    Unhappy

    I was looking around the website and I noticed that "Aquatic CP's" were coming soon and I wondered what kinds there were. I was wondering if anyone knew some good links to pictures and descriptions of some types.

    thanks

    If you'll check the forum topic which says Utricularia, Aldrovanda, etc you'll learn about several different aquatic plants. That's the forum heading for the aquatic cp's.
    The opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of the management. And the management will be happy to hear that!

    Hey glamp88,

    There are lots of aquatic carnivores, but the commonest in cultivation, easiest to grow, and the one that will probably be sold here (just guessing) is Utricularia gibba.

    Some relevant links:

    Aldrovanda (another genus)

    Some cp are sometimes below the water level, e.g. Sarracenia psittacina or Genlisea species.
