    Question Very Red B-52

    I just received an order from Peter D'Amato and found my deluxe potted B-52 to be very red. Is this normal?

    Looks great. Just a word of advice though, blot out the name of the vendor you got it from.


    Also, I can see several bladderworts in there too. I'm not sure what color they are yet, but in six months you'll find out.

    Oh, so that's what those sprouts are. I did notice them right away and was curious. Now I know.

    It's Ultricularia bisquamata. I can safely say this from experience.

    Ah, thanks Nimbulan. How do I go about caring for them? Same as the VFT? Are they okay to grow alongside the VFT?

    It's generally regarded as a pest. It won't hurt your VFT, but it -will- invade any adjacent pots. The only time it seems to be actually harmful is in seedling pots, and is a nuisance when you're trying to grow other bladderworts (intentionally).

    Utricularia bisquamata is a notorious weed. It spreads like wildfire and will probably survive conditions that would kill the VFT. It will seed itself everywhere so be careful unless you want it in every pot in your collection.
