Someone else with inflata :D I got a cutting off ebay and threw it in with one of my submerged epiphytes. It just sat there and then next day (not really) it was double the size. They're neat to watch. I set it up so I can see the traps of both species. How's yours doing?

I bought a 6" cutting and put it in a pot of water and it grew pretty well. So much that I tore off a couple of chunks and threw them in the watering trays for some of my deeper pots. Then I did some research and decide to try and set up an environment for them, with some peat at the bottom of a pail of distilled. Well, the plants that I took care of turned white. The were alive but white. The plants I chucked in the trays went bonkers and grew. So now all of them are in a pail of regular water and have turned green. They haven't formed hiberniculum yet so I am a little worried. I already had a layer of ice form on the pot. I really want to see them flower. Where I grew up there was a pond where they grew wild and it was loaded with flowers in the spring.

I had an utricularia vulgaris cutting I received with the inflata that turned white as well when I transferred it into my pot. It just looked dead. I honestly was debating throwing out but kept telling myself "Maybe there's a live piece on there I can't see" Sure enough the plant exploded with some new green growth after about a week or so after that. Interesting though. My epiphytes actually are grown in a way that fits the aquatic needs. I used an oblong shaped tupperware container where I had the bottom layer peat/sand with sphagnum moss sitting on top where the epiphyte grows. I left half the container open with water to see the traps of the humboldtii when it grew out. I threw the aquatic species in there to do its thing.

Interesting, they form hibernaculum? I'll admit I didn't research them that well. I was actually curious if it could keep the water clean for my humboldtii/nelumbifolia as far as algae goes. Do you keep yours in the full sun? Mine is indoors but I'd like to do a pot outside to let it get some size. I'll admit I have no idea how I plan to work with this plant when it gets too large. The other reason I left it there in the pots is so I manage it well :lol: Perhaps a giveaway or ebay in the future :/

That's amazing man, growing these does have me look at nature more and I have an appreciation for it in a different way. Few months ago I went out with my friend to hike a site about a half hour from here where they had pingicuila. S. minor and d. capillaris growing wild. It was awesome finding my first one in nature. Thinking back now, I believe I've encountered utricularia as well as a kid but always just thought of it as some kind of "random growth" I want to go back during a different season to catch them flowering.

I used the wrong term. It is not hiberniculum but turions. Regardless, the form a bud and sink to the bottom until spring. I've had mine in full sun all summer long and the did fine. Algae is a problem. When it gets too bad, I pull the plant out, rinse it in clean water and give it a fresh batch.

My first experience with a CP in the wild was a drosera intermedia in a bog in upstate New York. I had no idea what it was other than it had sticky tentacles. Someone told me what it was and I was hooked. That was 38ish year ago and this hobby is as fascinating as ever.
