This is another new arrival and yet another epiphytic Utricularia species.
Apparently, there is more than one clone of Utricularia asplundii out there in cultivation, with at least one of them being very difficult to coax flowers from - this isn't that one.
This one supposedly flowers nonstop.
In fact, it was shipped out on the 16th of September, arrived on the 20th and stayed in it's shipping bag until the 28th, when it was eventually potted up into its current pot.
It came with unopened flowers on a flower stalk, but I just assumed that it would abort those flowers.
But that wasn't the case with this dependable fellow.
With a Canadian Federal Election approaching soon on October 21, and politicians promising Canadian voters everything, it would be nice if those eventual winners were able to follow through on their election promises the way this clone follows through with its flowering.
The promise of a chicken in every pot is unlikely to manifest for all of us, but that would certainly be better than getting a U. subulata in every pot.

stevebooth: I trust the ceremony was more successful where you are, out of the 30-40mm of rain the infallible Beeb promised, with possible dangerous levels of flood wate, I’ve had 3mm. A decent amount for a woodlice bath, but not enough to water much.

stevebooth: Too true the bogs are at the lowest level for the entire year, I don’t really want to get the RO out.
