Utricularia graminifolia is of the bladderwort family and can make a nice foreground plant for the experienced hobbyists, C02 injection is of importance. Soft water is also important, (Low KH/4 or less & GH/5 or less) Lighting needs to be within the 2.5~3wpg range. CO2 injection is a necessity, a mist of C02 is recommended. Fertilization should be diligent, NPK, TE and Fe. A very stunning plant when grown to its glory in the aquarium. Propagation is easy for a healthy lawn/carpet, bi-monthly or monthly trimming will help in thickening and the spread of this beauty. The bio-filtration also plays an important role in the overall success of growing this plant. filter needs to be large enough to produce good flow and house adequate media. It is a member of the Lentibulariaceae specie.

Tried it once in a high tech setup, with tons of co2 and ferts, and it just died off. Hope I can try it again sometime. Not easy to come by.
