Hi again!

There is really one orchid. When I saw it photo first time, I decided to obtain it just when it be possible.

But this not main topic of this post.

I want to tell about my growing of nelumbifolia and humboldtii in water.

humboldtii 25 May - 7 June

nelumbifolia

In case of humboldtii there progress ( perhaps due to size of plant), nelumbifolia looks growing too, but slowly.

The jars are standing between two CFL, but I read that it can be not good. Maybe need they less light in water (when they grow in water-filled leaf axils, they don't have big amount off it)? In future i will pot then more traditionally — in sphagnum.

But if anybody have suggestions to this, I'll be very glad.

And one more. I noticed that nelumbifolia have some strange dark-purple "thisngs". What can it be?

Thanks!

Hi again!

Yep, that purple things are traps. One mystery is solved :)

I didn't expect that my blanchetii would flower so vigorously. So, it compensate size of the flowers :)

My nephrophylla also try to bloom. This plant is very persistent. The first flower stalk just dry out. Second was broken, when I was reppoting it. Now there are new three, but it looks that only one will be able to bloom ( I hope)

Hi!

Please, share your experience of alpina watering. Mine is growing in closed container where is another pot with water, so humidity is high and moss don't dry out. So, have I water this plant regularly, for example once per week or while moss is wet I can do nothing? And what way of watering is preferable: place pot into glass with water for some time or just pour water through pot?

Thanks

Hi to all!

I have question about nephrophylla. It was quite good, but now it become dry out and all flower-stalks except one stop develop and become dry too. Too much light?

Any advice is appreciated

Thanx!

Hm-hm. It looks that Utric, which is going to bloom, is not dichotoma. First doubt I got when saw flower stalk - it had other apperiance.

Flower hasn't opened yet, but it very similar with my blanchetii (Chapada Diamantina), only a bit bigger and have some violet color.

Tomorrow will see.

The plant is flowering. Am I right saying that it is blanchetii?

In comparison with my U.blanchetii (Chapada Diamantina)

Hi!

Finally, my first Utric. blooms. It need identification. Is it subulata? I am not sure, because photos on cpp looks a bit different. Or, maybe it is not fully opened...

I have got identical Utricularia, I'm curious what species is this. This flower looks like Utricularia bisquamata on this photos. I'm waiting for more experienced users.

Edit: Definitely is not subulata.

Thanks for reply. I agree that it isn't subulata - it has a bit different shape and colour.

I think this is a form of Utricularia bisquamata. One form has small, almost white flowers. It self polliantes and becomes a weed, so keep it away from other utricularia.

I usually use mix peat: quartz sand - 1:1 or with excess of peat. Two species — longifolia and nephrophylla I also grow in pure sphagnum.

It is when they have a fungal infection :wink:

My U. longifolia has had purple patches on the leaves ever since I received it, which was many years ago, and it still flowers profusely every year.
