    U. Bisquamata

    Hey, I've got a small pot of U. Bisquamata that has just been sitting around for the past month with no real progress. There hasn't been much apparent growth on the surface. It did well initially when i first got it and continued to grow for another month or two before coming to a standstill. It stands on a windowsill that gets 5-6 hours of direct light a day. Our temperatures have been in 80- low 90's during the day and down to the 70's at night. I water mine on the tray system and our tap is pretty low in solids, below 100. Do you guys have any tips for kickstarting struggling U. bisquamata? Any ideas on how to get good growth out of it again?

    It's in a three inch pot with an inch deep water tray.

    I got it from the seller as just the standard U. bisquamata, nothing more specific than that.

    I have found U. bisquamata to strongly dislike waterlogged conditions, but that pot should be tall enough to avoid that problem. What soil mix is in the pot?

    I haven't looked around too much below the surface but I'm pretty sure that it is a peat, sand, and perlite mix.

    Did it flower? If so did you remove the spent flower stems?

    The standard U. bisquamata will flower and set seed which keeps it occupied for a while. The leaves are very small and can range much further than is apparent without a very close inspection. This is the Atilla of the Utricularia world, no pot is unreachable and all territory must be conquered.

    The cultivar 'Betty's Bay', apart from having a much larger flower does not set seed and just continues flowering until winter sets in.
