    My U. livida is in a 2" plastic pot filled with the typical 50:50 peat perlite mix. I allow its tray to dry between waterings occasionally but I keep the soil damp at all times.

    I use 2 1\2 to 3 inch pots filled with a mix of equal parts peat\perlite in high light\humidity,keep them in a deep water tray and fill it to the brim then let it nearly evaporate before watering again this should keep them blooming happily.

    I find that Utics are very easy growers and can grow like weeds baisically anywhere. They don't mind shallow pots since their roots grow mainly on the surface. To my expericence they grow better in a mix with not alot of big things in the mix like perlite. They like Peat and Sand alot or even an all peat mixture is good. Just keep them pretty wet and let them dry out at times too.

    I'm looking for the common threads in the responses. It looks like sand, peat, and perlite, good lighting, wet media, but allow occasional drying. Does that sum it up? Thanx!

    I grow livida in peat/ sand, but sandersonnii seems to like milled LFS for me. Livida seems indiferent... you could grow it in plywood and it would still thrive.
