Not yet fully there, do you know it's color? White or Lila?..
Not yet, I will post a pic when it flowers, I've just noticed a couple of other flower spikes starting to shoot as well.
The flowers on your Utricularia are beautiful.

Only gave it RO water so I’m going to get something else but it will be whatever the garden centres have
Love to get other types as I think they are so interesting

Awsome can't wait to see.. :)

It does surpisingly good on the window sil.. I didn't expect that, but it rewards me with a lot of flowers. Funny is the actual plant itself is so tiny it is barely indistinguishable from the mosses surounding it. It resambles UG,but maybe 5 times smaller. :)

The tiny grass like leaves few mm long, the moss sporecaps look like giants in comparance.

Thought I'd share a pic or two of my Drosera or Sundew. @Iain Sutherland kindly gave me a few plants that have since grown and started to flower.
Very healthy looking! I love Drosera and have plants to grow many more from seed. I don't actually have any regular D.capensis, but my D.capensis "Giant" has just started o flower at the same time as yours (I've attached some pictures below). Mine is 5 years old started from seed and is in a North-facing windowsill "bog" (just a Tupperware tub filled with sphagnum peat moss, sand and topped with live sphagnum). You cant see in the pictures, but it is actually a 4-inch long, kinda woody stem, lying on its side - unlike the D.regia which dominates the tub they share, which has harder, woody, upright stems. It's also shares the tub with some self-seeded D.capensis "Alba", some tiny self-seeded D.tokaiensis and some (again, self-seeded) Utricularia bisquamata.

If you ever fancy growing more from seed-its super easy (just a bit slow) and you should as thousands of seeds from that plant this year :D.

Your Utricularia are beautiful! The flowering one looks like U.bisquamata? Mine hasnt flowered in a couple of years, I think because it has been overgrown by various mosses. I think I'll have to pull some out and plant it in a separate pot soon, I want flowers again! Otherwise it's pretty much an invisible plant :lol:.
