    i think ive had this plant for like 2 and a half years now. at the moment i think its entire plant mass is taking up the space of about oh maybe 3 cubic millimeters if that. i never see it grow, i never see leaves die. it is just there like its in suspended animation. at one point it was about 4 times larger and i divided it and sent a piece to BobZ a long while back but since then its don nothing other than shrink a bit. anyone actually get this to do anything?

    Mine grew slowly but well I think. It never filled the pot it was in, but the rosettes kept increasing in size and density and I flowered it. Mine did best in terrarium culture always very wet and warm, with a good night time drop of a few degrees in a peat/sand mix, and as I recall the pot was the bottom of a clear plastic cup (the taller thin type) about 3 inches off the bottom with 4 drain holes melted in it. Sat in tray water 1/2 inch and never wanted to be fussed with much. It was a wet grower. I never repotted it, following the rule that if it's growing, let it be.

    Unfortunately that piece did not survive the trip and transplant.

    I am growing mine (and all my Genlisea now) in pine bark mulch. You can get it at HD under the name Nature's Helper soil conditioner. Stange as it sounds this is the best media I have found for them and they grow like weeds in it (I have already had to repot and seperate my hybrid 3 times in less than a year!! ). The filiformis has always been a slow grower for me but it has continued on strong in theis media. It seems to like somewhat lower light conditions I find, always thriving best when it is shaded by another plants leaves or under stray sphag heads.
