    Shameless rehash of what was in the sundew forum:
    After years of stagnation in the collection growth department, I am finally deciding to expand my CP collection. Yes the years of my plants persisting in acceptable condition and in some cases growing large (atleast, until recently- but that is another story) So new plants this spring. Despite my never having had my D. capensis actually flower in years I have grown them, I am happy with them.

    I wish to have a some easy terrestrial species, so....
    Im starting slow. But I cant decide which to get so im starting this thread. Could you please tell me your experienced and opinions about the two following plants:
    Utricularia sandersonii
    U. livida


    Thank you!
    that makes no logic

    U. livida is a crazy beast. Mine was in a huge pot, and it flowered like crazy, and also spread pretty crazzily too. The flowers tended to last around a month each.

    Here I'm holding it, my fingers are holding it weird 'cause I was trying not to spazz while my picture was being taken.

    They are too easy so I killed them. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it. Actually they aren't dead yet, but they are waiting for any excuse to die on me.

    Both are very easy. If you're looking for some good starters, you found them.

    i have both. but i have the blue form of sandersonii not the regular form. i have yet to see my livida flower. but my sandersonii was a knock out!! the blooms are more...."full" than the normal form. i only got 13 flowers. if you look at anyone else they have a count into the 30s

    I say "Go Aquatic" I grow U. Gibba & U. Inflata in two seperate glass cookie-jars with a thin layer of peat at the bottom and a layer of sand over that to hold it down.
    Aquatic Bladderworts is where it's at! I don't get the terrestrial buisiness...

    I would also add bisquamata, warburgii, and dichotoma - and they will also flower easily.
