    Is it only producing the grass-like stolons? If it is, you COULD have U.praelonga. If it has both the grassy stolons, and the regular u.tricolor kidney shaped stolons, It may be tricolor infested with U. praelonga. There is no real way of telling so soon. Keep us updated.

    All the leaves on U. tricolor are spade-shaped. Grass-like leaves could be:

    U. praelonga
    U. tricolor inflorescences
    Grass

    Do you have proper tricolor leaves on your plant, and if so are they attached to the grass-like ones?

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] That doesnt look like praelonga... it looks more like some kind of grass. Sometimes they sprout up out of sphagnum.

    The small leaves at the base look like some kind of utric, but not U. tricolor. I agree with Colieo that the taller one could be a species of grass - I am assuming the leaves are flat, not cylindrical.

    If it is grass, it should have a fairly obvious vein running down the middle. If it is round in cross section it is definitely not a utric. The leaves at the bottom don't look a whole lot like U. tricolor, although the do look quite a bit U. tridentata - could the two names have been confused at some point. U. tricolor has kidney-shaped (reniform) leaves - more or less round to oval with a notch where the petiole joins the leaf.
