of it out over the years but never more than a 50% change and I'm talking about once to twice a year. I've revised this further by adding a smaller net pot inside the taller one, the extra pot seems to help. I really think this is the way to go if you wanted to mass produce a lot of these Utrics. You could drill a hole at the desired water level and just mist them once a week, remove the top net pot for packing/shipping and replace with a new net pot. There would be enough material in the bottom taller net pot to reseed the new pot.

    The entire outside edge of the net pot has leaves like this, there is a lot more plant is there than the I can show in a photo.

    Beautiful pictures, especially of the humboldtii. I hope mine is able to flower someday. The quelchii bladders look like they are arranged so orderly.

    Although it seemed to take forever and a day, my U. campbelliana has finally started to open flowers - this is the start & there are many more on the way (hopefully they keep on opening - LOL).

    I've included two pics - one from an iPhone & one from a Panasonic. While I took many images when I had the plant out, most did not look like what I was seeing with my eyes. These two are fairly close to reality. Either way - you get the idea - they were worth the wait (iPhone 1st)

    All the best,
    Ron
