    It's aquatic, so you could probably just put it in a bowl of distilled/RO water. I'm not really sure of how this plant is.

    Hey, you're from Oregon!!!!! I go to Albany every weekend!

    Welcome to the forums.

    I own this plant too, I just haven't had time to put it on my growlist. I use pond water... You might want to hold off on putting it in its permanent growing area until it stops being cold/warm weather that we're experiencing.

    I use a trash can, one of the white plastic ones. It is full of pond water with some dirt at the bottom. The dirt is peat/sand/clay/dead leaves/LFS/regular soil.

    Maybe we could meet sometime.

    ok. what sort of light does it need? or what works for you? i just got it in the mail right after i posted that. i took some water from my fish tank and put it in a bowl. now its sitting with my other plants in the window w direct sun on it. did you get yours from cooks nursery? i did. its waaay smaller than i thought it would be i was quite surprised since i read in my savage garden book that its the size of a walnut

    p.s. hey jeff! nice to meet you. i looked at your growlist! thats ALOT of plants! i just repotted my plants. just a few pitcher plants and vft. i got 12 vft bulbs about four years ago and now i have almost 80!

    I keep my aquatic utrics outside... so lots of light. There's almost no way the larger species will do well indoors.

    No, I mine showed up mysteriously my back yard... lol. With location data... I got it from a guy.

    Yeah, usually nurseries skimp on size of plants they send out.

    You should make a growlist. I'd like to see what you have. We should chat; here's my email:

    cool. i just found a big 40 gallon storage tub laying around that was already half full of rainwater! i put a handful of peat moss in and some gunk from the pond to start growing little critters. seems to be mainly cyclops from past observations. so far the plant doing fine in the window. im pretty sure its grown a bit. i should post a picture....

    It's nice to see you posted a growlist. You should put your tub outside when it begins to warm up; I'd say around the end of April.

    Rainwater is good. Pond water is better.
