    Absolutely spectacular Ron! Truly one of the marvels of the genus.

    .... or a bit closer:

    do you remember what time of year they bloomed for you? I am guessing they are seasonal. Now that mine has filled out some wondering if it will bloom...

    I did some pollinating on 04.26.14 & 05.04.14. Sorry - I don't remember when they started to open. I planted seeds on 06.25.14. The only real seasonal clues mine get are temps - basement lighting doesn't move.

    Both plants that flowered last year are much larger now. It'll be interesting to see if they flower again.

    U. endresii just dropped it's flower a few days ago & U. praetermissa was a few weeks before that. Both U. asplundii clones are sending up stalks (& one feral asplundii is flowering now in another tank). I'd really like to see some of the U. humboldtii flower again (one with a stalk over 4' & a constant succession of flowers).
    All the best,
    Ron

    .... & another not represented in this thread:

    U. nephrophylla x nelumbifolia

    Not as striking as the campby (duh) & I didn't bother to hide the background clutter but I still love the bulging eyes ...
    - also check out the subtle differences with the earlier nephro hybrid - U. nephrophylla x reniformis

    That is quite an eye catcher, the slight tinge of purple is very pleasant and really attractive
