    Hi,

    A friend gave me a cutting of a native (southeastern Texas) aquatic Utric that he grows. He collected it and thinks it is U. inflata. My question is, do I need to grow it in soft acid water or is hard alkaline water ok? It is a lovely plant. I have U. gibba (I guess) in a couple of my fish tanks and it prefers the soft acid water tanks. Thanks.

    Bobby

    Soft acid water for sure [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Grow it like gibba except always keep the water deepish (that is assuming you grow gibba as a sub-affixed.)

    Hi,

    My U. inflata cutting is putting up a bloom spike!!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img] . I think the flowers will be yellow. it seems to be pigging out on small daphnia I raise for my fish. All its traps are bright orange now -- the color of the daphnia. Yippee.

    I been trying to culture daphnia and brine shrimp, I was wondering if you could help me on it. Its hard to feed them or something, they just always end up dying before anything else happens.
