    Utricularia will not harm your plants. The added bonuses are they usually have pretty flowers and they bladders with catch fungus gnat larvae.

    Utricularia will often speed up the break down of peat moss though.

    Grumpus, you can try repotting but the tiniest bit of Utricularia stolon will eventually grow out. Yes, people usually love or hate Utricularia. I'm not overly fond of them spreading to my other pots but don't mind them in isolation.

    Can't wait to see the UNCC photos.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I was going to say U. bisquamata as well.

    Thanks for saying so, but Travis/rattler are the real experts, at least in the U.S..

    Grumpus - You'll like them. Those stalks look exactly the U. subulata I had in my pots. I managed to separate them out during several repottings. I don't think they're THAT bomb-proof. You can basically kill any cp (except pings, etc) by letting them dry out excessively.

    But you wouldn't want to do that to your lovely bladderwort....

    Although they did not make flowers for you this time around, try sowing their seed. Then you might just get a clone that actually puts out flowers instead of just seed pods.

    Warm temps and high water levels along with fresh seed increase your germination rates.

    Anything that eats fungus gnat larvae is ok by me. I'm not sure what to do with them yet, but I won't try to purge them.

    Heh, a month ago I got one deathbox D. adelae on a lark, now I have 4 different species of CP (including the Utricularia) in 6 pots and I'm off to look into germinating seeds of things I never heard of before today...

    Somebody stop me.

    Lol.

    That came from a Lowes Death Cube?! I've never had that sort of luck before.

    Oh yeah, you'll want a lotta light to sprout those seeds.

    No, no.. it was a D. adelae I got at Lowe's and it was nowhere near that healthy. I took a plantlet off the adelae that is doing well, but the mother plant spent the last month dying back and just now put up its first leaf...

    That capensis came from the UNCC plant sale, but I don't think it was grown there. I don't know who the grower is, but the plants looked very nice like the VFT I got here...

    Well you chose a capensis with a flower stalk on it too, so you can try to germinate utrics, and drosera seed.

    OOOOO scary.
