Dear Fernando,

both, Aldrovanda and Utricularia are sometimes available here in Europe;
e.g. at the last CP-meeting in Switzerland; we will have another German
meeting in 2 weeks; if you want, I can have a look for you for this
species; but it may be a little bit difficult, to send this
species save to Brazil.
Utricularia humboldtii is available from Ruedi Fuerst in Switzerland; I
will look for his address.

BTW, please allow me one question:

Have you ever seen Utricularia nelumbifolia in habitat?

All the best
