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
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.
