    Flowers just opened on this species, and I have confirmed the identity of this plant. It took 2 years to establish. Sadly, my posting webspace is currently down so I can't post a photo, but it is unmistakable. So, if I have shared this with any of you, you may rest easy that this is the true species.

    A lot of plants are bursting into flower. I have a U. blanchetti scape with 8 open flowers which sets a record! U. nephrophylla white flower is sending up a forest of scapes. Also in flower are all 3 forms of U. livida, U. prehensilis, U. uniflora, U. sandersonii, U. pusilla, U. subulata, U. dichotoma, U. graminifolia, and U. uliginosa. U. flacidda is coming along soon.

    Lordy I love these plants!

    I get my plants by making those that have extra plants feel bad about not giving me any of them. I also trade, beg, and make polite inquiries after demonstrating my skills with these plants. About the only thing I don't do is buy them.

    U. pusilla (the species name is never capitalized BTW) is a yellow flowered species. The leaves are about as broad as U. dichotoma or U. prehensilis.

    You can find some photos of other folks plants under Utricularia at Bob Z's website:

    Tamlin, you'll have to make sure that you get some of these species to set seed. I think you need to go on a feverish pollination spree. I know there are a few of us down here in OZ that would kill to get their hands on some of the plants you've just mentioned- especially me!.

    Regards,

    Sean.

    Sean,

    I have tried hair and fishing line without success trying to pollinate the flowers. So far my success rate is miserable. It doesn't help that my old eyes aren't what they once were. I would love to be able to send you seed, but my pollination skills with the Lentibularacea are poor. Have you any suggestions? Is there an optimal time to make the attempt: I know in some flowers the stigma must become receptive, or the pollen must ripen before it will come free?

    Well, Pete Thiel is pretty busy so I have to be patient, it's thanks to his kindness that I can post my photos to the web. I am currently hunting new free cyberspace, so I hope it won't be much longer before I can get some photos up.

    There are some pretty good Utricularia photos on my page at:

    http://www.sherlock-droserae.com/upload/index.asp


    Just click the "Tamlin" link in blue and select "thumbnails". I don't post this much as there are a few errors in ID on the site, although none of them are Utricularia to the best of my knowledge. There are a lot of Drosera photos too.

    I have a couple of interesting species coming into flower too, U. triloba and U. simplex. I hope that the flower will confirm the identification.
