    Where to Put an Aquatic Utric?

    I've been thinking about getting an aquatic utric. Should I just put it in a pot full of distilled water and under my 3 26-watt cool white fluorescent lightbulbs? What do they need, ie. what are the requirements for growing them? I want to get Utricularia gibba

    Actually aquatic Utricularia are much more tolerant of hard water than the rest of the genus, as far as I've been told. I've grown some successfully in containers with unfiltered water, which around here runs from 50-100ppm.
