    This is U. longifolia, how do you get it to bloom? Notice it is growing right on the shelf in the greenhouse...


    Another shot:


    ...and a pic of the greenhouse and all the new Utrics I received for trade this week:

    Savage Garden says they need a "dry winter rest period." Maybe you can dry them out and show them who's boss? It might stimulate flowering - lots of plants need to experience winter-like conditions to flower.

    They usually flower when rootbound. Maybe just wait a few more seasons to grow more roots? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    There are very different clones of U. longifolia: I got one from a friend which refused to flower for at least 10 years, he had plants in each terrarium with giant root balls!

    There are also very floriforous clones: For example U. longifolia var. forgetiana or the floriforous clone from carniflora. Those plants flower in small pots (7cm) readily!

    Cheers,

    I agree that there are different clones. I have grown a clone of U. longifolia for about 5 years and it has never flowered. Then, last March I received a small Utric plug that was labeled U. alpina. It grew well, but imagine my surprise when it flowered in early December and turned out to be U. longifolia, not U. alpina.

    The flower has persisted for 2 months now and even the first flower on the scape shows no signs of fading. It grows in my unheated greenhouse where the winter night temperature reaches about 35F. The other longifolia clone is just poking along and shows no sign of producing a flower.

    WOW that flower looks surreal!
    I really have to stop looking at pictures before I get TOO traumatized.
