    Good luck Tre. It is very hard to identify Utrics without flowers! Except for the ones with very distinct leaves, traps, tubers, etc. Your best bet is a copy of Taylor's monograph. I have a couple of mystry plants too but have yet to even try and sort them out (no flowers). The thought of doing it makes my head spin. I just look at Taylor's monograph and say OOO...that one would sure be nice to have. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    If you get stumped on IDs, post them in the "Identify That Plant!" forum. Can't let the Nepaholics have all the fun [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    good luck on identifying with out flowers unless you have a copy of Taylors and a microscope. more effort than i would put into although i would like to get a copy of Taylors. i have an unknown from Tim Malcom, it appears identical to the nephrophylla i recieved from Tamlin but without a bloom its labeled U. ?

    on sandersonii "blue", mine finally opened its flowers yesterday and i gave them a day to color up. its not a bold blue, rather a light blue background with slightly darker blue markings. i prefer the typical variety, white background with nice fairly dark purplish markings.

    Sheridan, you are SO lucky to get those blue ones to bloom! I can't get mine to do. What are ya doing right?

    Another fast spreader is U. bisquamata as well as livida.

    lol Jim, i do nothing special. all my Utrics other than reniformis and asplundii are grown the same way, in a shallow pot, in an inch of water, under bright light in temps rainging from 65-90 degrees depending on the outside temps, how strong the sun is shining through the near by sliding glass doors and what the house thermostat is set at. i dont baby 99% of my plants in the slightest other than to maybe get them established. once they start to spread for me they "fend for themselves" so to speak. lights are on timers and i just keep them from drying out.
