    Utricularia identification

    I have been unsure about the identity of this plant since getting it. I got it as Utricularia nelumbifolia from Carnivoria but all the leaves it has produced have been reniform.



    However I don't think it is reniformis because it produces runners, which I have never seen reniformis do.



    The bladders also look different from reniformis bladders and are larger. They look somewhat like humboldtii bladders to me.



    I suspect that it is Utricularia nelumbifolia x reniformis, but after seeing the 5th and 6th posts in this thread I am not so sure.

    The largest leaf the plant has produced is still less than an inch long, so could it be possible that I have true nelumbifolia?

    It does look like an immature or stressed U. nelumbifolia. Give it a bit of time to settle, and see what it does.

    U. nelumbifolia
    Old photo of my U. nelumbifolia, at this size the leaves were reniform

    U. nelumbifolia seedlings
    Seedlings also make reniform leaves

    In the photo with the runner, it looks like you have the beginning of a peltate leaf there, too.

    Thanks for the reassuring replies! I contacted the vendor and he said he was sure it is nelumbifolia, so I guess I just need to give the plant more time.
