Utricularia, vegetative parts

Recommended Posts

Just a simple comparison of a root-like stem, a leaf-like stem, and a true but transformed leaf (trap) in Utricularia aureomaculata.

Thank you!

I used a simple Canon EOS 700D with 60 mm macro lens. I took the photos rather quickly, so I used the flash incorporated in the camera for taking freehand photos, instead of using the tripod. Nothing special.

The substrate is  the common CP substrate, about 50% peat and 50% quartz sand, with a bit more sand on the top.

Thanks!

And no, they have stalked glands, or glanduliferous trichomes, as you prefer :-)
