    Utricularia bisquamata in South Africa

    Hi,

    today i would like to show you pictures of the onliest species of Utricularia we found in southafrica - Utricularia bisquamata.

    We have found this species in the range between the Gifberg and the Silvermine Nature Reserve on almost every place we visited. The plants are very different in size, form and colour. Some of them are so small, that it is very hard to take good pictures!

    What were the largest bisquam flowers you saw? I love the look of them, but I want a larger clone!

    In cultivation Utricularia 'Betty's Bay' has the largest flowers and is most desirable.

    Hi,

    yes, that's right! The large flowered form we found on Gifberg seems to be even a bit larger!
