    Heres a question. . . why do you like utrics, because they have nice flowers, or because they have cool traps you can see (sometimes if you have a clear pot or an aquatic) and eat stuff? ponder...ponder... ponder all night!

    All the above!

    I love that they are so unlike any other vascular plant in physiology, have wicked little traps, and lovely flowers. I also enjoy explaining to people that, yes that little pot of funny 'leaves' is carnivorous.

    I like the flowers: more beautiful to me than any orchid. These are some of the most highly evolved plants on earth. Every one is special and unique, and these differences usually stand out, both in the "leaves" and in the flowers. Something is always happening in my collection: a new scape, or a new success story based on small differences of culture. Plus, they are made to be shared, and I love sharing. Finally, they are the low plant on the CP totem pole: it takes a special sensitivity to appreciate these diminuative gems vs the larger traps of other genera and I have found most Utricularian's to be most understanding of the passion for acquiring these species that so few appreciate. It's sort of a special club, y'know?

    Question

    I agree Tamlin. I don't know if I'd consider myself a Utricularian yet, but I would someday like that title [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] I like to split up colonies and place some outside in my planter gardens, some inside in their own pots, some I give away come "dividing day" whenever the plants need it.

    I like the flowers best, though many are best seen up close to really appreciate their unique beauty [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img];
