    The flower opened this past weekend but I figured I'd wait a bit for it to fully open & see if it changed. Today, I snapped a few quick shots just in case....

    U. nephrophylla x U. reniformis f. courte



    Neither really captures the very light blue that I'm seeing with my eyes. If I get some time, I'll try again this weekend (or whenever I can).

    For comparison, here's a previously-posted pic of U. nephrophylla x U. nelumbifolia

    The color still isn't correct but at least it's not as gray as the earlier ones ...

    My U. alpina x endresii was looking a bit rough and has been in the same container for some years... So I decided to get it repotted. Along the way, I found the plants that were in there seem to be chugging along just fine. (So I ended up repotting one that the LFS had mushed up so much the pot was half empty the other I left.) The best looking plant (on the surface) had the least amount of surprises under the media.

    Wow - it's been almost 3 months since anyone has added to this thread - that's kinda sad.

    I know this is premature, but today when I was watering my plants I noticed a stalk starting to emerge from ... (drum roll please) ... U. campbelliana. This plant is growing on treefern and was 'seeded' with a tiny sprig of campby in August of 2012 (which makes it younger than the one that was in last year's NASC auction). The stalk is along the bottom - approx 1/3 from the right.

    Here's hoping that it keeps developing.

    In addition to this, there is a U. humboldtii stalk that is quite advanced and a possible hybrid stalk just emerging (U. alpina x U. asplundii - although I'm doubtful on this one).
    ++++++
    Update Feb 4
    U. campbelliana now has 5 stalks emerging - amazing - when it rains it pours (thankfully in a good way this time)

    Your Campy is looking good Ron and good luck with the flower

    My Campy on a sponge is spreading quite fast, with it putting out runners to explore new places:





    One of the leaves has developed under water:

    Nice results mobile. I was about to buy some of those high tech slabs, but a few sponges are an easier resource for me. What else do you grow on them?
