The species Utricularia reniformis A.St.Hil. is occasionally grown by specialists, who appreciate its large leaves and spectacular flowers. I have observed two different forms of this plant in our collection, and hoped to learn more about it in the literature. Merl (1915) noted there were different sized types of this plant, however Taylor (1989) considered the two types merely to be extremes of species variation. As such, Taylor did not consider them separate species (nor did he accept subspecific taxa in the genus)
