    I do not think that you will flower that one. It looks like to be one of the non floriferous clones. In that size it would be full of flowers now. Anyway its a good vegetative reproducer and can even kill D.capensis by taking its light if planted together in a terrarium or big pot.

    ludwig777,

    Sorry for jumping in here, but seeing that your specimen grows so well, I just have to ask you what growing medium you use and how wet you keep it.

    Regards,

    Christer

    It is in sphagnum, peat, perlite, and fine orchid bark, and it is flooded at all times.

    Simply awesome ludwig. I used to grow this plant very well. Then it came down with mites so I drowned it. ...in the dark. It didn't like it too much and I lost it. I think this is the same clone that bobz recieved as "U. alpina" as that's what mine was called. Now I can't keep my new current plant barely alive. Here is what mine used to look like:

    Yours doesn't look much like mine, especially the new growth where mine comes out and reaches some length as a thin spike before it widens...doesn't look like yours behaves this way. (Look closely at my second picture, directly in the center of the plant is a reddish spike: this is a new shoot still not widened).

    I had great result when simply cutting all infected leaves. As all leaves were infected I removed the complete overground growth and the plant did a great job in growing those parts again in no time. Its just like D. capensis.

    I'm sure mine grew almost one of a kind. This was grown indoors sat off about 3 ft to the side of all my flourecent tubes. So, the wide leaves was probably for the lack of light? I loved the way it looked though!! I do currently have some longifolia outside that hasn't done crap all winter, but maybe it'll start growing now that it is getting warmer and will show some more growth like yours.

    Also, thanks Jan for the tip I'll keep that in mind. Although, I now use a small spray bottle of RO water with a few drops of cinnamon leaf oil which seems to be very good at taking care of those mites.
