    Well, got both U. longifolia and U. praelonga in now. No one's tried longifolia in peat...or it just doesn't do well like that?

    I also wonder if it would work in a terrarium...but I think some species like livida or whatnot would be better for that kind of experiment.

    Edit: For some reason kept reading longifolia out of reniformis...so I've now got all three of them.

    You can grow longifolia in just about anything really and it is generally robust enough that it will not drop totally if it is unhappy giving you a chance to move it to some other media. It would do fine in a terrarium either free planted or in a pot.

    Sorry, neglected to mention, real fine sand mixed with peat is what I have all my Utrics in, U.longifolia being no exception, tho I would like to try a more open mix and see if it goes any quicker, I do believe it would

    And as proven by U.subulata, some of the easy ones will grow in darn near ANYTHING

    Interesting. I may try one start in the terrarium potted and see what happens, or if I'm feeling less lucky just put them in the sphagnum they came in with peat sand around them and see if they grow into it.

    Anyone have any idea where longifolia originates from?(location).
