    Best media for Genlisea?

    I ordered a Genlisea which should be arriving next week. Question: what is the best soil for Genlisea? I was planning on undrained sphagnum moss. Thoughts?

    I some in situ photos once and it seemed to be growing in a more sandy/peaty sort of soil.

    That being said, I don't actually know what the best soil would be to grow them in. I have one and I am not sure that pure LFS is what it needs. I, too, would be interested to know.
