My largest out of 3 available turions. I keep mine in dormancy where they are frozen in Michigan winters almost all year. I have to ask for $3 shipping, sorry. Winner will be picked in 1 week, next Saturday.
Last year I took a trip to the northern portion of Michigan and the southern portion of Upper Peninsula. On the trip I encountered various carnivorous plants and orchids.
Emmet County (Day 1):
The first site was quite unique compared to similar sites I have been to. All of these plants...
Well it's that time of year again! We're bringing in water lotus and tropical water lilies, and as per usual they're carrying in U. macrorhiza. $6 to cover shipping, a US address and a history of participation on the TF forum are the only requirements. You will get a nice handful. Winner will be...
A few days ago I was looking at some Utricularia australis I acquired in a recent trade and found that it was sprouting a new plantlet from a long stolon:
Here you can see the length of the stolons in relation to the plant:
I thought this was interesting because I have also seen this on...
I have been asked for my growlist many times and I am really bad about keeping one so here goes (As of this posting this list is incomplete and only includes my Aldrovanda, Genliseas and Utricularias).
My Interests in the Carnivorous plant world
A recently set up outdoor tank has yielded seven or more no-id aquatic utric plants. A recent thus far non-successful attempt to sprout some other aquatic seeds has made me wonder if I had some tiny seed hitch-hikers. Of something else. Or who knows? Maybe netting out prey from...

I got this plant in a trade today, but the person I got it from doesn't know what it is. I'm tempted to say vulgaris, because it looks like what I have grown before as vulgaris. Also, does anyone know whether Meadowview's vulgaris is really vulgaris, or is it macrorhiza? The picture they have of...
Paul has generously decided to give me Sarr seedlings. Coincidentally, it's my birthday. So, Thanks Paul!
Anyway, the terms of the agreement were that I would giveaway a starter clump of U. gibba, shipping paid by me, for shipment Monday. I may have some extra U. macrorhiza too...
I have a tank full of Utricularia geminiscapa and I would like to trade some of it for other plants. It grows faster than Utricularia gibba for me and parts of it that break off from the stem readily turn into new plants. It also produces a lot of bladders, unlike my macrorhiza and inflata. I...

I'm Howard. I've been getting back into carnivorous plants after a 3 year gap. I have a Nepenthes (not sure about the species) that I've had for almost 10 years.
Here's a list of plants I have acquired in the last few months:
After receiving some Utricularia Macrorhiza and Utricularia Gibba a few months ago, I found two surprises in my water tray. Two Eastern Newts, one dead, one completely alive sitting in my Carnivorous Plant Water Tray(where the utrics reside). This is the weird thing, and I would love someone to...
I'm looking for some of the following to fill in a really neat pot I got.
(CA specific forms, if possible)
P. macroceras var. macroceras
D. x obovata
The Utrics can go around the pot, since apparently they're all aquatic.
I'm looking specifically for this species, but if you have any other offer, let me know. I'm accepting seeds, plants, cuttings, anything that will keep growing.
Why these species? they are simply native CP's of north carolina, and just thought about getting them, perhaps my next...
heres my new above ground pond i just did. last year it was basically a fetid pool full of peat/mud sludge and hornworts and utricularia macrorhiza. my goldfish just died so i took apart his tank and put it all together outside. the plants are anubias, saggitaria subulata, hornworts and some...
hey everybody, i just ordered a u. macrorhiza and cant really find much detailed info about this one. im thinking of putting it in my el natural aquarium or if i find out thats not suitable i have a mini pond out back. any thoughts or suggestions would be a great help!
I will trade U. Gibba for the following utrics:
And i will also trade for Daphnia to feed it
My Utrics, when you look from above, fill up the top of a 3.5 fl oz cup. I know that gibba is the most common, so ill settle for a little less than my...
