    What are some temperate Utricularia, that can grow along side some D. rotundifolia, D. anglica, P. vulgaris, P. villosa, and If I can find any either this year, or early next spring, some cold temperate D. intermedia...

    Basically, my stipulations are as follows: must be temperate, must have some sort of leaf shape, ie, not grassy, and it hopfully, should be able to grow, and flower along side those plants...Oh, and uh, it should be terrestrial... thanks!!!

    You are limited as far as terresterial temperate species go: There is cornuta and the closely related juncea that might fufill your desires. Most of the temperate species are aquatic though.

    Ok, thanks alot Tamlin... BTW, welcome back, I hope your honeymoon was great (I hope I'm not welcoming you back too late, how embarassing:P)!!!

    Yes, like I said, There are only going to be pings, and dews, so I only need one or two species of utric... I just thought they would be nice to have shoot up a few little flowers, and I suppsoe a natural way to keep fungus gnat populations down, but the pings, and dews will take good care of that... It will only be a small, ten inch or so pot...

    Are either of the species you mentioned easy to find? How about care for? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Thanks!!!

    The care is as simple as all the other terrestrial species. As for a source, I cant recommend any: the plants I have are recently acquired as a gift. Maybe next season I will have some to spare, although I believe my clone is the southern variety and may not take a hard long freeze that your other temperates will require.

    Haven't had this conversation before?

    Resupinata and subulata (groan.) also grow in cold climates. Nothing that fits your leaf requirement though.

    Hmm... Well if they look grassy...

    Well Basically, I've been starting to not mind the grassy look, but if I'm gonna have all these plants amongst eachother, I'm not sure I want some spikes shootting up between, say, my D. anglica leaves, u know?

    If thats all there is though.... I think subulata might be interesting to have... I mean. Its always flowering, right? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Thanks. ^_^

    Subulata is always flowering, but the usual form of the flowers is cleistogamous (literally: closed room) meaning the flowers are not often the opening form. Still, in appearance it would probably meet your requirements, and the flowers when they are produced are very pretty. Just remember its weedy nature, and don't be tempted to use any outdoor moss in your pots (or soil, or transplants from outdoors to indoors) and it should behave itself for you. Outdoors.
