    what the heck is this plant doing? I know it has a single flower stock. and I know it is growing... but why all the other things up in the air? don't they usually expand under ground?

    They will sometimes do this, especially in high humidity. It looks like U. sandersonii - is it the "blue flower" variety? I found that variety was much more likely to grow in this fashion.

    i don't know about blue flower but it is a blue according to the name... U. sandersonii "blue" is how it was labled. i would assume that is right. the guy i got it from says he has never seen much a diff from blue and the regular one. do you have a picture of each that shows the difference?
    thanks,

    It looks very healthy! I had this type of growth in my substrate terrarium back in the 70's. Moss had grown up the glass of the tank over the decade and a half I maintained it. Once the moss was established, the U. sandersonii followed the moss, and grew all up the sides of the tank. When it flowered, there must have been a hundred flowers. I will never forget it. Your plant looks very happy, I think you have a touch for this genus!

    Looks like you will have some trade material soon (rubs hands together, twitches and drools)

    My 'blue' does that too. I figured it was just a peculiarity to the species.

    I have been growing both the 'regular' and 'blue' forms of U. sandersonii for several years. My 'regular' form flowers profusely and the leaves are about 3 times larger than my 'blue' form. My 'blue' form flowers rarely. I find both to be easy growers and rapidly fill their pots. I see little difference in flower color, size, or shape of my two forms; both are a pale blue, although perhaps the 'blue' form is a bit darker blue. The main difference between the two is in leaf size and ease of flowering.
