    Here is a photo of some arial bladders that formed on the "leaves" of Utricularia cornuta. This is a good example of how undifferentiated the above ground "leaves" and underground "stolons" really are. These bladders have never been below the substrate.

    Has it aborted or just stopped growing? I find that U cornuta will grow inflorescences in spurts.

    Do those above ground bladders ever catch anything?

    Utricularia bladders use water to suck in their prey, so, nope.
