im curious as to other ppls experiances. i was told this is a fairly uncommon species in collections and personally im not quite sure why. the dang thing spreads as fast as sandersonii for me even if i have yet to get it to bloom. infact its spreading fast enough that it was placed away from my other Utrics as it grows "above" the soil like sandersonii so it likes to go into the next pot from above rather than through drain holes like other species. good light, shallow pot of peat sand and LFS in an inch of water, normal household temps and fluctuations and the thing goes nuts.
