    Sweet! It's great to see an underappreciated carnivore doing good.

    Do they stay on your grow rack all during their growing season?

    How long where they kept in the fridge? Did you change the water at all or do anything else special?
    Yeah, they are widespread in their distribution. If there's any way to trace the source, that would be great in determining how to handle them. I had them in the fridge for 4 months. I also checked on the ones that were in a plastic tub of water, in a cooler, in the unheated garage. They were also fine. I did nothing to or for them. They do grow in dirty water, so sterile conditions aren't necessary.

    I've had them in a 10 gallon fishtank, along with U. gibba, outside, on the porch. I can get them through all 4 seasons. My next goal is to get them to flower.

    I think it's buried in the muck.
