There are some great plants there.

It's somewhat ironic, but for me, the old Iperua group has been somewhat tougher than most of the original Orchidioides. I've been growing many of the Iperua for years and still have not found 'ideal' growing conditions for them. U. nephrophylla is a gorgeous little weed (so it's easy & doesn't count). My 1st U. reniformis flowers were a few months ago & it seemed like a fluke. I've not gotten any flowers from U. humboldtii or U. geminiloba --- what's up with that??

Yeah - they're definitely an unappreciated group and to make it even more difficult, some of the older, super-experienced growers have faded away -- major bummer. Even on this forum, Moof used to post all the time on utrics (one example
) but he gave up his plants a year or so ago & rarely posts anymore....

Good luck with it. For reasons unknown to me, many people struggle with it. Feel free to share pics, ask questions and share new info on anything you learn - especially if you manage to get some flowers!
