My one and only utric that I have is an Utricularia Stygia that I have in a glass jar outside on my little grow table. It gets full sun for all day until about 5 PM and at first it was growing really fast which was what I had heard from other people that grew this utric. I had suspected it to be AT LEAST 6 inches by now but it seems to have stopped in its' tracks at probably less than one inch. It's still green but it looks like it might have algae on it. There are little bugs and such stuck to it as well. It went through a semi-brief cold period because mother nature won't make up her mind for this summer!
I was just wondering what I could do to get it growing again. Should I put it in the dark for a while to get rid of the algae that is on it. I really can't tell if there really is algae on it because it's the same color, I just noticed that I can't see as much detail of the, for lack of a better word, leaves. What I'm thinking of doing is putting it in the dark for a week or two and then changing the water, I thought I'd get a second opinion about this first, concidering this is my first aquatic utric.
