    Utricularia ID

    I honestly do not even know if I have an utricularia but hey that's the whole point of a id thread. I took two photos from the plant and the flower stalk/seedpods. I do not know the flower color since I never seen it bloom.

    Looks like the cleistogamous form of U.subulata.

    I have gotten all my seeds from ICPS and I haven't seen any super tiny black seeds. I broke a seed pod to see how Utricularia seeds look like and I definitely don't recall saying that. I bought my peat from home depot and for years I haven't had any random Utricularia sprouting till recently.

    I'm one of the very few that manages to kill U. subulata. I keep reintroducing it, it keeps vanishing.

    I wouldn't rule anything out but I still think trades are the most likely vector. Many that have U. subulata &/or bisquamata don't know it. Some that have one or both mistakenly believe that it stays in it's intended pot (LOL). Even those that know they have it may not warn a trade partner of it's existence.
    All the best,

    I have an ever expanding colony of U. bisquamata that originally came with some Satracenia from Peter D'Amato's nursery. I wish I'd pulled them all out the moment the plants arrived. What a pest this is!
