Utricularia Gibba

Portion Size:

You will receive a 5x5cm flat mat.

Description: 

Utricularia gibba, also know as dwarf bladderwort, is a unique carnivorous plant that feeds on small aquatic organisms like mosquito larvae. It is found in many warmer regions of the earth in bogs and on the edges of ponds. This bladderwort floats in stringy mats underwater, but it can also settle on other aquatic plants.

U. gibba has almost stunted-looking leaflets that grow sparsely on the threadlike, thin stems. These leaves carry the bladder traps that catch its prey which consists of tiny aquatic organisms; however they are completely harmless to fish fry or shrimplets and the U. gibba strings provide them with some great cover, similar to moss and other floaters.

Facts:

Utricularia gibba is a floating plant that does not have roots but instead obtains nutrients through its bladder traps.
It produces small yellow flowers that add a pop of color to the water surface.
The plant is highly efficient at controlling populations of small invertebrates and microorganisms in the aquarium.


Tips:
Provide moderate to high lighting to support healthy growth and flower development.
Avoid strong water currents that can dislodge the floating plant.
Supplement with nutrient-rich water or small live organisms to ensure the plant's carnivorous needs are met.
