Interesting clone Maurizio! Clearly different from those I grew (e.g. my avatar)

Congrats to your success -

Martin

Really nice flowers.
Somewhere i´ve heard that this species is often flowering to death so you should pollinate them to receive some seed.

Best regards,

Dani

Beautiful plant, congrats for getting it to flower! Pity that it is so rare in cultivation, it's very hard to get one - I hope this will change in the future though:)

Anyway this species should be perennial. On Taylor's "The genus Utricularia: A taxonomic monograph" it is said "probably perennial" and on "florabase" it is said "perennial" (http://florabase.dec...se/profile/7142). I hope to be able to keep it alive.

I have some growing at home but I'm still away for Christmas. Hoping that when I get back mine will be flowering, or close to flowering.

Some photos from last year

Tropicbreeze,

I saw what looked like a Drosera binata in one of your photos. What other species of CPs have you found in your area?

Cheers,
Tim
