    Question

    Some of the newer Utrics to my collection are sending up flowers, so I thought I'd share.

    I almost lost my unifolia awhile back, but it rebounded nicely and is sending up flowers.



    Here's the graminifolia (wish my camera could take closer pics)



    A nice suprise, the heterosepala flowered just the other day for the first time.

    Utrics are hard to photograph. Nice photos.

    Just one thing. That's U. uniflora not unifolia.

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

    Hey Homer, how do you cultivate your U. graminifolia? I think I keep mine too cold.

    Thanks!

    I can't believe I messed the name up again LOL. I'll get it right one day I'm sure.

    Much like the rest of my utrics, really. Equal parts silica sand & peat. Watered via the tray method. Low temps are 60 minimum, high temps in the 70s. It's growing well right along in the same pots as some of my Drosera.

    Homer, have you ever got a mass bloom like pictured in The Savage Garden? mine always only sends up a single bloom, granted it does stick around for a long while. Nep G. mine is growing in about the same conditions as Homers and doing well. only difference i can think of is its in pure peat.

    I think mine was too cold. SO I moved the now leafless pot to the lowland Nepenthes chamber, hopefully it will return...guess it doesn't like 48F at night too well! But it made it this long, hopefully its a workhorse and will rebound for me!

    Not yet, but I hope so in the future. I recieved the graminifolia not too long ago, so it hasn't had a chance to yet.
