    What can I use as associate plants for androvanda? I have in the tan live sphagnum and can add miniture payprus. Should I also get a water lily or something? What about a water poppy?

    Perhaps duckweed? The Savage Garden seems to think highly of it. You could try planting some bog plants in containers and put them in there. My landscaping book says, for a bright spot, arrowhead arum, blue and yellow flag, cardinal flower, cattails, dwarf umbrella palm, imperial taro, lotus, pickerelweed, water canna, water lily, water hawthorn, and water plantain. For oxygenators, you can use anacharis, cabomba, hair grass, hygrophilla, parrot's feather, sagittaria, and vallisneria. Since you can't use water hyacinth for a water cleaner, you might try to find some freshwater mussels to put in. The aldrovanda might even be able to trap the larvae if they have a free-floating stage. I dunno about water poppy, but it's probably worth a try if you have space. What kind of planting are you thinking about?

    PS - It's kinda vauge as to what types of plants those are, so I'm not certain they're entirely submersible. Shouldn't be hard to find out though.

    Well I have been researching androvanda. I asked Medowview and Think I will go with their suggestions. They said no to duckweed. I am not sure why but will not use it. I was trying to create a naturalistic setting. Not really but just to make my androvanda happy.

    I use Pistia stratiotes (Water Lettuce), a very fast growing and nutrient consuming plant. It is similiar to Eichhornia crassipes (Water Hyacinth), a plant recommended by Lubomír Adamec and Kamil Pásek.
