    Question

    Here's a few of the utrics that I grow.

    This tricolor is growing in a typical nepenthes mix, with no water tray, and is doing well. I have the same clone in another terrarium in peat moss with a high water table. We'll see which one blooms first [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]







    Finally got this growing well... it needed peat moss instead of typical nepenthes mix (duhh).

    Nice pics! How do you winter them? When is their time for flowering?

    very cool. i just recieved those species not long ago. i was a bit worried about the color of my 'Yog-sothoth' but they look just like yours so it must be normal. very nice plants. i hope reniformis establishes for me. i just noticed the other day that my paulinea is spreading and my calycifida 'Mrs. Marsh' appears to be sending up a flower stalk so all in all its been a good month for me Utric wise. hopefully i can get them all through the winter. how are you growing all yours? they appear to be in with Neps and going by the Heli you have atleast some in a highland setup.

    I winter them in my living room with no specail heating or cooling. Photoperiod changes a bit, and seasonal temperatures in the living room, from highs of low 80's F in summer to low 70's F in winter.

    As for flowering, I wish I knew lol. All the utrics here are young, as in their 1st year of growth in their present containers/conditions.

    Yes and no Rattler. They are with my Neps, but the Heli are not in a highland setup. All these utrics here along with my Neps and Heli's are in a single 50 gallon terrarium.

    Living room? Really? Wow! That's easy. So the most important factor is photoperiod? A few of recently acquired a bunch of epiphytic Utrics and I'd venture to say that we have a few questions about wintering our plants.

    My reniformis is doing absolutely rubbish.................
    All its leaves have gone, I accidently snapped 2 of them them. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
    The other one died.
    I read that they grow back their leaves if they are destroyed, but I odnt see any new leaves..................
    The only thing thats growing on them is stems with bladders through the bottom of the pot.

    Starman, as long as there are bladders growing through the holes of the pot you are in good shape! My reni grows 1 leaf, then the previous one dies after awhile... the leaves get progressively larger each time.

    Just be patient, soon there will be a leaf I'm sure of it.
