WHAT ARE ALDROVANDA
Aldrovanda vesciculosa is an aquatic plant that floats just below the water surface. They are also called the Water Wheel Plant. As the name suggest the leaves and petiole grows around the stems so it looks like a water wheel. They are rootless and their stems are only about 4-6 inches long. The traps are very similar in appearance to that of its cousin, the Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) that look like a clam. However, the traps of a Water Wheel Plant have long pointy bristles around its traps.
