    Pyro,
    I think you mean Utricularia nelumbifolia, this one also grows in the water urns of bromeliads and I grow this as well.
    I grow this and humboldtii under the same conditions, namely in pure life sphagnum moss standing in water. I did try all sorts of arrangements with concentric pots etc trying to mimic bromeliads, but sphagnum works fine. They produce lots of arching shoots, which in nature obviously land in adjacent bromeliads then develop into new plants, but this is very useful for propagating as you can guide the shoots into new pots! If you let the shoots grow in the water they do quite well too..
    Martin,
    I have only flowered humboldtii once, and I was growing it in quite warm slightly shady conditions with Highland Nepenthes at the time. Nelumbifolia flowers much more easily and is generally in more vigorous and easy grower. I get seed most years, which germinates immediately !

    GOE,

    Just so. I knew it didn't sound right but I couldn't figure out why. Thanks for the correction
