    What are your conditions for the U. sandersonii blue?

    I have been reading recently the same thing that blue is tough to flower, so it looks like I should mimic your growing conditions with my incoming blue plant.

    Far as I know I'm not doing anything seriously special. However, it's in the same greenhouse that all of the Mexican butterworts and Australian winter growing plants are, so it gets major temperature swings from 90's F in summer to 40's-60's in winter, and it's nearly always kept waterlogged.

    Sounds like the conditions I have in my tank, just without as many fluctuations in temperature. Unless it prefers those temperature swings, it sounds like I can keep mine good with just waterlogged soil.

    Thanks, h!

    It'll certainly grow fine in just about any condition. Mine is in about a 4" wide cup, and is 5 deep in stolons and leaves, with feelers going out every which way. I have nly had it flower like this a couple times before, though I feel I must note it happens usually late winter/early spring.

    Ahh, so it is possible this year there won't be any flower pay-off, but it will make next late winter/early spring that much more fun to look forward to!

    Here's to a lucky flower this early spring!

    Shout out to Maiden: here's what the U. calcyfida have been doing for the past couple months:


    Still have a bunch of seeds I have yet to plant too, and around 16-17 individual clones in this pot alone. If I plant the rest, I may have to start going wholesale on these guys....
