    Hello all!
    I was wondering if you could only have one terrestrial Utricularia would it be a U. sandersoni, U. livida, or U. subulata? I would prefer percent ratings on each of the following:

    Flower/easy to seed

    Display

    Ease of care

    etc. etc. etc.

    I am currently leaning toward a U. sandersoni because I love the flowers, but is there anything I should know? I curently only own U. gibba


    P.S. Does anyone know where to get a Genelisa?
    Thanks! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Why only one? They do not take up much space and I have not found sandersonii or livida to be invasive if kept in separate pots and watch for the creepy crawlies through the edges or pot holes. If you trade plants, I expect that you will (or already do) have subulata as a passenger. Subulata is more of a contaminating pest than either sandersonii or livida.

    Bob pretty much summed it all up. All I could add is that sandersonii and livida would need to be pollinated as they do not self seed like subulata. I am trying this now to see if it is possible.

    As for Genlisea, you have mail

    That's interesting, although I don't/haven't traded yet... Would any come on CP greenhouse plants, although I haven't seen any yet [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] Genlisea? Thanks for all the help, though!

BobZ, I will start with only one terrestrial, I'm getting two or three Sarr.'s soon, I have 12 plants already! But could always use more!

    I'm leaning towards a subulata, because it seeds really easily... Does sandersonii need another plant to pollinate, or just some moving from anther to stigma? Also, since as far as I know, PFT doesn't sell Utrics, can I ask where to get one of these species? I will tell my only known source after I get the OK. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Thanks again!

    I have had best results with U. sandersoni (how hasn't?), but I choose subulata because it is the most challenging to get to bloom plus the flowers are the most attractive to me.

    I vote for U. sandersonii. It is as easy to grow as any of them, flowers dependably and profusely, and has a unique flower shape. It does not produce seed, in my experience, but I have never needed any.

    If it wasn't so common, it would probably be one of the most sought-after of the small terrestrial species.
