Hi guys

I've just had U. schultesii come into flower. Does anyone know much about it?

Cheers
Steve

Hi Fredders,

Sorry to say, but probably very few all over the world knows about this species more than the famous monograph of Peter Taylor.

According to the monograph, U. schlutesii grows in low(<450m) wet savanna from southeast Colombia to Southern Venezuela(i. e. the northern end of the Amazon Basin), flowering in September and October.

I hope you propagate this species all right for distribution among other CP fans some day ;)

Very nice flower, reminds me a bit the flowers of U.tridentata!

I hope you propagate this species all right for distribution among other CP fans some day ;)


I'm also hoping for that:)


Peter

Cool, thanks.

It's growing on a heat mat with my intermediate Neps at the moment and has about 6 flower scapes coming up so I'll have a crack at pollinating it.

I've only been growing it for 6 months and so far it doesn't seem to form spreading stolons like other Utric species.

Cheers

You sure that isn't U.tricolor? What's the origin?

Having seen the plant I can vouch that it definitely doesn't look like any other U. tricolor that I've seen. The leaves are quite different and form what appears to be a rosette. The flowers are also very small- I was quite surprised after seeing these images as I expected them to be much larger. The inflorescence was only about 7-8cm tall.

Pretty flower. Reminds me of U. longifolia.

U.tricolor is veeeeeeeery variable. :)

I have yet to see true U.schultesii in cultivation. Have you used Taylor's monograph to ID your plant?
