    Aquatic utrics that would be able to survive year round in an outdoor pond in Zone 4/5? Preferably indigenous to North America.

    Aquatic utrics that would be able to survive in a 5 gallon fishbowl at room temperature set out on a kitchen counter top. We do have lighting fixtures underneath every upper cabinet in our kitchen so I could easily swap out some of the existing bulbs for something more appropriate.

    Check out the http://plants.usda.gov/ and look to see what is native to your state or neighboring states in your zone.

    Here in Michigan (zone 4-6) we have U. radiata, U. gibba, U. macrorhiza, U. subulata, U. geminiscapa, U. purpurea, U. cornuta, U. intermedia, U. minor and U. resupinata.

    I would try any of these.

    Seed is too hard to get. Just trade or buy plants. Make sure that if the plants ae location you acclimate them to your climate.

    Hi, Thank you very much. I ordered U. gibba online just recently so I'm ok there. I would love to have some U. inflata and U. aurea. You don't by any chance have P. vulgaris or U. resupinata do you?
