    I really dont think the grass like thing is U.hamboldtii.
    I grow U.reniformis, U.bisquamata and U.longifolia and and I have never seen these leaves. It could be an another blladerwort or a weed.

    Pyro, this is the clone that you supplied me with.

    Believe me folks, I know the difference between U. humboldtii and U. praelonga, and there is no chance I would have grabbed the wrong pot, or that they could have become infected, as both are in completely different terraria.

    When I first got my start of this species, it behaved exactly as this one is behaving. All of a sudden it will put up a typical leaf and then the doubts will be removed. Have faith.

    Question

    I've got my eye on the plant and will take a picture as soon as it produces a "typical" humboldtii leaf.

    thanks,

    Tamlin,

    I figured given the source [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] but my clone of this plant never did that so it is just weirding me. Maybe next time I am over there I'll see what the original plant is doing. This could be a mutant

    Nope, not a mutant. Dodec has also noted the growth pattern in his plant in the past. I wrote asking him about it when I first noticed it.
