    For the first time ever I have got flower stalks on my U. Tricolor. I put the pot in deeper water this year as its amphibious so I think that is responsible for the outburst! The stalks are incredibaly thin! I'll post pics when they open!

    Cool. Keep your fingers crossed though - I've heard that U. tricolor scapes have a habit of aborting.

    Congratulations! Incredible! Amazing! Far out! Fantastic! I got mine to flower a decade ago and I still brag about it although I haven't been able to duplicate the feat. Tell me, what are your growing temperatures day and night? How deep it the water on the surface of the substrate? Thanks in advance!

    Yes Richard, tell us, tell us, TELL US. We must know everything, 60 second updates on temp, humidity, light level, partial pressure of oxygen and carbon dioxide, total size of plant, position of the stars, what you had for breakfast the night of your eighth birthday.....Oh, wait I'm getting carried away :biggrin:

    But I too am interested in your conditions.

    The plant is a colony i started just under 2 years ago. Its in a 5 inch 1/2 pot. The plant is in a polystyrene tub slightly deeper than the pot and the water level at the moment is just at the same level as the surface of the compost (though i might make it deeper). It grows in my greenhouse wich at the moment is getting daytime temps of 28-35*c and night temps drop to about 7-10*c + It is in dappled shade under a large flowering cherry tree.
    I REALLY hope the flowers don't abort! They seem to be growing quite vigorously. I will keep you all posted!

    UPDATE!
    The stems are still growing healthily and are now about 4 inches high and i'm starting to see what may be tiny buds developing at the tips!
