    Few things

    The sun was out today.. finally! So got a few pics of some other things in flower.
    U. blanchetii pink flower


    U. fulva (yay it's fulva time!)


    Couple Genlisia
    Er sad they don't look anything like the photos posted over at cpuk from the wild
    Anyway.. Guess this is supposed to be G. metalica what was formally Itacambria Beauty


    and this is what was formally sp. Cipo something something.. which I guess is now G. oligophylla. This one looks even less like the wild plant photo so who knows...It does have the little glandular hairs all the way around the edge of the flower parts which I thought was really neat.


    Enjoy!
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Can you show / describe how you're growing the U. fulva? Soil media, flood / "dry" schedule, anything else we need to know? I love the blooms and have it growing but it never blooms...

    I keep it wet all the time.. water almost to the soil level. Peaty sand mix, more peat than sand. This plant comes from the northern territories and grows/blooms in the wet season like the tuberous dews. In nature if I remember my research from Taylor correctly it grows as an annual, but you can keep it alive all year if you don't let it dry out.
    As such I am guessing you will need to give it short daylengths to see flowers. That's the only thing that really changes for this plant in my care and it flowers each Winter. (although it is a month later this year than the last time it flowered)

    How have you been keeping it and how has it been doing?

    I'm not sure how many years I've had it, maybe 2-3? For the first year or so I kept it in waterlogged - flooded LFS and it did fine then I moved it to peat & kitty litter mud sort of mixture kept waterlogged or flooded and it's really doing about the same there for the past year or so it spreads and grows but never makes blooms. I never remember to mess with the lighting hours so that may be it...

    What temps does yours experience? Mine are just normal indoor ambient temps + light heat so basically 75-85*F days and 70-75*F nights. Perhaps it should go in the HL Nep chamber in winter to cool down some?

    I can't wait for my Genlisea to flower. They look really unique
