    Smile Anybody grow gibba?

    Hello, do any of you grow U. gibba. I'm planning on buying some on ebay. I heard they are easy to take care of, but I can't really find any info on how to grow them. Can you grow it in a glass vase filled with ro water with light? Thanks!

    Whenever I see it in the field it is in a peat/sand soil that floods and then dries out on a regular basis. I don't have any to offer you unfortunately. Good Luck in your search!

    I have mine in an aquarium. It grows very quickly and needs constant thinning.

    Very hard to kill. Go for it.

    Did you already buy some on fleabay (cause I grow it)? U. gibba is very "easy" to grow, not very fussy at all.

    Yeah mine is really a weed. I just grow it in a little glass jar with a bit of peat on the bottom of the water (to make the water more acidic). I've only used RO water. But it grows super fast. I'm yet to get mine to flower but I'm sure it wouldn't be hard. I sort of neglect my U. gibba
