    An aquarioum is tottaly unnesaserry, you can use it, but your plant wont flower. To flower, you have to get a container, put some peat in the bottom,put the plant in, then let the sun in the summer evaporate all the water, and you plant should flower. However, keep the peat wet.
    A good container to use is a plastic tub of some kind.

    the only thing i agree with in starman's post is that you dont need an aquarium for aquatics and that plastic tubs make good containers. however, the rest isn't true. you can grow aquatic plants in aquarium under lights, they can and will flower. i think putting some peat in the bottom is a good idea no matter how you grow them. don't let "all the water" evaporate, unless you want dead utrics.

    it's usually best to research before you give people advice, starman. alot of the stuff you post is innacurate.

    Aquatic utrics are some of the easiest cp's to grow. If you have a pond, just dump them in there. If not, you'll want a large container or aquarium. That works best if you dump in a water hyacinth or something to host waterfleas and algae-eating snails.

    ChronoKiento, if you want an aquatic utric just pm me.

    Oh, and if you use a large container, just start by letting the water sit in the sun for a while so the chlorine breaks down. After that you can just top it off with tap water.

    Read this thread:

    http://www.cpukforum.com/forum....start=0

    Scroll down untill you find U.gibba.

    Is that peat I see in the bottom of the container?
    Is the water evaporated?
    Are those flowers I see when the water is evaporated in Summer?
    So please dont tell me Im wrong, I know what Im talking about.
    PM that person if you still dont believe me.
