    I figured it would take years, but the cutting I received in the spring is putting up scapes!! There are 2 so far. Plants are being grown in a terrarium outdoors, under a bush that provides very broken morning sunlight. Mix is live sphagnum and the plants sit in a few cm of water. I went wild when I fist saw the photos of these flowers, so this is a real treat, and I just had to crow :-)

    Tamlin,

    How did those blooms turn out...I've been itching to see reniformis in action!

    The scape continues to develop (it is already taller than the terrarium it is in, I have the pot lying nearly on its side. I figure I have about a weeks wait before I see the first flowers. I'll post a link when they open.

    Tamlin,

    That must be like watching water boil! Slow scrapes drive me crazy but I imagine that reniformis will be well worth the wait.

    Tamlin,
    Is that the plant that isn't nelumbifolia? Be sure to pollinate the flowers.

    If you think this is slow you should try flowering U. tricolor!!!

    Giles, this isn't the "not" nelumbifolia, although it appears identical in form to that plant. I will make the pollination attempt, but I am woefully inept with the process.

    Pollination is easy in U. reniformis, because the flowerrs are so large and there is a lot of pollen produced.
