    Hey, I have never noticed anything but the longer leaves on my U. praelonga (which just flowered for me! woohoo!). I should get a picture while it's flowering. I also should have photographed my U. paulinae's ONE flower that I got a couple months ago.

    Max! Yes you should! The U. paulinae has an unopened bud at the moment. I was giving up on the various spikes that just seemed to want to remain as spikes, but today I saw the U. tridentata with a light purple bud opening up. I wish I had a camera on hand. I just borrow and hope my co-worker will bring it in. It's hit or miss with me.

    I think U.sandersonii will be my vendetta. Right, Sheridan? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    OK, I got a pic of my U. praelonga. Here it is, with it's one yellow flower. It's pretty ragged, but it lives outdoors year round, and has a lot of good spring growth.

    Oh, and yes, some pygmy dews are in there like they are everywhere in my outdoor collection.

    Are you sure that that isn't some stray invader in your pot of U. praelonga? My plant makes far bigger flowers on a much taller stem, and the flower shape looks wrong...





    Cheers.

    Yeah, it must be a stray or something, although no other leaves are visible in the pot (just moss and drosera). I saw the yellow flower and figured it had flowered, but yours is clearly different. Hmmmm. Your stolons are also much longer.

    I would say you have U. praelonga growing in your pot Max. The difference in the tall narrow leaf length is probably just a cultural thing. The plant in flower however is not that species. Looks like there are some tiny dried seed pods in there also. Will venture a guess that the yellow flower is U. subulata.. which can be quite nice when it does indeed produce a normal flower.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
