I have set up a "tank" with Utricularia pubescens some month ago in 60/40 blond peat/sand, lightning TerraLed 50W (actually 7 hours/day).
They have grown and developped well, but since some weeks several plants looks dried/brown. I am not sure what this is. Maybe normal, or not ...
Do you have any idea what could be the cause? I thought it could be a lightning issue but if I'm not wrong Utricularia pubescens like high luminosity or maybe watering ... to be honest I don't so I am wainting some tips :D

Thank you in advance!
P.S: I am not a native English speaker, sorry.

No need to worry about your english, it's fine. This is a multinational forum, so we welcome everybody.

That looks like old growth dying. Maybe increase your light to 12 hours, but apart from that, the plant looks healthy and there looks to be new growth.
