    There's also some U. bisquamata with your admirabilis. Bottom left of the plant in the picture

    For weedy Utrics I like U. livida, but really, why choose? I think they're all really adorable.

    I'd assume so, but U. bisquamata doesn't seem to be particularly malignant. It only becomes a weed by seed and it doesn't usually choke out anything; stolons are sparse.
    I recall that the CPN had an article in June 2007 about the containment of Utricularia on account of their tendency to invade other pots by running through the drainage holes. Apparently, Utrics can become a serious hazard if not monitored (I'm thinking U. longifolia here).
