    Hey,
    I grow my plants on a windowsil, and they are doing very well. I think they would also do well in a terrerium.

    Hi,

    mine does grow quite well at an east facing window. It is sending up another flower stalk at the moment.

    Joachim,

    Out of curiosity, what sort of temperature range is your plant experiencing, and do you have any speculations as to what may have initiated the flowering?

    Thanks, my window sill is southeast facing, 70-80% humidity. I saw that the caption for the picture said that is grows in pure living spaghnum moss. Is it essential? Thanks

    Hi Tamlin,

    this plant is sitting in my living room with day temperatures around 18-20 deg and night temperatttures around 12-14 degrees centigrade. We had a very hot summer when my Ut. humoldtii as well as my Ut. reniformis (large) totally stopped growing. The Ut. reniformis is flowering for some weeks now and the Ut. humbidtii is just starting to send up a flower stalk. Both of them already had flowered in spring with roughly the same time shift in between flowering.

    I have three pots with Ut. humboldtii, one with a mostly peat based mix, one with sterilized LFS and on qith living LFS. The plant growing in the living LFS grows much better than the other two under my conditions.
    Cheers Joachim

    So they prefer live spaghnum but will still do well in peat moss, and just plain spaghnum moss?
