Hi, did some minor rescaping and now have a few mats of UG i want to get rid of

Selling: 2"x2" mats of healthy UG $14 each. I have about 3 portions available

non cc paypal only.

Shipping: $6 via priority.
Will ship on Tuesday if payment recieved.

UG is very healthy and has no algae (that i've ever noticed) on it. Be aware your local weather conditions. I do not have heat packs. Also, UG is a very fragile plant. I have it established in 3 tanks and in each case it took a month or three for it to fully establish and start to grow.

I'll post pictures later today.

btw UG = Utricularia graminifoli. Awesome carpet plant, grows like a lawn, very thick, very lush.

UG came from this tank before i "mowed" the lawn. It's looking really ratty in the pic below because i just cut it and thinned it out


actual UG that is for sale.

How is it without CO2? And isn't UG the carnivorous plant?

I would have bought it fast.. but I spent all my christmas money :S.

UG probably needs CO2 to do well. It is carnivorous but only microscopic/palctonic sized stuff to the best of my knowledge. I keep my minami shrimp with UG and they keep booming in population.

UG don't need CO2 to grow, I have been doing that with out CO2 since 2004... just would not grow as fast. But you got to have good lights, I use 2 32w T8 6500k light bulbs on a 4ft tank. You also need to cut them down to keep them in shapes, cut them like you triming hair to prevent them growing too thick.

Glad your plants are alright. Have always been worried about shipping UG, since every time i got them through the mail they were in real bad shape.
