    Utricularia bisquamata

    This is the species Utricularia bisquamata, it should have the distinction of the epithet "The Thug". Although looking like a little cutie and I mean tiny, it is only that if it's kept confined to its own pot by regular dead heading before any seed is produced. Just don't turn your back for too long or it will be in every pot that has the slightest amount of sphagnum or peat in it.

    Looking great! I'm trying to revive my 'Betty's Bay' right now after it languishing for a while and me finally discovering that it does not like waterlogged soil.

    I need to transfer a few plugs from my Utricularia into the Darlingtonia trays. They do seem to be much happier in there.

    Would you say that this is true for all bisquamata? I have a small pot that hasn't done much of anything in a while. I'll have to try it a bit dryer.

    I couldn't say, the only other utric I've kept in such a small pot is U. sandersonii and it's perfectly happy colonizing the water tray.

    I don't think a comment is necessary
