    Eplants02,

    My vote would go to U. dichotoma. Mine is growing like a weed despite being dried, burned, and moved across country. Other good bets that I have experience with are U. sandersonii, and U. tricolor. I have also heard that U. unifolia is super easy. If you are interested I has the first three, you can contact me if you would like a trade or something.

    Some of the easiest species to get to flower are andersonii, livida and bisquamata. They will flower soon after planting and will keep flowering over long periods of time. When the flowering slows down, start a new colony with a small piece of the old one.

    Other interesting species that will flower given the opportunity are U dichotoma, U. flaccida (large yellow flowers, an 18 inch branching inflorescence), U welwitschii (tightly twining inflorescence with many pink, yellow and white flowers), U. tridentata (medium size pink flowers with a yellow palate.

    Of course some of the more unusual species may be hard to find.

    You may also want to try the easy Genlisea species G. hispidula and violacea.

    What species get purple flowers? I have seen pictures of a few and think they are very pretty. I would also like to know if there are any with DEEP shades of blue or red?

    Flint,

    U. dichotoma and U. unifolia both have purpleish flowers. A few of the epiphytic species have purple or pink/purple (U. longifolia, U. humboldtii, etc.) U. menziesii, and U. campbelliana both have red flowers but I have heard that they are extremly difficult to grow.

    Flint,


    If you find U. menziesii and U. campbelliana could you let me know. I've been hunting them for a couple weeks to no avail.

    You bet. I always try to make it a point to let the forum users know of anything new I get in case someone else is looking for it. I like to trade. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
