For those of you growing terrestrial utrics, how do you keep moss (it's not sphag) from over running the pots? I'm worried about it crowding out/smothering the utrics but afraid physan might harm the utrics.

I never really have that much of a problem. When they get big enough to fill the pot I split them up to propagate and the utrics grow faster than the moss. Dichotoma for attention.Image

I'd love to know what conditions you keep your Utricularia in. I've got a few that haven't done much in the past year or so.

I have had these in the garage recently. Instead of being in my normal indoor range of about 72°- 76°f and 40% humidity, they've been at 80°- 90°f and 60%-90% humidity ( because Ky in July ). Sandersonii and dichotoma seem to be doing quite well. The longer leaf blades of bisquamata do not appear to appreciate the heat. The aquatics have had no change.
