  1. It's been a while since I've been on the forum. I've been extremely busy with school and exams and painting etc. etc. However, I thought I'd share about how some of my plants have done this winter. The apple of my eye at the moment is my U. quelchii, that I got from Stephen Morley about a year and a half ago..or maybe it was 2 and half years ago... Anyway, it has rocketed in growth and recently put forth not 1, not 2, but 3 flower scapes! The first is about to burst into flower which I am excited about. Utricularia quelchii by JimbO'Neill, on Flickr Utricularia quelchii by JimbO'Neill, on Flickr The plant has developed an extremely dense underground system with many tubers and new growth points appearing everywhere.

Unfortunately one was snapped off by accident. U. nelumbifolia putting on a good show! by JimbO'Neill, on Flickr U. nelumbifolia putting on a good show! by JimbO'Neill, on Flickr The proliferation in flowering of both my reniformis and nelumbifolia has allowed me to be able to hybridise them; the seedlings are growing right now, it will be interesting to see how they turn out. My windowsill Nepenthes have been doing well too. This could be because I had a sudden surplus of baby mice when 2 of my females became accidentally pregnant. Let's just say that I've got fewer mice now and my plants will be growing well for the next while...

  3. Burmannii was growing all around here in the sand. Finally, right on the edge of Koh Kong town, there was some marshy ground with yellow-flowered Utrics. These might be the same as the ones shown above, which might be U. bifida, or one or other or both might be U. odorata. Again, awful photography. Oh, and to finish off, a snapshot of some Utrics growing in the pond in front of Angkor Wat. Thanks for looking!

  4. Hi, Well, looks like mine are doing a bit better. I have 14 of them and the biggest are now 3 cm large (the big seedlings in the previous pictures were in fact some N. bokorensis... seeds have fallen in the pot... ahem...). Besides, the small attenboroughii are now growing faster. Anything special in my set up? I don't hink so. But the humidity level is very high. The seedlings are gown in a closed tank (with high light levels). Cheers, Fran├žois.
