Utricularia livida is a terrestrial bladderwort native to Mexico and Africa. It prefers warm temperate to tropical climates and flowers continuously in ideal conditions. While it doesn’t typically produce seed, it is an easy grower and spreads quickly through the soil making it a good window sill or terrarium plant. U. livida was originally described in 1837 by Ernst Heinrich Friedrich Meyer. See additional information below.
