    Genlisea Hispidula

    I don't believe I've seen many Genlisea posts on Terraforums, so here's mine.





    Yes, there's a flower.



    And a U. quelchii, just for fun (yes, it's not much... yet ) :



    I sowed some Genlisea seed of some earlier seed pods, but they're supposed hard to germinate.

    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks for sharing! That's certainly something you don't get to see everyday. I had a pot of G. Hispidula once upon a time. You're certainly doing something right!

    Thanks guys! All you need is one leaf - that's how I started mine.

    Crystal - Maybe we should trade one of these days...

    G. hispidula flower stalks get insanely long. It's almost unbelievable. I think I had one that was about 18 inches before I traded it away, wrapped around in a circle throughout some Drosera.

    I'm sure we can work something out one of these days .

    That flower is pretty insane. I didn't know they could get quite that tall.

    It actually wasn't vertical. It started growing horizontally then just keep wrapping and looping through everything, popping out a new flower every couple of inches.
