    These are all my terrestrial Utrics:
    U. bisquamata (small flowered form)
    U. calycifida 'Mrs. Marsh'
    U. calycifida 'Yog-Sothoth'
    U. lateriflora
    U. livida
    U. longifolia
    U. microcalyx
    U. odorata
    U. paulinae
    U. praelonga
    U. prehensilis
    U. sandersonii
    U. sandersonii (blue)
    U. sp. 2
    U. subulata
    U. tricolor
    U. tridentata
    U. welwitschii

    They are all growing in a 1:1 mix of sand and peat.

    Would any of them do better in a different medium?

    i have been growing the calycifidas in a mix of peat and lfs, approximatly 1:1 and fluff it up a bit. it seems to really like it. this is also one species(along with longifolia) that likes to have room to run(especially 'Yog Sothoth') and i think a 3.5 inch pot should be minimum. sandersonii doesnt care what it grows on as long as its damp. all the others i grow in either pure peat or after i got some sand a 1:1 mix of peat and sand.
