    Pond scum

    Three different forms of Aldrovanda - they are relatively new to me and I am trying different ways to keep them growing nicely






    U. striata - should be grown as an affixed sub-aquatic but is currently just floating in water




    Seriously, I never thought Utrics can be interestingly until I noticed that the growing tips were turning black!


    Upon closer look...

    They look so nice and clean! I've got Aldrovanda & U. gibba sharing a 10 gallon fishtank, on the porch, along with token bog plants and bog muck:

    Excellent pics Cindy. I love the red hued Utric!

    Jim, Aldrovanda in America wow! I've never known of anyone who had it. Is it easy or Does it need a dormancy?

    Actually, there are hobbyists here who grow them... Doug Darnowski, Rich Sivertson, and Steve Druggins come to mind. There are probably more. I am brand new to Aldrovanda, so I'm not the best to ask. Elgecko also had Aldrovanda a few years ago.

    The utric arrived like this.


    About 2 weeks later.


    Side "shoots" producing red bladders.

    Jimscott,

    I do have some Aldrovanda with utrics and they seem to like each other. Could you describe your set-up please? I grow my pond scum in plastic takeaway containers! At the moment...until I find a place big enough with bright light.

    It's just an ordinary 10 gallon fishtank. I scooped up the sediment and plopped it in there. I also uprooted a "cattail" plants and some other prevalent bog weed and tossed in there. I use water from the bog. That's it.
