    well heres the pic it aint great but you get the idea. the red arrow is pointing to a new green lolon, the blue arrow is to one of the original lolons that was there when it was sent to me. like i said it looks healthy other than its color.

    Although the pic is not too clear, it looks the the soil is covered with algae. Maybe there is something wrong with the soil...

    not algae, the greenish color is shredded sphagnum mixed in with the peat. ive been working in that tank today moving things around and taking a few out and putting them in a rubbermaid with some 4ft lights over it since a couple of my Drosera dont care for the very high humidity of my lowland Nep chamber. i see there are LOTS more new green lolons coming up all over. i think im just going to chalk it up as a wierd reaction to transplanting and the new enviroment.

    It's hard to tell from the photo. Just remember that division of Utricularia generally sparks new growth, and in some species is essential for health and longevity. I am abo ut to divide my own U. tricolor since it still has shown any inclination to flower. This time I am going to divide it, and then back off on watering the plant. Maybe that will be with winning combo for me.
