    Other Utrics I Can Grow In Semi Aquatic Conditions?

    So about 6 months I got some Utrics from Tony, and while they were in excellent condition and grew well for a while, I've had TONS of trouble keeping mold off the media and have lost most of them. However, I recently received some U. dichtoma from flytraplady, and thanks to here advice set them up in the vase seen below. After only a week they have already spread quite a bit, and looks like it will be quite a success. I was wondering what other Utrics I might be able to set up similarly, since my terrestrials haven't been responding to my conditions at all.
    As always, thanks for the advice,
    Kyle

    Just to bump and give a quick update. After only about 2 weeks, they seem to have overtaken the surface and have a nice flower stalk up!
    So any suggestions other Utrics I could grow like this? Just a layer of peat then filled to the top with LFS!

    U. grammifolia (or is it graminifolia?)

    Graminifolia. They can grow either full submerged (aquatic) or semi-emerged (emergent). If grown semi-emerged then they might flower, as mine does. Here's a picture of mine from a couple of years back:

    A lot of the so-called "terrestrial" plants can grow like this, such as sandersonii, livida, warburgii, those are the ones I've had experience with.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
