    Hahahahaha, I laughed when I read that Jim, just because I've lost so many D. adelae for no apparent reason at all [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    I grew all my genlisea side by side in the same media and water tray as my utrics. Media was sand and peat. I would water them to within a 1-2 cm of the surface then water again when the tray was dry. This method worked for the common species, such as violacea and hispidula, as well as aurea, filliformis, pygmaea and others. All grew well and flowered often.

    I would, however, not recommend suddenly changing the conditions.

    really, G. filliformis grew great for you in sand and peat?!?! the lil piece you sent me will only actually grow in live LFS for me. it refused to do anything in peat and sand for 6 months. when places in live LFS i doubled its size in about a month. shows that not all conditions work for everyone.

    An update......

    The G.violacea I acquired from Dave S. a couple of months ago has produced a flower stalk. Can't wait to see it bloom!

    I found that they took a while to get established in the peat/sand mix, but once they did they were pretty much maintenance free.

    I always found that live sphagnum was always on the verge of overgrowing the plant. But it is true that live moss can work wonders on all sorts of stubborn CPs.

    Good to here that it is still alive though. Has it flowered? Not a very compelling flower, if I remember correctly.
