    I am looking at possibly getting a U.bisquamata Bettys Bay' and a U.tricolor in the future. Are these plants relatively easy to grow and do they spread quickly? Also, does anybody have a reliable U.S. supplier where I might could find these as I have been looking for them for a long time and I can't seem find any U.S.suppliers.
    Thanks,
    Dewy

    they are easy but you'll have a hard time getting U. tricolor to flower.

    U. tricolor is a weed, well as close as a plant can get to being a weed without flowering and producing seed. it is simple to grow but darn near impossible to flower.

    on 'Betty's Bay', while i dont grow it i would assume it is similar to typical bisquamata in all respects except flower size, in which case its another weed. im using some in a dart frog tank since i figure it will spread faster than moss and make a nice ground cover.

    I hope it's not impossible! With any luck, these scapes actually belong to the U. tricolor in this pot. This was taken today:

    It certainly IS by accident! I just put it in peat/sand like the rest of my utrics, and put it outside on my deck. It gets afternoon sun and is exposed to the seasons.

    Caps, don't get your hopes up just yet. U. tricolor is notorious for putting up lots of those tall scapes, but they almost always abort before they produce flowers. Check out this thread from 2003

    I can agree fully with Bob. I had 12 of those last year but nothing came of them.
