    I just recently got a U. Tricolor. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Is there anything I should know about the plant because this is my first time growing them so I want to get a good start with them.

    I have them in a pot of live sphagnum (don't be misled by the 'pot', it's only 3-inch) which is placed on a tray with water. I don't really bother with it...sorry but it looked like blades of grass...it hasn't flowered for me yet...

    Uh-oh. If you're U. tricolor looks like blades of grass, then it's not U. tricolor. U. tricolor should have round leaves, about one cm in diameter.

    It's not hard to grow - and kind of wet peat or sand product will support it. It is notoriously hard to get to flower.
