Utricularia graminifolia makes a lovely, light green carpet or cushion for the foreground of your aquascape. This variety was discovered at an altitude of 6560 feet in swift-flowing water and immersed in the splash zone of small streams in Sri Lanka. In tanks this plant requires medium light levels to gradually create a thick but very short carpet. Utricularia is unusual in that it is a carnivorous plant and makes special bladder traps to capture passing microorganisms. Fish and shrimp are totally safe, however.
In Vitro plants are submersed in 100 percent humidity. Many aquarium plantlets in the market are emersed, which means the leaves are grown above the water. These plants die back after they are placed inside an aquarium, and they regrow with the new leaves looking different than they did when they were purchased. With In Vitro submersed plants, you get constant, uninterrupted growth.
