    There has been past discussion about the difference between the U. sandersonii "typical" and "blue flower" forms. Here are flowers of both that have been grown side by side under exactly the same soil, light, temperature, water, etc. Note that the typical has much more narrow ears and less frilly skirt. The blue flower has a slightly darker blue color than the typical. The typical has larger leaves and flowers easily and profusely, while the blue flower has smaller leaves and flowers occasionly.

    By the way, these photos are from my first digital camera, a Canon A70 which I have had for only 3 days and have not yet learned quite how to use it.

    Nice photos Bob, and a good comparison between the two forms. As an aside, I have several different clones of this species, and the "bunny faces" can vary in expression. There is an "angry bunny" form and one that is more "smiley". Now keep the photos coming!

    I think the typical flower form is much cuter (if flowers can be cute)

    Also, I have noticed that in my cultures, only the "blue form" has aerial stolons and is highly opportunistic. All my typical cultures lack these tiny air roots and are much better behaved.

    I agree. However, my typical form tends to have an abundance of flowers for months at a time. See below.

    My blue form has sent up numerous flower scapes but still refuses to flower. The buds end up producing seed, but never open. I have varied the light level from 2 to 10 inches below grow lights, without success. Any ideas?

    GJ on the pics, btw, Bob! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
