U. humboldtii is a semi-aquatic. It grows aquatically in the liquid trapped
by certain Brochiniae (Taylor mentions three), and it also grows as
terrestrial. I would dispute the easyness of U. vulgaris since with
U. humboldtii you don't have to worry about algae. But I guess each has
his/her own opinion and methods of growing.
