    U. calycifida

    This is my one and only utricularia (species and specimen) that I have successfully germinated from seed. The flower stalk is now about 10 cm in length and the first flower will open pretty soon!


    Whole plant


    Flower stalk


    Oldest flower bud


    Oldest flower bud - side profile


    Second oldest flower bud - upper calyx


    Leaves - note the absence of reddish veins as opposed to the typical form as this is the white flower variety

    The first flower dropped before I got the chance to take a picture of this second flower. It appears that the flower opens for one or two days only.


    Second flower - front


    Second flower - side


    Second flower - top (diagonal)


    Second flower - top


    Purely for taxonomic interest - upper calyx of first flower after senescence
