Does anyone have a list of terrestrial bladderworts with similar care to U. sandersonii? The sort where you put them in some thoroughly moistened media, flood them now and then, and they thrive with minimal to no fuss.

U bisquamata (a weed for most folks, though I seem to have an incredible knack for killing it off)
U longifolia
Just ordered a U bisquamata "Betty's bay" last week. They have bigger flowers and are not as weedy.

Also, livida is really easy and a VERY prolific bloomer too.

I would add blanchetii to the list since it flowers really easily.
U calcydifa blooms in cycles rather than constantly, but I think the leaves are more attractive and it can put out a lot of flowers at a time once established.

Thank you all for the suggestions. Somehow I didn't get any alerts on this.

U. longifolia prefers a looser substrate, doesn't it, like LFS? And the others are more of the "any substrate with peat is fine" sort?
