  1. According to Taylor's monograph it is a terrestrial, although I have seen people refer to it as an epiphyte as well. The only photos that I have seen of it in the wild have been growing on the ground. At this point your plant is either dead or established, so my experience likely isn't particularly useful to you. But, for others, I have had success growing it in a standard peat/sand mix with a high water table. It seems that some people assume that all of the plants in section Orchidioides are epiphytes. And, I wouldn't be surprised if people assumed that longifolia is in that section because of the large flowers and range. But no, it is section Foliosa. I'm not sure where the misinformation is coming from, but I'd wager a guess that it's related to this.
  2. I would probably treat this one as I would all of my other terrestrial utrics. 2:1 peat/sand, a medium amount of sun, high water table. It is in the same section as livida and sandersonii - so I'd probably start off growing it as you would those two species. http://sarracenia.com/faq/faq5618.html.
  3. It grows perfectly happily in a 2:1 peat/sand mix for me. Make sure to acclimate it to your humidity after shipping! Collin
  4. Utricularia seeds are notoriously short lived, especially outside of a refrigerator. I can't say about that species in particular, but I wouldn't have high hopes for germination.
  5. For sure! Some of the Orchidioides section do, including alpina, campbelliana, jamesoniana, and quelchii. There are also many other species from other sections as well, Taylor's monograph is really helpful and describes morphology, distribution, and habitat at a species level.
