    Stolon growth in aquatic Utricularia

    A few days ago I was looking at some Utricularia australis I acquired in a recent trade and found that it was sprouting a new plantlet from a long stolon: Here you can see the length of the stolons in relation to the plant: I thought this was interesting because I have also seen this on...

    In Situ Expeditions

    I am in the process of creating itineraries for different trips to see carnivorous plants in the wild here in the US. I'm designing the trips based on the wants of others as I likely will be leading groups of people to see these plants. They won't be able to collect seed, cuttings, or any plant...

    Utricularia geminiscapa for trade

    I have a tank full of Utricularia geminiscapa and I would like to trade some of it for other plants. It grows faster than Utricularia gibba for me and parts of it that break off from the stem readily turn into new plants. It also produces a lot of bladders, unlike my macrorhiza and inflata. I...

    My Utricularia tank

    I just wanted to share some photos of my Utricularia tank. The substrate is Flora-max mixed with a little peat moss at the bottom with RO water and no CO2 injection, so I don't grow Aldrovanda in here, although since it doesn't really have algae problems I'm considering adding CO2 and putting...

    Growing Utricularia purpurea

    Has anyone had luck growing this plant? I've heard how difficult it is to keep alive. I used to have some but they just got smaller and smaller and faded away. When I received them, they hadn't broken up into pieces like they are said to do, but after several weeks in my tank they just all died...

    Conserving a wild Sphagnum Bog

    While trekking through through the wetlands surrounding the pond near my house I found large amounts of sphagnum moss. The area had very sandy soil, constant water, and lots of sun. It is a beautiful area, except it has been neglected greatly. There is trash everywhere, and people used the area...
