    Hmmmm, hummmmmm, hooooom


    It might just be Utricularia graminifolia. I could tell more from an overall view of the plant and a shot of the leaves. The color in the photo is more pink than I am used to seeing, U. graminifolia is usually more lavender colored.

    Of course, the only way I can be sure is to actually grow a bit of it, Tony. For some reason I am cursed with an inability to maintain this in my collection, and my last attempt leaves me with a stolon or 2 trying to endure. You are probably asking if this is yet another of my nefarious attempts at getting a free plant, but I refuse to answer.

    I've already promised you a plant of this (U. graminifolia) for when the weather warms up... Let me know when I can send!

    Thanks;> I took the pics using my digital camera held onto the eyepiece of the microscope.

    Thanks Tamlin for the help. I can take more pics and if you want to see the plant by all means..
    Unfortunately I can not really compare to U. graminifolia because my pieces seem to be dwindlying in size and it just refuses to grow much at all and probably won't be around any longer. This plant on the other hand has grown very well under the same conditions.

    I have looked at all of BobZ's links to both species. Taylors Monograph indicates they are very similar with only some minor differences in the key.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Yes, withering away to nothing describes U. graminifolia well, at least in my collection. There is another possibility, but the name eludes me right now. I have seen another flower that I though looked a lot like U. graminifolia. I'll do some browsing and see if I can find it again.
