    I have U. praelonga and unlike other terrestrial Utrics, it has two, green parts to its above ground anatomy - the usual oval shaped "leaves" and grass-like "leaves". What do the gasss-like parts do?

    I did a little investigating and found the grasslike parts are connected. This is ones species with two above ground looks.

    Hmm I guess you'll have to wait for a Utric expert to show up

    your right, it has two different leaves/lolons. U. humboldtii has two also and apperantly looks quite a bit like U. praelonga. mine grows like a weed but has shown no interest in flowering though.

    U. humboldtii grows long thin leaves when young, changing to the normal paddle-shaped ones as it gets odler.

    U. praelonga produced both types of leaves at the same time all the way through its life. Round/spatulate ones at ground level and long thin ones up into the air. Grow it in live LFS, stand in water all year long, subject to direct sunlight and allow to get cold (down to freezing) in winter and you ought to get the large yellow flowers in spring-summer.

    Cheers.
