    thats good to know. i found an aussie annual species by accident but if what Sean says is true about its close reletives producing minimal seed, i prolly wont have it for long if i get the seeds to germinate and produce blooms anyway. oh well the hunt is half the fun [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Pyro,

    I have been reading Taylor's monograph and dreaming of Orchidioides. Suck cool plants! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_o_32.gif[/img]

    Nice collection.

    Thanks Glenn. Yes Taylor can be an adictive thing to page through. One week I got really bored and dog eared every species in there I wanted. Let's just say that the book wouldn't close properly when I was done with that LOL.

    Rattler, some plants behave differently in cultivation that they do in nature so maybe your annual will turn out to grow longer. After all Taylor calls sandersonii an annual and I think most of us have pots of that that are a few years old (or older...)

    Not correct. Taylor on p. 228 states:

    Not likely I'm afraid. This species like its close relatives U. violacea and U. inaequalis only produce 'leaves' in a rosette and do not produce running stolons.

    You get many consecutive flowers from a single rosette but the plants themselves never spread.

    I wonder if the leaves of the annual species might behave like Pinguicula and possibly produce planteletts. Genlisea works like this. I haven't had enough annuals to make the experiment. I've tried it with U. multifada but that was a no go.

    My mistake. But I do know he states that one of the hyper common Utrics is an annual. Maybe it was livida...??
