Utricularia graminifolia, available here as a tissue cultured plant, is typically used as a foreground plant in aquascaping. It is a “carnivorous plant”, one of the bladderworts. Reaches heights of anywhere from 1 to 4 inches, depending on cultural conditions. It can be grown both terrestrially and aquatically.
About Tissue Cultured Plants
In-vitro or tissue culture methodologies are used to create genetic clones of countless forms of plant life from orchids to hostas and yes, more recently aquarium plants. Tissue cultures are free of algae and pest, grown in a lab from clean, micro propagated plant material. Tissue cultures are “matured” when offered for sale, and should be used upon arrival if possible…wait too long and they’ll decline. While aquarium and aquascaping applications are the main target of tissue culture offerings, many of the plants available via tissue culture can also be used in emersed or even paludarium and vivarium-type conditions.
To use your tissue culture, simply rinse all the culture media from the plants. You can divide up the culture into many smaller pieces, or in the case of some types, individual small plants are readily apparent and can be utilized individually.
