    Hey Jaie and Phil,

    Will you guys be offering any utrics in the (near) future?
    Seems like the only genus that you guys left out;)
    Epiphytic varieties and others would be nice.

    It sure would be good to see U. alpina reproduced by the magic of PFT. This species is quite rare in the U.S., although not the easiest to care for. U. sandersonii is easier, and the prolific flowers are most amazing. It is also a great beginners plant. I think Utricularia are wonderful plants, and deserve to be in more collections.

    I agree. How about sandersonii? It would be good to release around Easter because of the rabbitlike flowers.

    My vote is in! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I've seen Utric pictures, but I still dont really know what they look like... I mean, i think it looks like grass, but with round oval type leaves instead of thread like... and small snap dragon like flowers on top. They eat underground, or underwater... thats all...

    There are different varieties of utric. Some with grass like leaves, while others have more oval leaves. Just because they eat underwater does not mean that you cannot see their trap. Epiphytic utrics like U.humboldtii have 1/4in traps with flowers that are 2in.

    Hi Guys,

    We have very little utrics here... and most were acquired by trade.

    We thought about seeing how they would sell, but it's tough to know exactly HOW to sell these little guys... or even trade for that matter.

    So we have some really nice flowering Utrics (can't remember the type)... that you may see come up for sale.

    Parasuco, Utricularia are a very spectacular and varied species. Some have leaves that are like tiny blades of grass pressed tightly to the soil whilst others have little oval shaped leaves. A few species have larger round leaves, whilst the tropical epiphytic species have large leaves shaped like umbrellas (reniformis) or like canoe paddles (Humboldtii). Below are a couple of photo's of Utricularia Praelonga. A larger very easy to grow species which I find grows best in pure sphagnum moss. The grass like leaves reach lengths of about 7 inches and the plant has very long stems with bright yellow flowers. In winter it dies right back underground.
    1) 'leaves'

    2) Bladders
