    U. blanchetii

    Hey everyone,

    This is U. blanchetii, a very nice Utric, that is flowering very nicely I'd like to share some pictures:





    Sorry for the bad pics, but the flowers are quite small.

    So is this an easy utric? I'd love one once I organize my collection...

    It does pretty well in my terra as you can see. I flood its undrained pot, it seems to like that. Although I hear you to have to repot terrestrial Utrics oftenly.

    You have to repot them often, because supposedly, they take up all the nutrients in the soil and die out.

    When I got them, they had a clump of the vendor's media which looked like peat. All i did was put the clumps in some plain dead LFS.

    I had a pot of U. sandersonii in a pot of peat : perlite 1:1, and it grew a thick lush matt, then the center started to die and it spread out to the edge.

    I have a pot of U. sandersonii, undrained, in LFS 100%, it was slow to take over, but it seems to be growing fine now. I flood occasionally with pond water to fertilize.


    Hope this helps!

    Hmmm, according to Professor Wikipedia, this is a lithophytic species (it grows on rocks). Makes sense that repotting it into fresh soil helps it grow, since it would have nutrients constantly brought to it by streams nearby in its habitat...
