Description

Utricularia calycifida is native to South America. The utricularia calycifida is a terrestrial bladderwort which produces large leaves with purplish veins. This plant likes terrariums and window sills. Fully grown the leaves of utricularia calycifida can reach 5cm in length. It thrives in sphagnum moss, prefers a shady spot, likes high humidity, does not like to get cold (keep above 12°C) and needs to stand in a deep saucer with rainwater

All bladderworts have traps under the soil or in water, and are the fastest traps on the planet. Utricularia can  capture prey in less than one millisecond.
