Hi all, I have the following Utrics which are doing ok but I’m not sure I’m treating them correctly.

Could you advise on how much water or flooding they require, they’re currently south facing catching natural light and a bit of additional grow light.

I'm Uk midlands based if that has any baring thanks.

 

U Biquamata ‘Betty’s Bay’  in original pot looks to be peat

U Sandersonii large form, in original pot again looks to be peat.

U Hermanus as with the other 2 original pot and looks to be peat.

U Longifolia ‘Forgetiana’ in LFS moss

Any help much appreciated

I treat all utricularia except the Orchinoides complex in the same way.

50% peat and 50% perlite. I fill up to approx 2 cm of water in the tray when the level is lower than 5 mm. The pot is full with bladders after 6 months and need to be divided.  But I grow in terrarium under only artificial light. I think bigger portion of peat and higher water level would be more appropriate when growing in living room conditions
