So I recently bought an aquatic bladderwort, realizing too late that I should have gotten a terrestrial one because I don't have a pond or terrarium. How can I grow an aquatic bladderwort (Utricularia gibba) on a windowsill? My plan right now is to put it in a mason jar with a substrate of small pebbles and some peat moss, filled with distilled water, and hopefully add some pond/river water. Will this give it a good chance at surviving?

Some info about the environment: On the windowsill, it will hopefully get a couple hours of direct sunlight throughout the day. The day temperature is in the 70s but may drop into the 60s at night. If necessary I'm willing to invest in a growth light.

Yes you can but one thing is really important it needs dormancy as munch as I know and also theres algae because algae can easily outgrow your bladder word and thats the most difficult thing.
