Hello, I saw two other posts for Utricularia graminifolia but for a different reason, hence creating a separate thread.

I can grow UG in soil, no problem there, but I am simply not able to make it attach to wood or rocks. Now I know for a fact they grow on rocks, wood and leaf litter in the wild. I have collected it from streams and seen them grow. Its always against the flow of water and very tightly stuck to the rocks. I can grow the same UG in the substrate but not on rocks, Any idea if anyone has had success getting it to grow on rocks?

Following because I'm pretty certain I'm the other person posting and am interested to see if anyone knows. Am having some success in soil, I'm attempting a couple clumps on mesh- if I can get it to take on that it may be a solution for you as well.

UG isn't an epiphyte as far as I know. You can probably get it to grow on rocks like you can get a bonsai to root around a rock, but it's not like an anubias.

However, there are epiphytic utricularia if that's your thing.
