This is an aquatic carnivorous plant that you rarely see for sale, and we're happy to be able to offer it to our customers! The Waterwheel Plant (Aldrovanda vesiculosa) most closely resembles the Bladderwort Plant (Utricularia) in its superficial appearance and cultivation. However, it resembles the Venus Flytrap in its trapping mechanisms! Tiny clam-shaped traps are found on the ends of the 'leaves', and trap small aquatic organisms. Really neat! Our plants are growing in an outdoor water feature with other non-carnivorous aquatic plants (lizard-tail is the one we use), and plenty of sediment and leaf litter. This item code is for one plant, will be shipped wrapped in wet paper towels, and will need to be placed in a water feature with some natural sediment and other plants in it (no treated 'waterfall' water for these guys!) for optimum growth.
