flowered for the first time, so here it is...... This is a hybrid.
A zygomorphic flower has two lips: upper and lower. The lower lip is much larger and is 3-lobed. The upper lip is 2-lobed.
A flower is supported by a slender pedicel branching out of the tall peduncle (main flower stem).
A long spur extends on the back. The flower length including the spur is about 9 mm.
Genlisea are very similar to those of Utricularia, both of
which belong to the family Lentibulariaceae.
A pollinator enters the flower through the gap between the upper and lower lips.
