High light environments allowed for the trade off between photosynthetic leaves and prey capturing traps that are photosynthetically inefficient.
They may have developed from bifurcated pitchers that later specialized on ground-dwelling prey; or, perhaps, the prey-guiding protrusions of bladder traps became more substantial than the net-like funnel found in most aquatic bladderworts.
