I have always considered Utricularia campbelliana as the ultimate bladderwort from a beauty standpoint. The deep red color of the flowers is unique, and they are among the largest in the genus. Due to the slow growth rate and rarity of this species, it took me years to find someone willing to part with a portion of their plant.
