    Hello,
    I recently got some Utricularia longifolia from adnedarn in a trade (he always sends great plants, btw). and now, about 2 months later, I SEE A FLOWER SCAPE ARISING!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] It's about an inch long. I think I know what might have triggered it to flower.
    1) adnedarn lives in hot, arid arizona. When he sent me the longifolia, it went through cold weather, and when it arrived, i immediately potted it up, but I grow it in cool conditions (60ºF.-70ºF., but this past week has been unusually warm. [70ºF.- 78ºF, and very dry {40%}])
    2) This past week or two I've kept the medium sorta dry (letting the tray dry out for several days at a time, maybe 5 days at the longest, possibly more?)
    3) I got a green thumb for utrics [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    4) it's been getting 5 hours of full sun sunce I got it, for a week or two it was overcast and cold
    5) I got 2 inches of longifolia medium, and I potted it in a 4 inch pot, maybe it's flowering cause of the extra medium space
    6) difference in soil medium?
    7) Danget, I know I have something important here, but I forgot it with all of the noise here. I'll post it here when/IF I remember it.

    I know, I know, it seems like I'm suggesting some odd things, but I'm keeping every possibility available. What do you think?

    when I visit a CP nusery Carniflora I saw several Utricularia longifolia flowering, I ask them how to make them flower but they told me they didn't know, but they were placed with Sarracenia so maybe they like a dormancy like Sarracenia?

    If I remember correctly, Longifolia needs a breif, dry dormant period, when they die down to turions.

    Wow, that's great! Kinda messed up. But great. :-) speaking of this clone have you spec or anyone growing longifolia have short leave life? they brown from the tip in. But many new leaves grow. So, it isn't like the plant isn't happy. Congrats again spec!

    I have this one growing, but the leaves seem to last almost forever on it. I've had the same long leaves since I got the plant months ago. The longest one right now is at least 6 if not 8 inches long and that's at least 5 months old.

    HEY! Don't hate me. I hate them too. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] The one that I have is thrilled with life, growing out the bottom, up the sides, roots all in the air, going crazy, huge leaves...just never a flower.

    Um, my first utric was a U. longifolia that flowered and spread out the bottom of the pots and conquered everything in two tanks and killed my D. prolifera and D. villosa and made me mad until I ripped it out of the two tanks(In giant tank-shaped retangles0 and threw it away. I have felt kind of bad ever since, as I have never seen such a prolific thing since.
