A new addition to the PetFlyTrap product line! Bladderworts (Utricularia) are carnivorous plants that produce bladder-shaped traps that suck in small prey items. There are both aquatic and terrestrial species. Generally speaking, aquatic species such as this one can be grown in something as simple as a bucket of pond water, glass bowl, or a pond feature, while terrestrial bladderworts can be especially rewarding in a terrarium with other plants! This particular species (Utricularia gibba) is an aquatic species native to all continents (including the U.S.) except Antarctica, and grows as a free-floating or semi-affixed plant that has long, thin branches (stolons) that are literally COVERED with tiny, pinhead-sized traps that are 'vacuum-sealed'. When small aquatic organisms (including MOSQUITO LARVAE) hit small trigger hairs near the trap opening, the trapdoor snaps open, the trap sucks in the unsuspecting 'guest', and the trapdoor snaps shut...all about as fast as you blink your eyes! What a neat way to get rid of some mosquitoes...and it's NATIVE too! Utricularia gibba also produces beautiful canary-yellow flowers in the warmer months that can form quite a display in good conditions. Price is for a starter 'plug' in a zippered baggie.
