    Wooooah, wait a minute there Spec.....I *did* flower U. tricolor back in 1976: 6 scapes worth by golly, and I am still bragging about it, hee hee!!! I used the Copper method, pure dumb luck as it was the first time I had grown it, go figure. Back then I didn't realize how difficult it was to flower this species, so that must be the key.

    Another species that I can't seem to get to flower is U. pubescens, although many claim it is not difficult. I think the plant senses my fear.

    I think that many problems people have getting "diffiicult" species to flower could be solved by the purchase of a greenhouse.

    Possibly, but U. tricolor hasn't flowered yet in my greenhouse, despite growing quite happily.

    I believe it is the enharmonic vibrations of Copper's Karmic Flux that has done the deed, or possibly the close proximity of Mars. Science fails with this species. I really thought I had it figured out with growing it nearly dry. I got many scapes, some even have little "leaves" on the scape, but although they do not wither away, neither do they produce buds, although I continue to hope since they dont have blackened ends on the scapes.

    I was looking forward to my first u. tricolor flower opening a few weeks back (Easter, I think), in the container it was sharing with U. gibba and D. intermedia. A really healthy-looking stalk, with a nice fat ud on the end. Unfortunately, it opened into U. lateriflora, so somewhat disappointing. Has anyone tried U. tricolor really wet?
