Opinion on housing these plants

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I recently picked up bladderwort and sundews from my local Dobbies Garden Centre, housing them below in a glass tank, with a 7k led designed for aquatic plants. 

I've got about an inch of RO water, with the plants in individual tubs, with morning mistings. 

Is this a suitable set up for these plants? I'm wondering whether the lack of humidity will affect them, or if there is something different I can do to help them. 

I'm keeping a close eye for insects being caught, with bloodworm available in case not. 

If this is a suitable set up, id like to add some more species that will do well, without the need for dormancy, and low relative humidity. Open to suggestions! 

Many thanks

Hi! Really nice plants... it is a good sistemation, but I’d prefer to put outside those plants, they are very vigorous (if I see good, d. capensis alba, d. aliciae and utricularia maybe livida ... don’t put them directly under the direct sunlight of the hotter hours of the day;-)

if You don’t have a very sunny windowswill, you can put those plants in this sistemation this winter;-)
