Hi,

for sure Utricularia menziesii is one of the most interesting and nicest Utricularia. We have actually been too late for their flowering season, but we had the great luck to find some flowering plants in the Stirling Range

Hi all,

thanks for the nice comments! Finding this plant in flower was surely one of the many highlights of our tour, especially as we almost failed to find them on that mountain ;)

I loved this species, but I was never bright enough to germinate it.
Do you know who is the pollinator?

Hi Carlos,

i have no idea what pollinates this species! Just from the flower alone i would expect a bigger bug or something like this, but i might be totally wrong ;)
