So I have this Utricularia reneformis that I picked up earlier last year that came in a 4" pot. It was fairly well filling the pot when it arrived and over time I would tip it and pop the "root ball" out to look at the traps and the progression of growth. About half a year ago I noticed, during one of my inspections, a tiny night crawler. He was maybe 2/3"long and a millimeter or so in girth. So short story long, I left him/her in there doing what earthworms do until recently I repotted the bladderwort and saw my little slimy pet population has doubled in size and number.
So I'm sure their constant tunneling is aerating quite nicely and the plant material below ground looked quite healthy. There is not much to look at above ground for leaves though, with it keeping an average of three leaves at any given time. The holes in the sphagnum moss where the worms surely come up at night to vent through are certainly apparent!
Am I going to regret leaving these guys in there? Now that there is two there will surely be hundreds right? Anyone up for some trout fishing?
