Then something about my older plants. My venus flytraps and Sarracenia psittacina are doing well and they are even making some flowerstalks.

Then about my Utricularia longifolia. It came to me as a happy looking clump but it suffered when I potted it to mix of peat and sand.

It survived in this mix for few months and then I potted it to small glass jar using mix of living sphagnum moss and orchid soil. And at the moment this little plant looks like this
