    To Flint. He suggested that it's common grass! Anyway, I found lots of COMMONUS GRASSIUS growing in dead sphagnum. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    But Pyro, the leaves have round ends, not pointed ends like grass...is u.dichotoma or u.uniflora like that?

    Cindy,

    Dichotoma stolons are shaped rather like a grain of rice, maybe slightly more broad. Tricolor stolons are shaped like a lima bean. Another possibility, from the sound of it, is U. sandersonii which has stolons shaped like teardrops.

    stolons? these are something else completely different(creeping stem/runner) ! Perhaps you mean lamina, or leaf blade. Utricularia tricolor leaf blades are almost semi-circular in shape with the leaf stalk connected to the middle of the flat side if that makes sense. this plant is fairly tough and survives down to about 45°C in my greenhouse, but will do better and flower at slightly higher temperatures. It grows quite happily in either peat/sand or sphagnum moss and likes to be kept quite wet with the water level not far below the level of the compost.

    Gardenofeden,

    Utrics do not have true leaves. Photosynthetic stolon is the correct term for them but for simplicity (or maybe because I'm not a big typist) I just shorten it to stolon.

    Odds are good that nay unexpected "grass-like" utric is going to be U. subulata. If it sends up tiny flowers that don't open, or for some reason actually opens small yellow flowers, then this is what you have.

    Re: the stolons vs. leaves debate: I've done a bit of reading on this subject, and it really depends on who you ask. Utric morphology just doesn't fit well into categories of plant morphologists.
