Utricularia longifolia is an epiphytic bladderwor native to Brazil. As with all bladderworts, its carnivorous activity is below the soil surface. Little bladder-like structures along the plant's roots capture teeny-tiny soil critters, such as nematodes. Bladderworts, however, produce some of the most gorgeous flowers you'll find among carnivorous plants. Every winter, we allow the medium to dry slightly to mimic the dry season during the winter months in its native habitat in Brazil. This triggers the plant to produce beautiful orchid-like flowers.

Type of Plant: Tropical plant for windowsill growing.
Sunlight: Dappled to partial sun. Avoid harsh, hot sunlight.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts peat moss and perlite only.
Temperatures: Tolerant of cool temperatures but always protect from frost.
