Along Cow Creek Rd. in Goethe State Forest are areas of flowing water that is filled with beautiful spectacles of yellow. The swollen bladderwort, a Florida native plant, is another species in the bladderwort family as well as an aquatic carnivorous plant.
Great video about the Swollen Bladderwort, it’s such a neat plant!
What really would be neat if people would contain their trash! There’s nothing like coming across the beauty of nature and seeing how humans diminish that beauty.
This is one of my favorite little plants, the Pink Sundew. This is a carnivorous plant, and a pretty one at that.
Found in wet pineland areas or bogs… nice semi-wet muddy areas, they can spread or be in clusters. This tiny little plant is only around 1-2 inches in diameter and can easily be overlooked and stepped on!
Those shiny dewdrops on the tips of the plant is nectar, very sticky nectar. This is to lure insects to the plant. They do not fold like the venus fly traps, instead the insects fluids are dissolved by the plant.
