    I've always wondered about U. biloba, it has really nice blue flowers. And one of my questions is: Can this plant be grown as a terrestrial? Or is it strictly aquatic? I know U. gibba can be grown both ways, it this the case with U. biloba?

    I have it, but am only aware of it being aquatic. But then again, I don't know. Maybe Throckmoron will find this topic.

    It's on the window sill. I just received a sprig of it a couple weeks ago. I don't expect anything from it until next year. Do you think it would be worthwhile to try a piece of it outside?

    What about trying a piece terestrially? If you have enough to experiment. I know the azzola I have that I grow aquaticly seemed to go pretty good as a terestrial too. right along side some dews.

    Hmm, I've seen several pics on google that show it growing in peat/sand, with some stolons growing out. Jim, I dunno, it's from Australia, I think, but I spose you could grow it as an annual. I think I'll try it as a terrestrial, if I ever do get it. Where did you get yours Jim?

    It is an affixed aquatic. It grows anchored to the substrate with the leaves under water.

    Gotta love discussion forums! Mine came from Throckmoron. I'll add some substrate. What I'll do is put media in a strawberry container and have it be in a tub outside.
