  • Utricularia Livida is an easy to grow terrestrial bladderwort native to South Africa, and regions in Mexico
  • The variant of U. Livida produces semi rounded leaves with beautiful white with purple flowers approximately 0.5 cm in size
  • Bladderworts uses tiny traps underneath the soil to catch and digest microscopic organisms for nutrition
  • Even though the carnivorous magic happens below the soil level, utricularia are usually grown for the tiny orchid-like flowers

      • Using the tray method, keep your plant standing in a tray with 0.5-1cm water (Rainwater, distilled- or reverse osmosis water preferred)
      • Top watering is fine too, keep your plant moist at all times - never let the soil dry completely
      • Utricularia Livida usually flowers during the warmer months of spring and summer - Enjoy them, the flowering process is not as energy depleting such as in the case of venus flytraps and sundews, thus bladderworts can definitely be left to flower
