    hey i have a u livida, it dosen't seem so exciting to me, i dont see any traps and they grow like weed, they just look like small green spikes on the soil, and the flowers are small brown balls...
    i was thinking of submerging it to see the traps? maybe it will be more exciting? will it survive?

    1 more thing how do i collect the seeds? the fruits are puny, when do i pluck the seed pods out?

    thanks
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    If this plant is producing seeds I doubt whether it is Utricularia livida

    That isn't U. livida; it's probably U. subulata. The traps are buried in the soil, and there aren't many ways, if any, to make this species exciting. If you really want the seeds, collect the pods whey they turn brown & dry and crush them with your fingers over a pot or some paper or something.

    hmmm, yes thats the one, U subulata the traps are underground...
    then how do they catch food underground? earthworms?

    Their prey is much smaller than earthworms, think microscopic!
