    Great photo Vic- Lovely flower [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    What are the conditions you are now using?

    I have a typical form which I have had for 15 years now, and it has flowered just the once in 1996 [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    I have quite it under identical conditions in the hope of further flowers- no sign. Just loads of lovely leaves. I gather the typical form is even shyer to flower- is that correct?

    As the plant is containered in a large 18" wide container I am wondering whether to split it up. Though I have read that it likes to remain undisturbed [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Any clues [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img]

    cheers

    Hi Bill

    I detailed my growing conditions for this plant in a thread a couple of weeks ago U. reniformis 'small form' thread.

    I was always under the impression that the larger, typical form was easier to flower than the smaller ones, I've certainly seen plenty of them in flower in other collections. I does prefer a larger container though, I've only had mine a year and will probably move it into a larger basket when it fills it's current one.

    Hi Vic
    Interesting thread [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    I grow mine under very similar container/watering/temp conditions. And when it DID flower I guessed I had got the mix right. But no more flowers since [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
    I had always gathered that the smaller version was easier to get to flower, but perhaps those people had simliar problems to me! I will be interested to see how long before your typical one flowers
    What sort of light level do you give your plants?


    cheers

    Natural light, dappled shade, some sun , but not full sun all day.
