    I have grown them in a large undrained pot of pure LFS kept filled with water. It spread well that way. I did that after reading somewhere about someone finding P. primuliflora growing in a mat floating on a creek or pond or some body of water.

    Yep, I did exactly what PlantAKiss did. It grew like mad. I put it somewhere a little drier later (I think because someone on the forum said something about rot ) and it just declined.

    Hum thats very interesting. Currently my plant isn't doing anything but who knows. Perhaps if I put in in LFS it would do better. I only have this one little one so I don't want to kill it.

    As a next question to those that have been reading this thread, how big of a container do I need? Right now it looks like its just a plantlet. I am thinking that in the morning I'm going to take a yogurt cup fill it wil LFS and go from there. Would there be any reason to grow it anything larger for now?

    My primulifloras are constantly reproducing. I pick some of the plantlets out and go around plopping them in different Sarracenia pots and tubs. They pretty much take off anywhere I put them. Full sun, half shade, wet, drier...whatever. The only times I occasionally have problems is when repotting the larger mother plants.

    I put mine in a large pot to encourage it to spread...which it did.
