    That's definitely subulata. They'll occasionally open a flower, a very tiny flower. My graminifolia is now partially submerged. Let's hope it responds.

    Hopefully it pulls through. I'll let you know if it kicks the bucket. How tough are these things?

    I have received a plug of U. graminifolia from Ron and planted it in 50:50 peat : silica sand 2" pot that is constantly kept in 1cm of water. This Utric is the one that shows the most growth out of all in my case

    I think it's definitely dead. The sphagnum is white and stringy.

    I grow mine in a little 2.5 gallon tank in flourite. I keep the water level with the flourite.
    How deep is your medium? I got a small plug from Jimscott several years ago and I put it in a 4 inch deep pot with sand and peat as the substrate. It did well until moss start overtaking it. I pulled out the moss but it came back. Then it started growing out the drain holes. I tried keeping the water level up to the surface of the media but it still prefers growing out the drain holes. It has flowered for me several times, out the drain holes. I even took a cutting from the drain holes and repotted it on the surface - no go.

    I gave a cutting away and the grower says it prefers to grow as an aquatic with 22 inches of water underneath being optimal.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    It's about 4 inches deep. It doesn't look like it rooted into the medium at all.

    substrate depth varies between 1 to 2 inches. It has a slight slope at one end that is why you can see pooling of water in the pic I provided. I hope that helps

    I was going to use it as a mini planted tank, in fact all the pump/filters and co2 equipment still sits unopened. I liked the way it was looking and never started submersing the utric. Perhaps one day.
