    i just recieved a package from.....well a friend up north..... lets call him "Tim" [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] anyways my Utric collection just doubled in size. there were 10 Utrics in the package and ive only even heard of four of them and i need help. normally i would do research myself first BUT im leaving for Minneapolis at midnite and im trying to get a newspaper ready for print here at work so im a lil short on time. i basically need to know if i can just throw these in some rinsed, fluffed peat in 4-packs(like you buy bedding plants in) and set them in a tray of water for the weekend. the species are as follows:

    odorata
    asplundii
    prehensilis
    graminifolia
    amethystina
    filliformis
    nova-zealandiae
    welwitschii
    aureomaculata

    the aspundii looks like it may like pure LFS but im not sure the others look like they have been growing in a peat/sand mix but i dont have any sand at the moment. so will fluffed peat work for 4 or 5 days until i get back or what?

    In a nut shell, yes the fluffed peat will be fine for over the weekend for all of them. In the long run you probably want to go peat:sand for everything except the asplundii which needs a lighter mix, perlite:LFS or orchid bark:LFS works well though you can get all complicated if you really want.

    Oh and FYI, the filiformis is a Genlisea not a Utric [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Just in case you did not know.

    Hope this hepls and feel free to drop me a line if you need more assistance

    so just how rare are some of these? ive heard of nova-zealandiae, prehensilis, odorata, amethystina and graminifolia and a couple of these ones ive only even heard a referance to and have no info on. the others im completely lost on. no one has commented on the fact i said 10 species and there is only 9 listed, i forgot to mention one wasnt labeled, it was an accident ofcourse so now i got some detective work to do.

    I wouldn't call any of them particularly rare though most are not all that common. U. aureomaculata is probably the rarest of the batch.

    As for you unknown, PM me a description and maybe I can help
