    Yes, they certainly are addictive, almost annoyingly so! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I don't think they'll overtake Drosera to become my personal number one CP addiction (except perhaps temporarily - although I always seem to return to Sundews as my "first CP love" lol), but they come a very close second!

    I'm mainly interested in Drosera, Dionaea & Aldrovanda, Hardy Orchids (esp Dactylorhiza), Arums and Ericas (Heaths/Heathers - European + S.African)

    I've got straight up sandersonnii blooming right now. How does one get the "blue" to flower? Also, my livida hasn't grown or died or died back or done anything since I've had it (now 3 months). It is in a peat, LFS, sand mix, open tray, west window sill. What will get it growing?

    my livida is in with my lowland Neps(and everything else) recieving lots of light (14 hours no shade), high humidity and is nice and warm during the day with a slight drop at night and is doing wonderfully and is about done with a solid 4 months of continuous flowering. its planted in a peat/perlite mix. not sure why its doing so well it just is, im not doing anything special for it.

    My U. sandersonii blue didn't bloom until recently. I think the warmer spring temperatures and increased light and day length did the trick. I've never had Utrics do a mass flowering, though. They just trickle the flowers:
    There's no 'a' in perlite.

    DM,

    That is a stunning example of U. sandersonii Blue Flower. WOWEE! Best I have ever seen blue ribbon winner for sure!

    Jim, you might want to consider putting the U. livida under lights? I canf't say why it isn't flowering, this species is very willing to do so. In my collection it has been everblooming since 2001.

    I can't say for sure which I love the most, Drosera or Utricularia. Part of my problem with Drosera is I know too much to simply enjoy them...I am caught up in their taxonomy, distribution, variation: they are a research subject....but Utricularia are just plain pretty, and the only thing I do to confirm their identity is to try to find other photos that look the same as mine, and occasionally to bug Dodec with questions regarding ID. So there is a lot less academic interest and more aesthetic appreciation.

    Utricularia always seem to be presenting some new and exciting development: suddenly scapes are poking up all over, or there is a rush of growth, fortunate (and random) self fertility, abberations like bladders on lollons (apologies to Gardenofeden for using that self coined term), cool unerground stolons (or rollons, if you dare) bedecked with bladders growing out of the drain holes....I could go on and on about the charm they present.
