    Hi,
    I got my Utricularia gibba a few months ago, kindly given to me by a very freindly forum member. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    However, I ma having some problems.
    Whenever I top uop the water, I cant miss the plant.
    And when the water hits the plant, some stems snap off it.
    How can I prevent the stems form getting snapped off?
    Thank you for any help,

    I wouldn't worry about the stems snapping off because they will grow into new plants. Given time you will have more gibba than you know what to do.

    Your could try watering through your fingers of some other device to break up the water flow into smaller streams instead of one big one.

    How about siphoning through a small flexable tube so you can direct the flow?

    Gotta go.

    The problem is, the stems snap off......then they go white and start to rot, they arnt usually big enouygh to make new plants.
