Hi all,
A couple of years ago I found a Utricularia in some new ponds which had been constructed as mitigation for some maintenance work on ponds containing Great Crested Newts on our campus. I don't know where it originally came from, but there was some planting done.

I haven't seen it since in the "New Newt" pond, but at the time I transferred bit to the "Old Newt" pond, where it has done very well. If it flowers I should be able to find which species of "Greater Bladderwort" complex it is.

cheers Darrel

Exciting!... Could it be U.stellaris? It looks very much like it... :) No idea if there are reports of it growing in Europe as an exotic. I've had it a few times in the past and it really looks very similar. But I never got it very long and never got any flowers.
