Finally! When I've arrived at home today from university, surprise awaits me! My first bigflowered utric flower. I've waited for buds to open for ten weeks. The flower is not fully open now but still it's quite a show, isn't it? I was surprised how vivid the pink color is (probably from enough light?) - I thought it will be more pale...

Hope you'll like it

Nice pictures, and a nicely coloured flower! Mine were always much paler.

Congrats

Nice plant, congratulations.

Is this substrate only live sphagnum?

Yes I use only pure sphagnum or in combination with with perlite. But in U. endresii pot is invaded with some others mosses so I have to try to put her into pure one once the flowers fade away...
