    Sean,

    I really lucked out: the plant flowered but a month or two after I got the start. I think this is my absolute favorite flower on Earth!

    Tamlin,

    I totally agree from the photos I've seen. U. nelumbifolia wouldn't be too far behind.

    Sean.

    Wow...beautiful flower and photograph!

    Mr. Tamlin...you have a LOT of "favorites". But I know how that goes. I have a ton of favorites myself. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks for the pic.

    What so special about the small form of Reniformis? why Would you want a smaller form of a gorgeous plant anyway?

    Part of the charm of Utricularia is the general smallness of the flowers: they are exquisitely perfect in form and color. It takes a certain kind of person to be willing to ponder this diminuative beauty. Their perfection and appeal isn't glaring or blaring, but once you come to appreciate them, bigger isn't really a concern. U. olivacea is probably the smallest flower per biomass of any flowering species on Earth, and I would rather have the opportunity to ponder their form than to gaze at the largest Nepenthes in the world. So, I disagree: bigger is not always better. It's all a matter of focus.

    "The bigger anything is the more there is to love."

    Traphole...I hope you embrace that philosophy throughout the rest of your life. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] It is a rare man that feels that way. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    And as Tamlin says, bigger isn't always better either.

    Big, small, short, tall, bright, dull, simple, complex...each plant, just like each individual human being, has SOMETHING of beauty to offer. Sometimes its just not as readily evident and takes a little thoughtful perusal to see. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
