    Keep em coming! I really like U. dichotoma- especially since they are tuberous. Not sure why that is so cool to me but it is :s

    Tuberous? I had not heard of this being one of the tuberous species. That would imply it goes dormant, and mine is a constant grower. I also have it in a clear cup, so I can see huge purple bladders, but no sign of anything remotely like a tuber, ever.

    Okay, I see now. There are 2 forms of this species then. I'm guessing either mine is the non-tuberous form, or because I never let it dry out it doesn't have to produce them. I feel like an experiment may be needed after they flower.

    Yeah I have kind of gotten that impression- the whole two forms thing. That seems really weird to me but I have seen comments to that effect. Seems like quite a morphological difference within a single species.

    So I finally got around to taking some more pics of this plant, I've got like 15 active flower stalks in a cup only 3 inches wide, and about 5 open flowers.....



    I definitely think for this plant the secret to the flowers is to keep the plant submerged for a few weeks, then let the water level drop off for a bit, before flooding it again....
