I have an outdoor sarracenia/sundew bog and I'm going to fill all the cracks in it with bladderworts. Just curious, what are the most attractive temperate bladderworts you guys know of? Thanks in advance.

I don't believe there are any true temperate terrestrial bladderworts - all species are aquatic. There are a few species that may survive out there though. I've heard of success with U. dichotoma but it's by no means guaranteed.

Well I've had bladderworts growing like weeds in sarracenia and flytrap pots before, I assumed some were adapted to live in these conditions. Interesting point though.

The only temperate bladderwort I have any personal experience growing is U. cornuta. It has lovely yellow flowers and will defiantly grow in a bog environment.

Do you mean that all temperate species are aquatic or that all species are aquatic? Utriclicara are sold as terrestrial, epiphytic, and free floating. The free floating ones being fully aquatic.
