Utricularia humboldtii

Recommended Posts

My large plant of Utricularia humboldtii finally flowered after 2 years!

I could self-pollinate it and got a couple of capsules, so I wanted to try the experience of seeing the small octopus-like seedlings coming out of the seed coat only after a few hours in water. Enjoy the pictures!

Here below a photo of the flower

Great sequence of photo's Giuseppe - cant wait for my humboldtii to flower just so I can get some seeds just to watch first hand how quickly they start to grow!

Fantastic pics of the seeds!

In the U.S. it is unusual to see these in flower, so I appreciate the pictures you've posted.

It's also good to see you sowed the seed on sphag... I used pure peat which seems to stunt their growth.
