Hello all. I've had some U. Fulva for about three months now and the tip of the leaves look like they are drying out and turning brown . Should this species be in a terrarium of some sort?

U. fulva often grows submerged in an inch or two of water. At the very least it likes being frequently flooded.

Thanks. How much light should I give it?

Bladderworts are very difficult to overwater. They like to be in containers with no drainage holes, and they're about the only carnivorous plant I'd recommend for one of those little globe terrarium things.

There are some exceptions, such as some of those from the orchidioides section, and there are some terrstrials that don't like constantly sitting in lots of water.

I repotted it today in a tall cylinder vase. I put some peat at the bottom just to take up some room and then packed some chopped LFS around it.Now I can get the water over the leaves.



And how do I kill off this moss that's trying to take ove. I keep pulling it out but it keeps coming back :evil:
