    Hi GOE, what conditions are you growing your plant under? Would you be able to spare a start in the future? What I would like to try is a set up like the one in the back of "Savage Garden" that they were growing the corkscrew plant in, and I thought that humboldtii would be particularly good for it as it is supposed to have particularly large traps on a reasonably sized plant. Let me know! Thanks.

    What about U. multifida? It used to be Polympopholyx multifida I think... Don't they have big traps, or was that just a BIG picture i saw???

    Greencrunch,

    You might also want to consider U. nephrophylla. If I remember correctly it is just about equal to humboldtii but easier to grow.

    I don't know of a source unfortunatly so it might take a little searching.

    Is U. nephrophylla the same thing as U. reniformis?

    Nope. Nephrophylla is a different species that reniformis. They are realted though, as is humboldtii, so the look somewhat similar.

    gardenofeden :
    Can you give me advice how to get them to flower ?
    Where is your clone from ? Do you know ?
    Is U. humboldtii self-fertile or do you need two different clones in flower to produce seed (I would be VERY interested in seeing this seed with my own eyes)

    greencrunch :
    I noticed the biggest traps on the surface of very wet soil (mostly sphagnum) and on the bottom of the pot. I use a glas filled with dead sphagum and you can see at least some of the traps.
    I wouldn't suggest growing them in pure water (but my experience with this spezies is very limited)
    It's easy to propagate via the "runners" (or how do you call them, see picture...)
    Grows under the same climatic conditions as Heliamphora.

    I grow Nephrophylla.
    The leaves are small (max 1 cm across) and are a dark olive green colour. They are spotted with little grey bumps and the underside is purple. The leaves are reniform like Reniformis but are only held 1cm high above the soil. I have positivly ID'd this plant and have sen it in other people's collection under the same name so as you can see it doesnt look like Reniformis. The flowers however ARE similar but are a very pale almost white colour, but I have only had it flower for me once.
    Does anybody else grow this plant? Can you describe yours?

    Yes, that sounds like nephrophylla alright. I think that the pustular leaves are a give away. U. nephrophylla doesn't have the extra large traps that U. humboltii has, so would not be especially good for the technique Greencrunch described.

    Both U. livida and U. dichotoma have largish traps and would be much faster and easier to grow in the setting you've described, GC. As for U. humboltii - my guess would be (I have not grown this species) that it would be better to grow it in a raised pot and let the stolons hang out the bottom.
