    This isn't my plant but it sure is pretty. Poor photo quality but if anyone can tell me what it is, that would be nice.

    The color is different from the U. sandersonii I have which is flowering right now. Would different potting mediums combined with different lighting create such a diverse color range between the two? My flowers are considerably "bluer" than this particular Utric. The leaves are the same.

    Lighting and temperature might alter the color a bit. With blue/violet colored flowers though it is really hard to say for sure if the photo color is correct.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Yes, I have both U. sandersonii and U. sandersonii 'Blue'. The U. sandersonii clump photographed is not my plant.

    Say Tony, I placed both U. sandersonii plants side by side and that was when I noticed the color difference. Mine is darker. My soil is a considerably different mix and my lighting and temperature range was consdierably more stable than where that clump came from. You may have something on the temperature as my plant has been maintained at around 68-70F and the other plant did not have the same consistent temps. Thanks for mentioning that. Makes perfect sense to me.

    Yay, bunny ears! Last March I received U. sandersonii, the blue version, and U. livida, After a month or so of trying to figure out how to take care of them, I put them at a NW facing window sill. By June the straight up U. sandersonii was blooming profusely. I'll go with light, water, and late spring as the forumula for bunny ears.
