    This is the setup I have on the porch. The Aldrovandas are sharing a 10 gallon tank with U. gibba, a cattail, and some other bog plant. The bog is like 100' away from our apartment complex. It's been set up like this for ~5 months. Oddly enough, I am experiencing zero algae.

    I would guess they are cattails Typha.
    How tall are they?

    It's a bit hard to see in the picture Jim but those look like the typical Typha latifolia. The most common one is actually a hybrid, here's what you ought to be looking for though:




    Feel the stem of the plant if you can't find a flowering structure. If it feels like a triangle you can almost be sure it's a sedge, there's a few exceptions but nothing to worry about for this instance.

    Aloha Yann,

    that looks more like a Cyperus sp. Based on flowers. I got some pics of a native Carex from Makawao Forest reserve.

    Hey Mach!

    Nice pics, it's great to see the diversity within a Family based on location.
    I pulled a random picture off the web and was fairly certain that it represented [I]Carex[I] simply because of the leaves in 3 separate direction.
    For what Jim is wanting though whether he finds Carex or Juncus it'll look similar to all of the above pictures.
    Do the Carex in Hawaii experience a dormancy Mach?

    these guys hard to say in 4000 feet elevation. under story of rain forest. Might be behaving that way with the drought now.

    I do see my sarrs making scales over the growing tips of rhizomes so suspect things are starting to turn, just no frost so no pitcher die back. its cool ...
