U. quelchii and U. humboldtii

by iamjacksplants » Sat Apr 14, 2018 6:48 am

Anyone growing U. humboldtii or U. quelchii? If so, what are your conditions? Soil mix? Temps? Light? Pictures appreciated as well.

Thanks in advance,

U. humboldtii: Waterlogged Sphagnum on a windowsill or in highland conditions. I think seasonal variation is probably required for flowering. Not providing enough light seems to result in leaf deformation.

I grow U. quelchii in 100% live Sphagnum with typical highland conditions.

SerMuncherIV! I've been away from the forum for a while, how have you been? Great looking plant! Thanks for the pictures and info. When you say "typical highland conditions", 75F days and 55F nights? Somewhere in that neighborhood?

I just finished rebuilding my cooling system. It was pretty intermediate/highland. I'm shooting for highland/ultrahighland. Check it out.https://www.flytrapcare.com/phpBB3/highland-system-t32775-30.html

Cheers,

Great to see you back here again! Those temps are roughly what I get, it fluctuates seasonally (a bit higher in summer and a bit lower in winter).

Your plants are looking great! I think both U. quelchii and U. humboldtii would do quite well in your setup, you've definitely constructed it very well :D

Thanks SerMuncherIV! That's very encouraging coming from you. Your plant looks great. I'm embarrassed to post mine now. Haha. I only received mine March 31st. There's been mostly less than ideal nights since then as I'm working the kinks out of the new cooling system. Finally for a little over a week now they've been getting mid to low 50s at night. There's definate new growth on U. humboldtii and what I believe/hope is new growth on the U. quelchii. I'll try to point it out in the picture captions. Sorry for the funny angles and weird light. I'm not the best with a camera to begin with and then I was trying to get the new growth... Anyhow, I repotted them as well while I had them out. Now they're both in pure, live LFS. Thanks for looking.

U. humboldtii. The little stolon exploring off to the side has doubled since I received it.

U. quelchii. About as close as I can get before it just gets super blurry. It's down and to the right of the upper leaf. It's a different color green than the moss. Maybe I'm trippin...

Humboldtii repotted, no light or flash

Same shot just with a flashlight. Not sure which looks better so here's both.

A little closer. Alleged new growth is down maybe a half inch and to the right just a bit from the stem of the redder leaf towards the top. If you can zoom in... squint... hope... hahaha

All settled back in. It's coldest in front, warmer towards the back. I tried to place the humboldtii so the exploring stolon is heading right at the big clump of loose moss in front of it.

Come on guys! Conditions and pics! I know SerMuncher and I aren't the only ones here growing these.
