I noticed a weird bump coming out of the water level from one of my U. humboldtii trays. It's slowly getting bigger and I've never seen anything like it. I hope it's a flower scape. If it gets big enough to photograph, I will post a picture of it. Needless to say it's never flowered or even grown much in the last few years.
I've never had my longifolia flower despite it growing like crazy in my nepenthes' terrarium. Also my U. tricolor has never flowered. So probably the bump is the Loch Ness monster or a tribble. I hope it isn't the thing from the Alien movie series.
Good call bumpin this up Tommy, every time I go looking at my U.longifolia (this is around when it "spiked" last year, but so far nothin yet, and the flowers were truly spectacular so I hope for a repeat- I tried to get a pic with my normal camera but it turned out like a tiny purplish blur with a yellow smudge in the middle of a very blurry, ugly picture) I remember this thread and wonder, but by the time I come back online I forget...
Any updates?? (tho I suspect we'd have seen a fairly proud picture by now )

It turned out to be a stolon twice as big as any so far which was unexpected because it is from a new shoot. No flowers sad to say. I did notice some of the frond like surface stolons which are fairly new.
