    There is some strange growth on my U. dichotoma. It is hard to see in this photo. Look towards the top of the picture, near the rim of the pot. the growths are black. What is going on here?!

    I dont see anything out of the ordinary going on with it. It looks just like my plant does. Maybe we just cant see it in the photo. (Nice plant too! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] )

    I noticed them before I read the answer. I guess I've spent too much time looking at utrics. U. dichotoma has pretty impressive flowers - you'll like them. I hope that your growing area has plent of head room - the stalks can get pretty tall.

    BTW, it looks like you have some mineral accumulation on the surface of the soil - what kind of water are you using? I don't know how sensitive they are to water impurities, but you might want to keep an eye on it.

    good job on the find!!! i knew someone would see them. lol

    distilled. i noticed that too. it seams it is just sand that is drying out. i don't know. i have rinced the pot. and tested the drain water. 8 ppm. so i have pretty much ruled out mineral build up. apparently the plant is happy. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] any other ideas on that?
    thanks,

    It also could be some kind of powdery mold.

    In reference to the black growths in the pot, I can't tell by the picture but I get the strangest thing happening in a couple of my Utric pots: the soil slowly piles up in a corner of the pot and turns black, like an ant colony was excavating but there are never any ants. Sometimes this is extreme. I've searched for critters but never see any; sometimes the soil gets mounded over some of the foliage. There must be something living down there, maybe earthworms?
