    Ceph,

    I am growing mine in (don't laugh) an old apple sauce cup. I have a 1cm layer of sand in the bottom and then milled sphag filling the rest. I grow it in my terrarium (14 hr photocycle, temp 65-80.) I add water when the level gets about halfway down. That is about all. This species tends to prefer lower light than most CPs and often succeeds in bright sunless windows as well. If you have any complications with your seeds and none germinate drop me a line and I might be able to get you a division.

    Calycifida, like most other utrics will grow in anything wet and peaty. Don't worry too much about it. I've heard that it germinates easily by seed, but it grows so fast you can probably get a division from someone quite easily.

    If anyone has tips for U. striatula though, I'd be willing to listen...
