    Just a comment. Nothing is absolute you are aboslutely right rattler. Just as an example I am growing a cattleya alliance orchid in a clay pot with sphag moss. This is considered a big no no with that type of orchids and according to everyone it should be dead now, but its thriving. So everyone just needs to give their experience and let the one asking the question use it as guidelines. That is my rule of thumb.

    I am also new at these. I'm confused at the water level question also..
    So if I put all terrs. ones in pots in a terrarium. Say the pots are 4in high, then I should fill the terrarium/or tray underneath at 3in high?
    Also, whats the best/least lighting for these?

    actually lots of ppl who have good luck growing it seem to have good luck flowering it. its no where near as hard as U. tricolor and some others to flower. if it grows good for you it should flower. this species supposed to have to reach a minimum pot size before it will flower. its one species that you need to grow in larger pots if you want it to flower.

    Im afriaid I disagree, many growers in Europe say the same as me, I have had mine for 2 years and its doing great, but no flowers
    Im going to increase its pot size frokm 15 cm to 25 cm this year, and if it doesnt flower by next summer then I domt think it will ever flower

    hmmm most of the flowering reniformis photos i have seen are from European growers as it seems more common over thare though its not really rare here either. most growers notes that i have seen state that you need a 20cm-25cm pot to get it to bloom reliably. i have been told by many European and US growers that its not terribly difficult to bloom once its large and established. but most ppl try to keep it in a 15cm pot or smaller to save on space and they are going by the fact all their other Utrics have bloomed in 5-10cm pots

    I have 160 watts of light over a 20 gallon long aquarium. am thinking of just buying another shoplight even though it will "hang" over both ends a bit.
