    It looks to prefer to be emerged rather than submerged.

    I've got some that grows in a jar with no medium. It has formed its own mat. With that I just have a few millimetres of water to the jar.

    I've learned over the years of growing UG that it loves moving water, and being right on the waterline. Little emersed, little submerged seems perfect for it.

    Now I have no idea how to make it flower.

    Wonderful photos Mobile, UG can really be an attractive plant.

    I was able to get a better photo of the grow out tank earlier this week.

    A few people might find this interesting so I'll post up some photos. I "harvested" a bit today for shipping, had to pull out about 1/2" of the mud with it but some quick rinsing and the UG was mostly mud free and the mud was returned to the setup.

    Harvested bit.

    I have a mat of U. graminifolia just like that is a jar with just enough water to keep the 'roots' moist. It grows and flowers with no substrate.

    @ Mobile: That's interesting how it seems to stay away from the edges of the bowl. Is there a light directly above it?
