    My new Aldrovanda

    Hello, I received my aldrovanda today from Clint for the auction (and some replacement for a trade we had... (side note: do NOT ship aldrovanda too wet... It doesn't like it. UNLESS it comes in water. (if that makes any sense! haha)) He wanted pictures of them in the tank... But I don't know if there will still be sunlight when I make it over to the green house, and who knows when I'll get over there next. So here they are as of now.

    Sorry for the dirty aldrovanda-tank water I sent hehe.
    You did a good job with the pics. It's hard to get good pics of the traps.

    man! this is one of my plants on a wish list that I hope I will get the opportunity to grow sometime in my future. I love to have a "aquatic VFT".

    OH Clint... I wasn't going for a trap closeup... Just general condition, then the closer one for fun... Wanna see close? Here is an empty trap, and one with food in there Better? ;-)

    Andrew is a professional photographer. Nice Aldrovanda. I should get a tank for them and some aquatic Utricularia, all it'd need is maybe some warm water, some bottom media and... yeah, doesn't sound too hard!

    Well, I spread my aldrovanda into 3 different tanks... I put most of them in one tank that seemed to be doing the best with the few aldrovandas I got a week or so prior... So anyway- They all seem to be doing good!! (I didn't take a picture of the one in my dad's fish tank, but it is doing well also) so here is a picture of the plants in each of the 3 tanks

    adnedarn. Are you sure your aldrovanda will succeed (well, long term) in a fish aquarium? Low light levels, constant algae problems, nutrients from the fish food, etc.
