    My plant finally opened a flower the first time for me. Here is what it looks like.

    U. monanthos is a really nice plant. I find that since it has such short peduncles that the flower opens before I notice that it was even growing an inflorescence.

    Another interesting thing about U. monanthos is that the stolons grow so deeply in the soil that the leaves will grow all the way up from the bottom of a three-inch pot.

    How tall is the inflorescence? It is hard to tell from the photo but it appears to bit a little taller than what I would expect for U. monanthos.

    I don't think that monanthos is even a variety, it's just U. dichotoma with one small flower and a short inflorescence. I suppose that someone could register a cultivar name for it, but it couldn't be "monanthos" because it can't be a latin name.

    On my plant the inflorescence is about 2-4 cm.

    I would have to check, but I thought Taylor listed them seperately. Which is good enough for me! lol

    I am so glad I am not a Utricularia taxonomist...

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    From the photo shown I don't think that this is actually a U. dichotoma var. monanthos. the flowerscape appears to be too tall. It is very common for this species to be incorrectly labelled.

    Here is a picture of mine. Pretty blurry background but you can see the scape is all of a couple cm tall. The other thing I have noticed alot is that U. dichotoma has that little yellow ridge in the center of the two longer ones while this guy only has the 2 longer ones. Not sure if that is significant.
