U. sandersonii typical
U. sandersonii blue flower
ok so these are the plants i was given , i got them yesterday i was so excited .
i spent all morning and day looking for info on how to take care of them , and it's VERRY confuseing!!!! heh
well i've read that U.dichotoma needs to be grown semi aquatic , as in water should be up to the leaves on top of the peat/pearlite .
but what about the other ones ?
i've also read that U. longifolia needs "live Long fibered sphagnum peat" , becasue it grows that way in the wild .
right now i have all of them in small plastic pots , submerged in rain water .
the potting medium is 5o - peat/ 5o - pearlite .
is this a good soil for them ?
i also have them 4 inches from my florecent grow lights , 15W cool and warm light .
i will be going out later today to get some LfS for the U. longifolia . and possibly some silica sand . if it's a good price .
also i should mention that i know nothing about U. monanthos .
oh and the U.sandersonii has some flowers on it , should i cut them off to encorage stollon and blader growth ? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
