    U. graminifolia

    I recently received a plug of U. graminifolia from one of our generous members. It's planted in a peat and sand mix with pure peat on the top 2 cm. I haven't noticed any noticeable growth since I've acquired it and the sphagnum is looking pretty brown. Is there still hope for this plant?

    Try flooding the pot from time to time.

    I grow this species under water for the cooler times of the year. Then in the summer months I let it grow as a terrestrial on top of flooded LFS. Mine is currently flowering.. so I must be doing something right.

    Keep it watered down real good and it should take right off.

    I grow mine in a little 2.5 gallon tank in flourite. I keep the water level with the flourite.

    I have found that mine took a long time to establish itself. (I took a my plug and divided it) Once it did. It takes right off. Mine sits on my bedroom windowsill. Easy!

    Before... February-ish





    Today..




    Good luck Wire man!

    That's an impressive difference! I guess I'm not keeping it wet enough. Time to go nearly submerge it. Thanks for the advice!

    I can't seem to get mine to flower. I have about a dozen of flower stalks with little buds, but they never bloom. I'll get some picks up soon.

    Hmmm - while U. graminifolia can be tough for some to coax into flower mode, I hadn't heard that it was big on aborting stalks.... However, otoh, U. subulata produces cleistogamous flowers frequently..... very suspicious...
    All the best,

    Wow this whole time I thought I had U. graminifloria, when I really had U. subulata. The leaf size looks more correct with subulata.
