I've read that these two bladderworts are poential good windowsill candidates, and I want to ask some questions. First, is 2-4 hours of direct sunlight good? Which tends to have larger leaves? Grows faster/better? I guess I'm looking for some more info to solidate what I know, but I'm honestly curious since I may choose one. The windowsill room i have in mind caters to orchids and my nepenthes.

Hello there. At least 4 hours of direct sun and filtered sun for the rest of the day is good. Both make noticeable paddle-shaped leaves and are fast growers, but I like Utricularia Sandersonii better because of its bunny-shaped flowers. ^-^

Good Luck!
