You can get regular U. bisquamata pretty easily, but the Betty’s Bay cultivar is a particularly showy cultivar.

I have always grown mine sitting in a saucer of distilled water but it hasn’t flowered since I moved. I may need to dry it out a little.

Very hard to find this cultivar still. I waited a good 6+ years to find one

Most of those semi-aquatic ones grow like weeds. If you can tell, the leaves are so small you can't see them through the moss. The only way I know mine are doing well is when the flowers come out. Which is most of the time, they bloom a lot.
