Utricularia graminifolia in Taiwan part 2

Recommended Posts

This is a follow-up to this thread I made about 8 years ago. Unfortunately, the pics in that thread are down, but it is the same site. Basically, this is a site in Xizhi, New Taipei City where Utricularia graminifolia was introduced. It grows with Drosera spatulata. Apparently in the past there was also Utricularia smithiana, tricolor, and livida at the site but I've never seen them. It is a roadside with pipes that has water continuously flowing down. The location is fairly rural and is on a mountainside, although the skyscrapers of Taipei are visible in the distance. Since my last visit, the colony has spread and there are two now, with patches of Utricularia in between. The main colony is about 10 meters or so across and the second one is maybe 3 meters across. I managed to catch a cluster of plants in flower and the blooms looked quite beautiful.
