    Utricularia sandersonii as aquatic?

    I need to re-pot my plant and I'm thinking I would like to try to grow this plant totally submerged in my planted fish aquarium.
    Has anyone tried this and how was the outcome?

    Nope. Truthfully this species would seem to be one of the more unlikely ones to work as an aquatic since it's such a scrambler - sending out aerial stolons all over - vs just concentrating on growing in the media.

    However, since the plant is so prolific, there's also little harm in trying several plugs to see what happens - eh?

    Some aquatic plants require ample co2 to grow well submerged in a tank. U. graminifolia is such a plant. I can imagine U. sandersonii could do the same... Some aquatic plants should not be considered aquatic.
