I was just curious if anybody puts some of the easier to grow aquatic bladderworts in the water they keep in their carnivorous plant trays. I've read on line that people do that especially during the summer when they can feed on mosquito larvae. Has anyone had success at that and what species of bladderwort would you recommend?

I was just wondering about that very thing! I was reading about Waterwheels, which apparently like peaty, acidic water with mosquito larvae and no algae. Sounds exactly like what's in my water trays. I might just need to connect a deeper pool to the trays, and somehow have the water (and larvae) flow through them. Hmmm food for thought. Maybe next year.
