    Thank you very much. The Colombia clone is in pure nz lfs with a wick of sphag out the bottom of its container, that sits on an empty net put, in a tray of water




    The amuri come is in a mix of peat and coarse quartz sand

    That's quite an ingenious setup, thanks for sharing!

    I can't take credit for the wick idea, If I remember right it was a member on tf that came up with that idea. Your more than welcome.

    That's impressive. Never heard of this species being able to grow on a windowsill and much less flowering. Congrats!

    Cheers, yeah I haven't heard anyone doing it before either, not in the northern hemisphere. I grow all my orchioides utrics, heli's, drosera, cephalotus in fact everything on windowsills. I abandoned terrarium growing 2 or the years ago and haven't looked back.

    That's my plan too, though I do use grow lights for most plants since I have pretty heavily shaded windows for the most part.

    Would be great to see some pics of your plants and setup if poss? Just remembered that I got the idea of the wick from a post by Pyro.

    Here's a few pics of jamesoniana Colombia clone



    And one of the amuri tepui clone for comparison

    Really nice to see some of the subtle differences between these two clone!
    Really like the stronger and more defined colour in the Colombia clone!

    I selfed the Colombia clone and the seed pod has expanded. The pod is now starting to dry out, just waiting for it to start to split and then I'll be able to see if any seed has been produced, hopefully if there are seed in the pod they will be viable!

    I've been growing U. jamesoniana for some time and recently thought I had lost it. When I first grew it, it was in coarse peat and moss (not sphagnum) in a jar and I noticed it tended to prefer to grow at the base, where it was wetter. That culture started to fail due to poor air circulation so I repotted it onto a netted car cleaning sponge, again in a jar but with a fan this time, and again it grew very well at the base where it was wet. Eventually I divided it and repotted what I kept into a more traditional peat, bark and moss mix but it didn't perform well in this and I thought I had lost it. In a last ditch attempt to save it I repotted the tiny bit I had left into milled/chopped NZ sphagnum moss, for which Mark (carnigrower01) gave me the idea, and keep the base of the pot in water so that the moss stays wet. The plant has now started to grow quite quickly, producing two new leaves in approximately two weeks it has been repotted. The obvious conclusion is that this species likes it wet, which I find a little surprising given its natural epiphytic habit. I've posted a picture below but given the size it's a little difficult to get focus. The purple colour leaf in the middle is the one I transplanted which had a couple of short stolons and the green ones either side are those that have developed in the two weeks.
