    The plant pictured by Yann is aomething we have growing in these parts, but I don't see any in the apartment complex bog. The cattails are a good 6' tall.

    Does Aldrovanda shrink as the cooler weather sets in?

    I visited our local USDA and spoke with a plant dude. Then we took a short field trip. Unfortunately, we couldn't find any sedge. He did say that "sedges have edges". I took a little car trip and found this stand at the side of the road:






    Is this what I need?

    Hey Jim,

    No those are not Carex, they look like grasses, probably some sort of wool grass (Scirpus). If you feel the stem you'll notice they don't have edges.
    The mix of colors on those trees in the background look fantastic btw.
