    Aquatic Carnivores Giveaway!

    'Tis time to pay forward Paul's awesome giveaway from last week. To continue the generosity I am offering a starter "kit" of aquatic carnivores. I will include two or three strands of winter-hardy Aldrovanda, a sprig of Ultricularia inflata, and associated water plants to help level out the water chemistry (Typha for sure, some pennywort, and anything else that looks good for the donation come time of shipping). These plants, grown in a five-gallon bucket of peat substrate and clean water, have proven to be quite successful for me in the cultivation of the waterwheel plant. This setup has even over wintered the above plants in zone 6b. Be warned, though, some duckweed and green algae will probably be unavoidable.

    The nature of this giveaway makes it targeted toward first time aquatic plant growers, so that will factor into my decision regarding who receives the prize.

    Other stipulations include:

    -Shipping is on me
    -The winner must offer forth a suitable giveaway within the next month; your offering is to be listed in your response below for consideration
    -Offerings can be of any nature
    -I will include as much insight and instruction as the winner wants or needs

    To entice you, enjoy pictures of my various setups. Good luck!

    Very nice giveaway.
    I recently acquired a nice 45 gallon tank and plan on setting up a planted tank. I have a 5 gallon planted tank now but have never had aquatic carnivores, I always felt I never had the proper setup but now I do 😄. I currently have a nice accidental cutting of a miniature maxima. I had ordered from flytraps and the growth point snapped in transit so I stuck it Into some sphagnum and is now 6-7 inches tall and vining. Very easy beginners nep.

    that might go along well depending upon your setup. It seems to be ok as a marginal with or without roots and base underwater or out of water so long as it is kept moist. I have seen it or similar plants in relatively dry areas where it seemed happy as well.

    Uncle. I was trying to put up a picture of Cyperus Umbrella plant, Cyperus alternifolius, I believe.

    I am interested. I can giveaway some sundew seeds, or live sundews, or bladder worts. I have attempted aquatics before, but I haven't been successful with them (other than gibba). I have a spare bucket and peat. I would love to enter your giveaway
