    Oh yeah, my genlisea have never died back before in a terrarium. Maybe some of the rarer species do. I know some consider them annuals.

    Sorry, I did not see that on the utric and aldro forum. I am not entirely sure who to listen to here, but just so you know, I did find a website that sells them. (They've also got carnivorous bromilieds,(how do you spell that?) aldrovandas, cephs, and sunpitchers, but I've noticed that they don't restock on plants as fast as flytrapshop.com does)

    I'll echo Rattler and Jeff's recommendations and add in that I have been growing Genlisea of some species or other for 10 years or so... FWIW.

    My genlisea (violacea x lobata - I think) was in anaerobic soil for a while before it started to deteriorate. After repotting, however, the main rosette was fine.

    In general they are really easy, main problem will be finding one. If you do find one, the nursery may not label the species. The old nursery I bought mine from doesn't sell them anymore.

    For soil, any relatively wet and acidic medium will do. (Peat + sand, Peat + perlite, peat, whatever). Some people recommend waterlogging, some a moist but not too wet medium, and some a cycle of wet to moist (keep wet for a couple of months, then let dry a little bit, then keep wet again), so it is your choice which one to trust.

    Well I can get it very humid, heated and waterlogged; I know where to find them where they know the spiecies. I'm going to look at some prices. If I get any, I'll post some pics.
    thanx for the help guys!
