    Tricolor in flower, now what. How do I get this to seed? SHould I cross it with another Utric? What a cool little flower. There is a second flower about ready to open.

    You could either effect self-pollination, or try to cross it with a related species if you have one flowering - something like U. praelonga or longifolia would be most likely to succeed, being closely related, or you could try any of the other South American large terrestrial/epiphytic species if you have them flowering.
    This is an article on pollination of Pinguicula - most of the information should also be relevant to Utricularia, which is closely related.

    WHAAAAAAT!!!!![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]? You FLOWERED U. tricolor?[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]??

    This is momentous, verging on the impossible, and I am green with envy!!!

    You should add "I flowered U. tricolor" to your signature line.

    Mine is not flowering. Scapes I got, flowers I don't got.

    Please consider me for a bit of your plant if you ever have enough to trade.

    Sigh.

    As soon as it is done flowering I will send you some. The first scape has a second flower. The second scape is getting tall, but no flower to be seen yet.

    The second flower is opening. It should be fully open tomorrow. The first flower is mauve. The second is mauve, but lighter than the first. The second scape is about 6 to 7" tall and thicker. flower is opening on it. The first scape is only a few inches tall and very thin.

    I know what the secret is, DUMB LUCK! I also keep the plant closer to the light.

    I see now why my U. tricolor won't flower. It's what comes from being 93 million miles from the light source. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
