    I cut some sponge type material (seed starting sponges I had) to act as wick, and added tree fern fiber into the main pot.

    Interesting enough it is 2 years old, I constucted this thing back in Jan 14. What it looked like back then.

    Few more photos of the growing up phase can be found here Looking for Utric/Genlisea suggestions for underwater growth display

    Does this look like Utricularia cornigera?


    This is what I assume is Utricularia reniformis (smaller leaves):


    I seem to recall one of the differences being the angle of the incision into the leaf, but I'm not sure about the specifics.

    For those who have not found the thread (Changes) Ron is off exploring the world and hopefully having a good time in the process.

    One of the last things he asked me to do was to grow a hybrid he intended to name, at the time he asked me not to post any info or photos of the plant or its flowers (back in 2014). He even would not give me the cross info . Since I have been unable to contact him and I know he was always a big fan of sharing information and plants I intend to do as he has so many times in the past.

    If it was not for Ron and his generosity I would never have gotten into CPs and have always felt I should follow in his footsteps. That said I plan on sending out a few cutting of this hybrid sometime this year. It just started flowering and I want to allow it to finish before I send off the first division. Last year I had a completely different flower and want to allow the second flower stalk to develop for comparison. Since this is a new hybrid it is very likely I have 2 different seed grow plants from Ron's cross in the same container. I have kept this plant isolated from the rest of my Utrics so there is no cross contamination.

    Here is how the flower looks this morning. If it opens up anymore I'll get more photos.

    For the time being I will be referencing it as Utricularia 'RL' for the sake of consistency.

    I'm excited to join the orchioides club. I got a starter plug of U. humboldtii 2 months ago and found the first new leaf growing this morning. It had been visibly spreading low in the (transparent) pot prior to this.

    Here is the flower as of this morning, I'd say almost completely opened if not completely opened.

    Nowhere near as good as the previous post but here is Utricularia nelumbifolia x reniformis. Got it as Utricularia nelumbifolia, but alas, that species still eludes me.

    That's beautiful! Are you just growing them in LFS?
