I just received 4 new utricularia.. I read the care sheet on the forum. But do all of these like a very wet condition? The reason I ask is that the U.calycifida looked better yesterday before I potted it. Maybe it just needs time to adjust..?

U pubescens, U fulva, U.longifolia, and
U calycifida.
Thanks for any and all advice as always :D

My experience with U. calycifida is that the existing leaves don't survive repotting. Mine wilted really badly after I got it but popped back up in no time and started flowering almost immediately. That said I think you potted yours a bit shallow, there's a lot of white showing.

I should add I used a humidity dome while the plant was recovering though I don't know if that's necessary. It grows just fine under normal household humidity otherwise.
