    Has anyone tried growing Aldrovanda by mixing in any odd ingredients to the water?

    I received an Aldrovanda plant in an old Gatorade container that was cut in half and filled with pond water. I started looking into the water chemistry for Aldrovanda and wondered if a small dose of Gatorade would be of any use to the plant.

    I've always been tempted to try that aquarium micronutrient stuff on my utrics. It has a tiny bit of fertilizer, but is mostly inorganic trace nutrients.

    My Aldrovanda is in a fish tank that has approximately 1.5 inches of peat on the bottom. It is growing like crazy.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.
