    It sounds like the spots are viral or fungal. It might be related to poor air circulation. Most of by Utricularia are fine with a RH of 50%+, so you might want to consider some ventillation.

    I have had leaves nearly a foot long, no kidding. My best results came from a deep airy substrate (close to a foot deep) with the stolons getting down to the wet part while the leaves remained in moss that had slightly dry heads. The plants never flowered for me though, and I speculate it was due to "too good" of a growing condition. Utricularia seem to flower best when there is some environmental stress: likely a survival mechanism to deal with periods of drought when seed is a viable reproduction option.

    Thank you! I've been growing this plant since last March. I used a soil mixture:
    1/4 peat
    1/4 live sphagnum moss
    1/4 vermiculite
    1/4 perlite

    Its pretty much a nepenthes mix... Is this similar to what you all grow your longifolia's in?

    A foot long utric, my oh my. Lucky I have a 55 gallon tank with room. If I ever get this or tricolor to bloom, I'll be a very happy man.

    By the way, how long do you think it will take before this plant gets mature?

    It took about a year for my plants to reach the size I mentioned, and this was from a start smaller than the one in the photo.

    My mix is LFS/pearlite in equal ratio. Flowering may have been initiated by densely crowded stolons and/or a period of cool temps. and is an event you will never forget!

    Just wanted to give you guys a blast... Think you've seen large U.longifolia leaves? I have a picture that'll blast you out of your shoes!! I found some really large leaves last year at the Serra da Araponga, in E Minas Gerais state. I don't remember exactly how long right now, but have it written down in my field notes (in Brazil). This leaf comes from the site where I found the white form a few years before. Half the plants were normal pink-purple flowered with reddish leaves and half were white-flowered with green leaves. Plus the flowers scapes were unuasually loaded with flowers. Anwyays, if you wanna see it, then just tell me how is it that attach pics with these messages?!?!?!

    Question

    Tamlin posted directions for posting pics in your 'welcome to the forums post' here -- http://www.**********.com/cgi-bin/ib...ST;f=14;t=8876
    He's asked me to answer for him since he is jamming right now. ( When he stuck his head out looking for another guitar, I caught him to ask him about this.) Hope this helps. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Rats! Torn between two loves, and I missed the chance to see the photos. C'mon Fernando, its easy!

    Go here:

    http://www.cpforums.org/gallery/others


    , and click "upload photos" . Then click "Browse" :this lets you browse your HD folders. Find the folder with the photo you want, open it, and double click the photo entry. Then click "Upload Now". When it is done processing, click the thumbnail of the photo displayed in the galley to enlarge it, and then right click on the photo. Select "properties" highlight and copy the URL displayed (be sure you get it all: start at the upper left and drag down to the lower right until you have the ".jpg" at the end). Come back here to this Forum page, and click "post reply" just as you would to answer this thread. Right above the window where you type, there is a button marked "Images" Click this. In the address bar that opens, right click, and select "paste". Now click "OK". The script that appears in the window you type your reply in is your photo. Set your cursor above or below this script and add your text, then click "Add reply". Your photo and text are now posted.

    It's a lot easier than genetic phyllogeny, so I know you can do this, oh please, oh please :-)
