      • Great for carnivorous plant bogs, terrestrial bladderworts can also be repotted on its own into our PROmix for bladderworts or shredded, moist long fiber sphagnum moss
      • In optimal conditions, the plant plug will spread to fill the container over the next couple of months
      • Grow terrestrial bladderworts in semi-shade or sheltered location with very bright light
      • Using the tray method, keep your plant standing in a tray with 0.5-1cm water (Rainwater, distilled- or reverse osmosis water preferred)
      • Top watering is fine too, keep your plant moist at all times - never let the soil dry completely
      • Utricularia Livida usually flowers during the warmer months of spring and summer - Enjoy them, the flowering process is not as energy depleting such as in the case of venus flytraps and sundews, thus bladderworts can definitely be left to flower
