    Hey, this is my first U. longifolia flower. I had no idea they were so big! What a great looking flower, and there are lots more to come!

    Max, that is gorgeous! What are your growing conditions? I have several leaves, but no inclination to send up stalks.

    Thanks!
    Jim,
    I have it sitting under a 400watt MH light in my grow room. The conditions are essentially highland, but it's in a warm spot in the room. It flowered after moving down there, so I think a change in conditions triggered the flowering. I'm shocked at how big the flower is. It's like an inch across at least.

    I just moved mine to my version of a mini-bog, so I am wondering if normal sunlight, combined with swampy media, and ~25 degree diurnal temps would cause it to flower.

    Hey, so far so good with the hursuit / veitchii cutting.
