    I saw U. sandersonii growing in a tree fern pot made for orchids. Like this. It will grow through the sides of the pot.

    But imagine what would happen if you used one of these!

    If I had to guess, I would say U. gibba. But I am a long way from Mississippi, and I am not sure what species grow there.

    I concur. There is, however, a clone of U. parthenopipes around that looks very similar to the white U. blanchetii. You could key it out to be sure.

    I found that they took a while to get established in the peat/sand mix, but once they did they were pretty much maintenance free.

    I grew all my genlisea side by side in the same media and water tray as my utrics. Media was sand and peat. I would water them to within a 1-2 cm of the surface then water again when the tray was...

    I don't think a utric would help much.

    What kind of bugs are they? Pings seem to catch a lot of fungus gnats.

    Although U. praelonga will not die if not given dormancy, it probably requires some kind of temp change in order to trigger flowering. I base this statement on the observation that people who grow it...

    I have my doubts about this plant. For one, all the specimens of U. microcalyx that I ever saw were the same odd-looking clone of U. livida (or at least it keyed out to be U. livida). But definitely...

    U. blanchettii & U. flaccida are easy to grow and have nice flowers. Plus they are a little less common than the old standards. And U. welwitschii is nice too, with cool twining flowers.

    Of the plants that I grew, the "giant" was a much larger and more robust plant that the "regular" form, with leaves at least twice the size.

    Looks like U. uliginosa to me. But it could be many things. It would probably flower if you grew it as a terrestrial, then we would know for sure.

    It's nice to see a picture of a *real* U. steyermarkii. For years people have been getting a that darn misidentified U. tridentata clone in their collection and calling it U. steyermarkii.

    I got on seed out of many to germinate once by floating them on the surface of a petri dish full of water. I was not able to get the seedling to last long enough to become a mature plant.

    I would recommend U. blanchetii, it's just as easy to grow and flower as sandersonii and livida, but with more colourful flower. It makes a nice change from the standard beginners' species. If you...
