The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Massachusetts and Vermont in 2006

Return to the Trip Overview

Negotiating the undulating, wobbly sedge field with care, we found holes in the mat where Utricularia grew in abundance. This being a canoe trip with inherent uncertainties about what I should risk bringing, I did not have much camera gear with me, so did not have ways to contend with the contrasty light. You will have to accept that in these photographs.

Looking closely at the photograph, you can see that the leaves are palmately divided, and that bladders are not visible. The bladders are buried in the mud. This identified the plant as Utricularia intermedia.

Here is another view of the plants, just not quite as close.
