    U. bisquamata I beleive from the look of the flowers, and it's flowering again (no surprise there).

    Guess I'll grab the forceps and yank that thing out.

    Edit: What ever it was, it didn't put up much of a fight. It left a root thread that I was able to pull up easily - not extensive at all - no sign of bladders

    Hmmmmm, looks like a couple of different Utricularia in that pot and it might be U. tricolor, the shape is about right. The other certainly looks like U. subulata.

    Whoops! Looks like the recent photos were deleted off photobucket. How'd that happen? I reloaded them.
