The mucus of Utricularia flaccida


Recommended Posts

Does this mucous serve a function for the plant, or is this currently unknown?  Do any other Utricularia spp. produce such mucous?


Is it just nectar to attract pollinators?  If it is nectar - it looks like a lot!


Either way, looks beautiful, nice pics :).
