 HI  Arvind
 
    I  have  tried  this  plant  in  late  2006  or  early  2007......Got  it  from  tropica.  The  plant  requires  low  light  initially  and  then  normal  light  once  it  takes  off.  This  is  a  difficult  plant  to  keep,  I  wasn’t  successful  with  it.  I  think  the  plant  also  has  a  high  requirement  of  iron.  I  would  recomend  you  first  grow  this  plant  alone  in  the  aquarium  and  later  add  the  other  plants.
 
    If  you  are  really  want  to  try  it  then  I  would  recomend  you  get  in  touch  with  Adip  to  source  it  for  you.  I  will  also  try  and  find  someone  who  has  this  plant  or  someone  who  can  get  it  for  you.
 
 All  Tthe  Best!

 I  remember  one  of  Madan's  old  posts  mentioning  this.  May  be  he  can  shed  some  light  on  the  subject  once  he  gets  back
 

 
                                                 
Madan  wrote  (View  Post):                
Bladderworts.  That's  the  US  name.  The  first  Utricularia  sp.  I  collected  was  lost  in  a  densely  planted  tank.  U  graminifolia  grew  with  great  difficulty.  Let's  see  how  this  one  does.

 I  am  growing  UG  emersed  right  now  and  have  had  it  in  my  tanks  before.  IMO  It  requires  a  lot  of  light  and  good  CO2  when  growing  submerged  to  form  the  thick  foreground  carpet.  It  also  takes  a  quiet  long  time  to  take  off  once  it  is  planted.  This  is  true  for  both  submerged  and  emersed  growth.  I  had  used  Amazonia  II  for  both  submerged  and  emersed  .  This  seems  to  help  it  .  I  tried  growing  it  in  a  mixture  of  Sand  and  Amazonia  II  emersed  before  and  it  took  a  very  long  time  to  take  off.
