Hi Brian

Looks like there will be a lot of flowers open very soon, I dont think I've seen a reducta about to flower before, infact I dont think I've seen many reducta pics at all so thanks for posting!!

Dont forget to post another pic when the flowers open :tu:

Hi Brian,

I have not seen flowering plants too till now, so i also would be very amused if you can take pictures from the fully opened flowers these days.

Best regards,

Dani

Strangely, it reminds me of a cluster of VFT buds.

Wow, amazing plants Brian!

I guess I'll have to wait a while for mine to flower.

Thanks Jeff...
Mine began sending up the flower spike in February! The flowering process seems to take a while and cool weather seems to encourage it. Remember to keep them drier during this time. :shock:
Happy Growing,
Brian.

Brian,

Your B. reducta looks like it is going to produce a lot of seeds! It looks great for a plant of this species growing in Sphagnum! Good work!

Take care,
Steve

Hi Brian,

nice flowers :yes: , they really are a little bit similar to those from Dionaea.
Do they have any smell?

Best regards,

Dani

Happy Growing,

I'd like to bring up this old thread in order to ask if somebody has been experimenting with ethylene to induce flowering of Brochinia or Catopsis.
Ethylene capsules are widely used at commercial bromeliad greenhouses to accelerate flowering.
For this instance, It is advised in several gardening fora, to put the whole plant in a bag with a ripe apple.
