    Is this species established in your pot or is it material that has recently been collected and put into the pot?

    I've heard that this species can be very difficult to maintain in cultivation and was wondering how you managed to keep it looking so healthy.

    I'm thinking the plant would appreciate a very high water level to grow well. How do you grow yours?

    Sean.

    All Utricularia have traps that are underground. These traps are tiny and can only catch really small insects. Here is a picture to help you out.
