Hello to all!

One seed of U. longifolia germinated approximately week ago. The question is:is it too early to plant it pot? And mix, composed of dead peat moss and perlit (1:1) covered with chopped moss, is suitable for further growing?

I grow it too, in sphagnum.
I Have 1 pot growing as epiphytic and another growing with water level until the surface (each time i water it). Both thrive well, but only out of terrarium, it seems that the plant likes temperature droops at night.

Nice pics :thumbsup:

I grew this utric from seed before with high level of water, but not successfully due to abnormal substrate (as I know now). Sphagnum looks to be the most suitable substrate.


In addition, another seed is trying to germinate.

I change a topic name to more general - I want to use it for all my questions.

I'm growing U.alpina and sandersonii nearly month and it's look like that alpina have adapted - new leaf appeared..

But question about sandersonni is the main - what is growing with it? I hope you can see narrow leaves between normal leaves of sandersonii (one uncommon plant is on foreground). Is it another species of utric or some weird leaves of sandersonii?

[...] another growing with water level until the surface (each time i water it).

I grew mine the same too, for a while, but then it started to develop purple patches on leaves and they become deformed. I suspect that it was fungal but it never stopped it from flowering every year. No amount of fungicide treatments would clear the patches. I now grow it on the drier side and the purple patches have gone.

Interesting - my plant did this too. Then i moved it directly under the spraying system of my greenhouse and made a protection from direct sunlight and the patches are gone. I thought that it was coused by low air humidity, but your experience is almost opposite to mine.
And my substrate experience - my plant grows the best in peat-perlite-sand mix (1:1:1).

I'm going to buy new Utrics :blanchetii, dichotoma and nephrophylla. First two are terrestrial but what about nephrophylla? Search shows that somebody grows it like terrestrial, other - like epiphytes(if I correctly understood). I think about two variants: peat:perlit 1:1 covered with moss or pure moss.

Upd. wiki says tat it's lithophytic, so, perhaps moss or even moss with perlit would be better...

I grow nephrophylla in peat:sand mix and it grows very well. It is not picky for a substrate.

I think it is a species of Arenaria, a common weed of cultivated plants, but difficult to see from your photo

This unknown plant is going to flower, so question "what is it" could be solved very soon.

I also noticed new leaves of alpina - it's quite hopeful. Does alpina need night drop of temperature or it can survive without this part of condition or it has vital important?

It likes a temperature drop at night.

My alpina grows well, but the oldest of new appeared leaves have reddish edges and tips. I think I am not able to make a photo of it. Do you consider this to be a problem?

My firs utric was grown from seed near year ago. it should be sandersonii, but it isn't, only bisqumata is suspected. This plant doesn't want to flower.

I know that there could be few reasons, for example light, but real sandersonii which I obtained week or two ago is going to do this.

But one of the possible reasons can be this strange things. Their colour is between light-brown and black. Have any idea of what it could be. It 100% is not plant.

Sorry, this photo is not very good quality, but better I will able to at the weekend.

One more photo:

My firs Utric. flower - Utricularia sandersonii, white flower. I think strange form (three "ears" and two "hands") is because it is not flower of main patch and because it is first :)

Hi to all!

I come back again with new question :)

I want to grow U. gibba from seed. So, will I only put them into glass with water?

Thanx!

Oleksy

I want to continue my previous question about gibba from seed. Anyone did this? How many time it takes to germinate? It can germinate in a bit unclear water?
Thank you.

I hope it is gibba seedling(s) - what it can be if there was only peat and seeds :)
