    Novel ways of growing your Utrics?

    I was curious if anyone has pics of different ways they are growing their utrics, like on logs, rocks, etc?

    I am interested in doing this in some upcoming builds and will take any inspiration I can get. Already been looking at CP PF but was curious if anyone has anything not up there.

    Barry notes that U. nephrophylla is lithophytic so it may be particularly suited to an unusual application (& those white flowers are one of my faves).

    I've been pondering doing something with my U. livida since it's very free-flowering. The usual suspect for trying something different is U. sandersonii due to it's flowering & growing abilities. Best of luck - share pics!!
    All the best,

    I'm planning on trying rockwool and some other artificial medias. Haven't started yet but I'll be sure to post about it.

    A lot of utrics take well to slow moving areas in water fountains, especially if you have kind of a flat area where the water trickles over.

    I have used rockwool (and just set up a new tank using rockwool today), every Utric. I've tried with it will not grow into the rockwool it is just too dense. They will grow ontop of it or around it thou, if you cut slits or holes they will go into those areas.

    I almost bought some sponges to play with a few days ago but didn't.

    A lava rock waterfall with some U. nephrophylla in it would look really nice I would think.
