Traps are often held on the tips of some of the grass like leaves. Both of these types of traps are suspended in the water. The largest traps of all are attached to the underground stolons and trap preys which live in this substrate. The bladder-trap is unique to the Utricularia, giving them their nickname of Bladderwort.
