>hi all.
does anyone out there know any helpful tips on growing u.alpina?

My plant is currently in a loose mix of charcoal, sand, peat and pine bark
and is planted in a mesh aquatic plantpot.To maintain humidity I have the pot
sitting in a saucer, over which I've placed a demi-john brewing jar (with the
bottom removed).
My U alpina gets indirect sunlight and stays in the house, so that it never
really gets cold (is this correct?).
I must be doing something right as the plant is flowering.Are the blooms self
fertilising or will I have to do the honours?
