I got my first mud-loving utrics today that I call (lovingly) "pond scum": tricolor, praelonga, tridentata and sandersonii all growing in basically dixie cups with drainage holes.
I've had alpina and longifolia in the past which I grew like orchids/neps but I'm wondering for these types do I leave them in a tray of water and how deep should the water be? Til the leaves are almost submerged or just deep enough to keep the soil moist all the time like for dews and VFT? I do have them in water now soaking after shipping but will pull them out before I leave for work tonight just out of caution.
I'd like to repot them into something bigger or even more interesting like that pot over the glass jar setup where the traps grow down and are visible in the water jar. Are any of these the right kinda species for that sort of project? Currently it looks like they are in pure peat, I see no sand or grit mixed in is that how I should continue when I repot or should I add some aerating/drainage material?
Thanks for any input!
