Utricularia of the Phyllaria section

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I would like to know how many species/strains are in cultivation of these adorable beauties, and who grow them successfully ? I have seen some german growers have very good results with them, but I don't understand the language, and so, although google translate is very helpful, the GFP forum stays quite a dark place for me :).

I have been growing them for a few months, and they seem to survive at least, which is a pretty cool first achievement :).

Not sure whether there are in dormancy or not, even though I think so, but I can't wait them to spread and eventually make flowers.

A not-on-purpose cutting that I did while I was removing some smothering moss. Seems it is recovering :

U. furcellata [Gg Murud, Sarawak}. A very recent and unique germinating seed :

I know there are at least some strains from Taiwan and Hong Kong. Unfortunately, I didn't manage to make the seeds of the Taiwan one germinate.

I wish more of them were in cultivation : U. inthanonensis, U. spinomarginata, U. phusoidaoensis, U. garrettii... :heart:

Wow, my compliments and congrats to get so much species of this section! I am after these for about two years, but so far no success. If you would have some for swap in the future, please remember me... :-)

Well, this is a very good news, I can't wait to see them opened :yes:.

And here it is, the flower of U. striatula Sibuyan, Philippines. Quite small, around 5mm :

I grew Utricularia striatula while I was in Taiwan in peat. I used a plastic tub with a lid so the humidity was high. When I got back to the states, I put it in an identical setup but the plant melted. I don't know what I did wrong, since some Utricularia biloba I also brought back with me thrived in the same setup. 

 

You can see how much the plant grew from when I first got it.

The plant in the last photo was flowering; unfortunately I did not get any pictures of the flower. ( #`Д´)

 

I would love to have another chance at growing this species.

Thank you for your contribution to this thread. Pity you don't have any close-up of the flower though :).

 

I need to repot this plant but here are the leaves as well :

And the flower in their terrarium environment :

I've quickly attempted to pollinate them.

Beautiful flowers! The plant in my first two pictures just melted away after flowering but the one in the last picture didn't. I think I've read somewhere that Utricularia striatula tends to die after flowering but your plant looks great! If I could grow them again I would probably use sphagnum moss instead of peat.
