    Wink

    Hello,
    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] yesterday I counted over 18 very large Utricularia sandersonii flowers! I woke up this morning to find all of the flowers in a big heap, wilting. I cut all of them off except for 2, that looked okay, and I put them in a heap of books, to flatten them. Does anyone know why the wilted so fast? the flowers were about a month old, maybe more. I got the plant from Jeremiah.

    I would guess that at a month old the flowers just hit the end of their life expectancy. Shouldn't be a problem for you, once this plant starts to flower it usually keeps going non stop

    Unhappy

    I've been growing sandersonii for a few years now, and have never noticed a drastic dropoff in flowers like you described. I have some questions for you:
    where is the water level?
    light photoperiod?
    temp?
    Are the plants themselves OK. It was just a flower wilting episode, right?
