    UTRICULARIA LONGIFOLIA {{{{{{{{{{{{{{THUD}}}}}}}}}}}}}}.

    Pyro, it must have been your visit that did the trick!! We must have looked right at this and didn't see it! The scape is about 4 inches tall! So, I think I have a handle on this: compacted stolons and a real good nightime drop in temp. Grow them in smaller diameter containers, and if you need a sweater at night, they will be happy. Mine stayed evenly wet: no variation there at all. It is the white flowered form, and I have never seen it!!! This is a Tepui species I believe. My pulse is pounding. This is a real CP moment for me, folks! Of course, the scape will now abort, I realize this. But, for awile, I can bask in the glory of the moment, right?

    That's nice to hear. I've only grown longifolia for a short time, but so far have been amazed by how quickly it grows (of course, I also have it with relatively cool nights). Good luck with the scape.

    Tamlin,

    My U. longifolia has also produced a scape - unfortunately it is a fast grower and grew right up into the lights. I have moved it out some but not sure if it will flower now or not.

    You may want to keep an eye on it, it went from around 4" to 8" in a couple of days.

    cheers

    Great news Tamlin, U. longifolia is close to the top of my list of plants to get this year.

    I'm almost as ecstatic about the appearance of a flower scape on my Genlisea violacea 'Giant', I look proudly at it several times a day and can't wait for the flower to open. This is my first plant from this genus, I want more! Thanks to the all guys on this forum who recommended this plant as an easy Genlisea to start with, and a big thanks to the guy who sent me a small cutting (you know who you are! )

    Cheers

    Vic

    My alpina appears to be putting up a stalk as well. Does it only bloom once a year, or year round? I've only had it a few months - I was expecting this to take years!
