    Allen Lowrie sells seeds of U. arnhenica but Utric seed is notoriously unreliable.

    Humboldtii can be found at bestcarnivorousplants.com or Wistuba. Rumor also has it that Cook's might have some.

    How about a mosquito fish? That'll control the larvae, and you can add the plants for decor. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Ut. humboldtii does produce those big traps only occasionally, the normal ones are much smaller. I won't expect it beeing a good pest control. Of course Ut. humboldtii is a very nice species with its varying leaf shapes - so everyone in Utricularia should grow at least one.

    Hi all. Luther Burbank(noted plant breeder/geneticist) observed that when prickly pear cactus(opuntia species) were cast upon ponds, the juice from the cactus would coat the surface of the water and keep mosquito larva from hatching for up to 1 year.

    Michelle beat me to it. Feeder guppies are 10 for a dollar or so, and are smaller that other guppies. I had an Aldrovanda in my daughter's guppy tank, and the plant did great, and of course there were never mosquitos.
