Utricularia menziesii flower evolution

Recommended Posts

Brilliant shots. Mine is just flowering for the first time in around 20 years of growing the species. It's a much paler flower though, I must try to get some images, but couldn't hope to match the quality of these ones!


Well done, and I'd be interested to hear what your conditions are as well.

Thanks for your comments.

The conditions are the same than my tuberous, they are in my garage but not in a terrarium, the temperature is about 15° (today 10° becaus it's cold outside).

The medium is very classical 50/50 sand peat. The light is strong and come from power led CREE XPG2 with a temperature not far from 6500°K

I don't know why the plant make a flower this year i got the last flower 3 years ago and i have not trick to have flowers,

i'm sorry but with this plant, i'm not the master it's the plant!

I take the pictures with a nikon D300 and a 105mm macro sigma lens.

The pictures are made with the focus stacking method.
