Feed Me!


Swollen Bladderwort, Utricularia inflata - a floating, carnivorous plant common in the swamps and ponds of my area.
This plant "eats" tiny arthropods that swim too close to the bladders on the submerged leaves.

I haven't seen this one. I wonder if it grows in our bogs and swamps. I'll have to take a look through some books tomorrow. The only carnivorous plant I've seen is the pitcher plant blooming here.
