    A couple months ago I got in some new Utrics, U. reniformis is growing new traps well, suspended in water. The upper portion above the waterline/medium has put out a couple of leaves, they seem to discolor and die back slowly. The traps are much happier. Someone mentioned U. longilolia, mine is flowering and also has some aerial roots from the flower spike. I have not seem that before.

    Are you growing them completely submersed, aside from the parts that grow out of the water themselves? I would love to see some pictures! I might try it with some of my U. humboldtii if it seems like it will work.

    I tried growing humboldtii as a pure aquatic, it always dies, idk how it is that they grow inside bromeliad tanks in the wild but not in captivity. not gonna give up though maybe it needs slow adjustment? I have even seen pics where the utricularia was growing inside the bromeliad without substrate just water :P

    The problem may be the climates needs, for example I have to grow reniformis as an emergent aquatic, as when I tried normal it failed, but as an emergent its doing good (I am tropical), but nelumbifolia won't grow for me, and I have tried many conditions, humboltii did well for me for a few months, but then within a few days a clump of plant just rotted from the leaves down, but the reniformis next to it was still happpy, I have had similiar issues with nepenthes, some neps I have to grow in a permanant water tray or the suffer, in perticuliar rafflesiana, ventricosa and distilatoria, yet other people in differnt climates try this and they rot for them.

    Tanukimo, I have the reniformis in a handmade netpot in a mix of lfs and sand, that is in a glass container of soft water on a windowsill. The water level varies but I usually keep it a half inch or so above the top of the netpot.
    Here is a pic of the longifolia with roots on the flower stalk. Pic not so good, taken in the dark.

    Hey nice improvised setup I really like that. It's a fun way to grow these sort of Utricularia. Way to go!
