With the hot TX summer coming and all my other projects in testing or completed its time to start this one.
The alpha version will likely contain U. quelchii.
My main goals are as follows.
Lowest maintenance time possible.
Allow enough room for the species to flower within the setup.
Ease of harvesting for giveaways/NASC auctions/whatnot.
Here is the first draft of what I'm thinking of using existing materials I have. Standard rimless aquarium, I will be constructing a false bottom for. The Utric will grow on top of the false bottom in a mix of live sphagnum, driftwood and tree fern. There will be 2-4" of standing water in the bottom to allow for constant humidity. A pump will be in that standing water connected to a PVC structure that will frame the inside of the tank to allow for automated "misting". Think low volume spray bar.

I'm also open to a flood/drain system with a shorter false bottom if there is concern that the 8-10" useable height is not enough for quelchii.
