    Utricularia blanchetii is a Brazillian terrestrial Utricularia with a limited genographic distribution (central Bahia). It is super easy to grow, and floriferous. I just have to add water to the tray once every 1-2 weeks. It seems to be ok with fairly low light (phototynthetic photon flux density, PPFD, of about 150 ┬Ámol/m^2/s). Here is the link to my Orchid Borealis blog post with a bit more info.

    That is very interesting. How tall does it get, I could add it to my other carnivorous plants in my bog, it would be an interesting addition.

    The plants are below the moss, but the inflorescence is about 15-20cm tall. What do you grow in your bog garden?

    Impressive! Thanks for posting this one Naoki. How long do the flowers usually last?

    Kipper, I'm not sure for each individual flower (maybe a week?), but it seems to be almost always in bloom.
