So I bought 3 plugs of U. Sandersonii about 3 months ago, and they've sent up buds once before, but they just ended up drying up. I think I had them to dry, so I repotted one plug into a "Monkey Pod" and it seems to be growing much better since some water collects in the pod itself. The Pod is inside my vivarium right now.

I also put some in a cup of sphagnum and keep that with water at all times now.

The 3rd plug i put it a little "Iwagumi" bowl that i had around, and so far all 3 seem to be responding positively.

Both the cup and the bowl are on a North-East facing window sill, I just potted these and its a bit cloudy out today so not much light.

im not sure if its just me or not, but i cant see the images.

U. Sandersonii like it really wet, i give mine a shower every few days and its shooting out flowers really fast.

Can you see these? I have been keeping them a lot more soaked and they seem to be doing better. The one in the glass mug has a bud right now and it seems to be developing, but i guess we'll see.

I have a bisquamata and subulata that I can't get to flower, the leaves are spreading rapidly and are growing densely at least. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.

Haha Yeah! I didn't see it until I posted the picture :lol: It's the seeds I got from Hollyhock (Thanks again!)

But anyways, my little "Makeshift" windowsill broke the other day and the bowl shattered so i had to relocate them all into the glass mug and now it's further from the the window since i dont have anywhere to put it :cry:

So for the meantime, i put it next to my terrarium where it gets some indirect light from the terrariums lighting, but i don't think it'll do well there.

No this is the typical form, i did hear that the blue form didn't flower as much though....maybe they sent me the blue form by accident? they did have both forms instock when i ordered.

Those plugs also look like they just need more time to settle in as well, utrics in general flower a lot more once they start to fill up their part or at least get in a good amount of vegetative growth.

Should the water ALWAYS be at soil level, or should i wait to add more water once theres no more water in the cup?

Mine stopped flowering when the water got low, and started flowering again when I increased the water to the soil surface.
