As we all know mosses and other invaders take over a utric pot pretty fast and I have been wondering if anyone has ever grown any utrics purely in Shultz APS (Aquatic Plant Soil) or similar non organic material?
I recently bought an expensive version of APS by Pond Care/Aquarium Pharmaceuticals called "Aquatic Planting Medium" since all my local APS sources have quit carrying it after doing so for almost 10 years. But the landscape nursery carries this overpriced version in huge bags. Anyway, I only needed a little bit and was trying to think of a use for the rest of it and was thinking a semi-hydro way of growing utrics purely in this should allow dense root growth and little to no pest moss growth and should make divisions very easy.
Anyway, before I kill some helpless Utric has anyone tried this before with good or bad or indifferent results? U. sandersonii is going to be the first victim cos it's culture is 99% moss.
