    U. aurea - Some pics to share

    The bladders for this species is quite big and the leaves are nice looking...compared to U. gibba at least.

    The bladders.


    I was watching this snail very closely. Kinda worried it'll get sucked in.


    But basically, it went round the circumference of the bladder. Btw, Snail Junior is slightly larger than a fullstop. I could only see a black dot moving and it was with the camera that I could tell it was a baby snail!


    This bladder sucked in air!

    That's a great picture of the air bubble that got sucked in! Do you grow them inside or out?

    Michael, I chucked them into the 1 foot by half a foot tray which holds my VFTs and D. binata pots. They go into the space between the pots. Not every strand has bladders though. I picked this strand out specifically for photos.

    Xvart, the bladder must have sucked in the air when I removed the plant from the tray for the photos. Hehe.
