    Controlling Urticularia bisquamata is not as difficult as Paul would have you believe. If you have access to a military flamethrower it's no problem at all.

    On a more serious note, if you clip off the flowers before they set seed, it shouldn't spread invisibly. After that, just don't get any soil containing stolon pieces mixed with any other soil.

    Well, I tried and failed. It's really hard!!! they're pretty well established in the soil, esp under the Aliciae.

    Let's pray to Zeus and Athena that they haven't reproduced yet.

    Question, should I just uproot and repot the plants into new soil? I feel like that's a for sure way to do this. Some of the annoying Bladderworts are growing near the root. GOSH so annoying.

    take leaf cuttings or root cuttings that are rinsed well and you might get a clean plant in the future. emphasis on might.....

    If you mean cleaning them off of the D. aliciae, it's pretty much impossible for the plant you have. As Mach said, start over from a leaf cutting. The utric won't harm your D. aliciae, but it is rather annoying.

    On the other hand, if you want to prevent them from spreading to other pots, just make sure you clip the flowers every time they pop up. As long as it doesn't set any seed, then it shouldn't spread.

    People would rather get potted plants that are growing carpet moss and have weeds (the utric in particular) than having fresh clean media? I repot fresh all potted ordered plants, because *I* don't want that kind of stuff being shipped to me. In fact, if I can only get it potted, I transplant it anyway. I guess that's just me 0_o
