Hi all! I wanted to grow utricularia reniformis for a long time but i don't know what substrate to use, should can I use 4 parts peat and 1 part perlite? Is it able to thrive in zone 9 conditions? how wet is too wet? thanks!:D

I grow mine in living Sphagnum standing in 50mm of water all summer in a greenhouse in the UK. It survives the winter, keeping it just damp, with no further protection in the greenhouse and we are a similar hardiness zone, if a little cooler.

It is native to Brazil at all sorts of altitudes, so  I would immagine in Italy you shouldn't have  too many problems.

 

Cheers

Steve

+1 with Steve.

Exactly the same conditions for me except I live in South of France
