    Loverly!

    I like how the moss & leaves hides the pot making it appear more like a stump with the plants growing on it instead of in it. How long has it been growing in this pot to get colonized in this density?

    8, no big secrets mate.... Its in a net pot with live sphag, and sits in about an inch of water but the net pot keeps it from staying too wet IMHO

    While U. longifolia will probably enjoy the pot, that may not necessarily be a good thing. Utrics, in general, like to spread themselves around as much as possible but as B. Rice notes in his U. tridentata description (in section Foliosa w/ longifolia):
    Like the others in this group of species, this is invasive in carnivorous plant terraria or greenhouses, so be careful about where you put it.
    I have one tank which I have cleaned 'all' of the longifolia from twice, only to have it reappear months later. Mine now enjoy a windowsill where they are somewhat less likely to invade their neighbor's pots....(& still flowering after ~2.5 months!!)
    All the best,

    Funny enough, mine didn't flower until I put it in a glass pot similar to that. Then again, it's invaded 3 terrariums, which I now put under my neps (well away from them) to provide additional humidity). There they get the slightest amount of sun and guess what... they're flowering too - where no one can see them unless you bend down to look inside. Your display is nothing short of stunning though!

    It won't be near anything but U.nelumbifolia, so the two can battle it out
