    Terrestrial Utricularia with largest traps

    Hi All,

    I was just wondering if anyone knows which terrestrial utricularia have the largest traps?
    I have found some info about U. arnhemica having huge traps. Are there species out there with bigger bladders?

    I think arhemica is as big as they come...u. humboldtii has large traps as well...

    Yeap I've seen this thread ad decided to ask. Those traps remind me of Flood from Halo series.

    What do you feed to those monsters and how do you feed them? Don't they need to be in water to suck the prey in?

    PS:

    My question was asked on that thread. I was so amazed bu the look of them I did not read the whole thing

    if your bladderwort had traps that huge they could eat feeder guppies without any problems. they would have to be submerged first, of course :P
