    I am expecting some turions of this species recently featured in the CPN December issue. Can anyone tell me a good storage method? Thanks!

    I can tell you how NOT to store them. I had a number of U. intermedia turions that I placed in a plastic water bottle this fall and stuck into the frig for the winter. I went to get them last week and they were gone. My wife had tossed them out thinking that something spoiled. MORAL: clearly label your treasures; then tell spouse and kids to leave them alone.

    Chris Fieger, a long time CPer a friend of mine, wrote an article on temperate Utrics storing, and if I remember well, she putted them into a glass jar, perhaps Mason type, and stored them in the fridge until spring... Pretty similar to BobZ technique, and I second him, label your pots! Turion in peat water just look alike an old pickles jar [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] I am wondering if I haven't read it on dodec's site ... If not, perhaps it was in the old CCPS article from 5 years ago...

    Let just hope this technique apply to this species as well.

    Well, if I ever do see them I will try, but I think this was a case of wishful thinking. Darn.

    Bjorn,

    Just check the Carnivorous Plant Database to find out who the author of a plant species is. This is the data for U. stygia :

    It was described by Goran Thor, a Swede in 1988 in the Nordic Journal of Botany.

    Hi Bjorn,

    stygia, the latinization of the (River) Styx. You can read for yourself, on the link below. It's in swedish, and there's is also a nice photo of the holotype:
