Aldrovanda vesiculosa japan and hungary
Posted 11 April 2007 - 00:58 AM
I have my aldrovanda japan in a small tank with utric gibba.
I have the gibba some time know in the same tank with a little bit of peat and destiled water. It's propagating quiet well.
Reacently I added to the same tank the aldrovanda japan? Is there any problem in that, or it's ok to have both plants together?
Now I'm waiting for a vesiculosa from hungary, and probably will join it with the other 2.
Do I need to feed the aldrovanda, or does it do weel only with water and peat?
what kind of temperature ranges this to species need?
they need full sun right?

Aldrovanda is temperate as far as I can tell.
Not all forms. The form from Hungary definitely is but I'm not too sure about the Japanese form. I have a feeling it is as well.

The Japanese Aldrovanda would be warm temperate I guess.

I agree with Alexander, the form from Hungary is temperate and the Japanese one warm temperate, whilst the forms from Sydney (Australia) and Botswana are somewhat cold tropical and the rest of the Australian forms warm tropical
So as result I wouldn't mind growing the Japanese and the Hungarian form together, although you might not be able to tell one from the other after a while 8depending on whether it's the reddish form from Hungary or not).

the rest of the Australian forms warm tropical
The climate of Esperance in south western WA, which is home to a red form of Aldrovanda, is not what would be considered warm tropical.
The word cold-tropical to me is an oxymoron. I think sub-tropical is a better term. The climate of Sydney should not be described as either- Mediterranean is a closer fit.
You could say that I'm just nitpicking I suppose. :?

Totally forgot about the Esperance form
But on the other hand there are many locations we all don't know anyways and which were not listed (such as the locations in Poland, Switzerland, Russia etc...).
And Im not sure if subtropical is right or not... but you definetely get "cold" tropical areas such as highland areas

The most northerly location in Russia is at 61 degrees north at the south-eastern side of Lake Ladoga in a wetlandarea.
