I have a few different colonies of Utricularia Alpina, most of which are flowering all of the sudden so I'm assuming it has finally reached maturity? Anyhow the stuff is like a weed in my set up; epiphyte, terrestrial, aquatic etc. so I figured it's time to start thinning it out and sharing some of it. This particular "plug" is well established, room temp and RH hardened though still under lights, is putting out new growth and was taken from one of the colonies that has since begun to flower. I also have some larger and smaller plugs and one rather large flowering pot but I'll just post the pictures of the small room temp one for now, since it would make the best starter plant I'm sure. Make offers! Thanks for looking!

Highland Neps, Ultra Highland Neps and the like. Always looking to expand on the cephs and helis. I don't have many Drosera. I really like the pygmies of course. I have zero Fly Traps at the moment. I'm easy I think. Anything odd or "tricky" I have a soft spot for.

Do you have anything in mind?

Well, I don't have a much to trade. I have some U. Longafolia I could trade you.

What conditions are you giving it? Any luck getting it to flower?

Sorry for the delay in response. Been super busy rebuilding the cooling system. Cool flower! What are the conditions your giving it? What triggers flowering? How big is the plant, and how tall are the spikes? I'm limited for space :roll:
