    International Carnivorous Plant Society - How I grow Aldrovanda in my planted aquariums

    I just saw this on the ICPS forum. I thought it would be something you all would find interesting.

    I am new to CP's and what I understand about plants in the Aldrovanda genus is that are normally considered rather difficult to grow, needing "special" water conditions, usually created with peat and such to maintain an acidic pH. I find it very interesting how the high-light and CO2 aquatic plant tank grows this guys Aldrovanda sp. so well.

    Anyway, thought this might find some interest here! :)

    Is this a plant that is hard to grow? Never heard of it personally but I would've though virtually all floaters would grow like weeds.

    It kept getting tangled and loves high light and CO2.
    It grows fast but is smaller than you think.
    A small tank with soft water, good ferts, CO2, light, not much movement and you can grow the snickers out of it.

    Sells well too, but lousy for any scaping or typical tanks since it just gets caught on filters etc.
