When i was watering my sarracenia in the greenhouse today, I saw this plant in two different sarracenia pots. The plant must have been introduced with some plants at some point. Some who can id it?IMG_5841.JPGIMG_5842.JPGIMG_5843.JPG

Thank you. Is there any problem with them besides they are spreading a lot? And can they withstand frost? My greenhouse gets frost every winter

It's in most people's collections whether they want it or not. It has an unpleasant habit of producing seed pods without even flowering. I can always find pods but only ever an odd flower here and there.

Hi Richard, Can't stop nature doing its thing . But they look nice enough lol. I've seen little things like them coming out of mine, been plucking them out lol. Can then do anything to the soil?

Sorry for not replying sooner.  Been busy as you can imagine.  The only thing they can be damaging to is other Utricularia colonies.  They can quickly pollute them.

It's entirely up to you.  They'll probably come back anyway.  They're like cockroaches.
