    Very nice! The flower seems to be sparkling. Did you sprinkle any glitter over it? J/K

    I have to get some of this species after seeing your picture. Thanks for posting

    Flowers of this species lasted for me close to 3 months just as pretty as the day they opened! Be sure to look at the shading on the spur, it is the best part.

    I have just placed my plant out side as an aquatic, I am hoping the it really gets it spreading. This is a great species!

    Really lovely photo...really shows off where you get the word "skirt" from. Looks like a dancer swinging in an old-fashioned hoop dress.

    Pretty flower....great photos. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hi,

    Thanks for the nice comments! Does anyone know, if this species is autogam, or if it needs pollination ? I would really like to try to get some seeds from this plant.

    U. uniflora needs a bit of help to be pollinated.

    Recently I tried a few crosses involving U. uniflora, dichotoma and beaugleholei. All species set seed and the seed has been sown. I have just noticed germination of the U. dichotoma x beaugleholei. I'm not sure if I was successful in the crosses or if they were just selfings but they were all very easy to pollinate.

    I have never had a U. uniflora flower self pollinate without my intervention.

    Hi,

    I have pollinated both flowers i had three days ago. Today the petals dropped, only about 2 weeks after opening. I hope, that pollination was successfull.
