My small Utric collection exists on a single shelf, each in their own species pot. They are all (mostly) kept isolated from each other with no trespassing so far but I keep a watchful eye, despite constant significant efforts of the sandersonii's to climb out up the walls of their containers and out of their isolation. I think this is my first winter with the Utrics, so I was delighted to see a number of them bloom. Blooming now are sandersonii white, sandersonii blue, graminifolia, pubescens, calycifidia, blanchetii and subulata. I was expecting to have to wait much longer to see these bloom, so its a bit of a wonderland now.

I tried to get pictures of them, but my camera's macro just isn't up to the job(read "buy a new camera"). So I am asking members to post some pictures here to share the blooms of your Utrics. Amazing plants. Thank you.

I have just discovered that I have a Utricularia graminifolia in one of my pots. Do you know how big they have to be to bloom, and if they are self-pollinating?

I have a couple Utrics, one intentional and one a hitchhiker.
Utricularia bisquamata is everywhere.
Utricularia sandersonii is a pretty plant, the Angry Bunny flowers are its trademark.
Here are a couple of fresh photos.

Graminifolia is easier to bloom than I thought. My cultures are about 2" high and two of them are only 1.5 inches wide. They like it wet. All of my cultures have been blooming for a couple months now. This utric likes water a lot. I keep mine with water level just below surface and moderate, not strong light.
