    I got it in a trade, labeled as U. reniformis. That is all I know about it.

    Adalea, those were two different plants. The longifolia did not show any leaves, just the flower stalk.

    I always thought Aechmea species would be great for growing Utrics in. They have large tanks that hold copious amounts of water.

    Yes, normally every single bromeliad plant is stuffed with substrate from rotten leaves, it may be cases where there is not as much but it is what is normal, you guys should try to look for dead tree leaves and placing them inside your bromeliads, in the very crown, while they rot and the plant grows, they go to the smaller "puddles" that each leaf has, and now, when you see them filled with some kind of dirt inside, really brown, place a healthy utric inside the second set of leaves.

    I was wondering, what do people do with the runners that humboldtii makes? My plants are making a few runners, and one of them got to the top of the container, so I bent it back down into the substrate but it's not doing anything so far. Am I supposed to just let the runner grow naturally in the air to make a new plant? Or do they even produce new growth in cultivation?

    I have another plant in a plastic tub with more room, so I'm just letting that one grow freely.

    Also, what color are the bladders on humboldtii usually? They looked white when I got it, but I also have some stems that look like gibba. They are green and the bladders are pretty small. The person I received the plant from didn't say anything about keeping gibba, let alone giving it to me, but can anyone ID what the plant in the top right and bottom right of the pictures are?

    You may also be able to mimic this by stuffing lfs into the axils.

    @Tanukimo, I let the runners run. I figure that if they have made it to the surface themselves then they must have done so on purpose.
