So some U.Bisquamata have been hitchhiking alongside my droseras! As of now I want to have them spread all over my terrarium!! I do want to know however if the fungus gnat larvae would eat them before they can grow? And also , could these little bisquamatas maybe even eat some larvae themselves? I mean are there bladders large enough? And finally how will I be able to let them spread as quickly as possible? ( Yes I know they can take over an entire collection, I WANT them to take over in a way! Haha so no warnings needed)
Thanks in advance!

I have several “weedy” Utricularias in my pots and there are plenty of fungus gnats; they certainly haven’t stopped the Utrics from spreading! But if you’re concerned, it could be a good excuse to grow some more Pings to keep them under control. ;-) Image

Not really. Keep the soil moist. Give it good light. That’s all I’m doing and it’s growing rampantly!!

By the way there are two Utrics in that photo, bisquamata and sandersonii. I think sandersonii is the more rampant of the two, but the bisquamata is blooming as well. Image
