    I found something. It's actually called aeroponics, and it's exactly as you described!

    Sheridan: yup, He can get the blue to flower! I cannot. However, I got the U. paulinae to do so. Ah, a little friendly competition!

    No, that hasn't sent up anything - yet. I have tridentata, sp.2, and lateriflora flowering. the tricolor has a spike but no flower. I think I have to flood and up the light more for the blue to flower, so I have read.

    i havent gotten tridentata to flower yet but i havent had it for long. tricolor i gave up on. my U. lateriflora is constantly in flower. i would like my praelonga to flower but not terribly worried as its going to look similar to some of my other yellow flowered Utrics(odorata and prehensilis). there are spikes in my tricolor pot but its stupid subulata that im trying to exterminate

    I get lots of plugs of prairie plants this way...the seedlings are put in trays that don't have bottoms. The roots go down there, and dry off and fall away. It's called air pruning, and it's supposed to prevent circular roots.

    But there is a growing medium from the top of the tray to the opening at the bottom, so I don't think it's considered hydroponic.

    I have a jade plant that fell out of its pot more than a year ago and has a tiny root ball with a small amount of dirt. The plant was fairly wrinkly by the end of winter, but plumped right up once it went outdoors again.
