    My humboldtii never makes leaves like that. The paddled shaped leaves are the size of my hand, and the fern-like ones are only a few inches long.

    Charlie, I'm assuming what you bought as Utricularia has long grass-like leaves then. Would you mind posting a picture?

    U. Humboldtii.

    I pulled off all the dead foliage. The long leaves were only (at the most) 3 inches long.

    By long leaves, do you mean the paddle-shaped leaves on long stems? I'm having a hard time distinguishing the plant from the moss in your picture.

    The main crown is at about the top of the picture.

    thanks for sharing the picture, im interested in seeing its growth, keep us updated on it. For now based on those small leaves, it looks like what i had purchased online from them a while back as humboldtii which produced grass leaves and nothing bigger than those paddles like leaves u have on there. I never wanted to make a big deal since CC is reputable , yet I had second thoughts about it being humboldtii go figure, maybe its a mutated clone? or a hybrid clone? Wierd enough I also do recall seeing a U. tricolor clone that makes grass leaves and its regular leaves, altho the normal clone only produces short kidney leaves.
