Sorry, but I don't think those flowers are coming from the Genlisea. It looks like they are coming from the Utricularia subulata surrounding the plant.

Can you just tell mother nature my greenhouse is private, and next time she have to find another way!
Maiden, I am so sorry for your sudden disappointment. It's good to see that the Genlisea is at least alive, and seems to be doing OK.
That photo sequence made me LAUGH, though. I needed that. Yes, alas, it's the Utric. I don't understand, though, how I can't seem to keep U. subulata alive. I've had it sent, deliberately and not, many times, and each time it disappears. Grrr! I actually want that species is the bog and other places.
If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
Lil Stinkpot lol
Yeah i think my genlisea doing well, look healthy to me, but im looking for the flowers. Maybe this summer !
Thanks for the reply anyway hehe

I hate you right now.....
You and your stupid awesome genlisea....
Seriously though, that looks really good! My hats off to you. I have not had a chance to grow Genlisea yet but I have heard they can be fickle (at least some). My complements to the chef er... gardener!
Is any of that subulata up for trade
I love your plant. Have you ever considered growing your plant in a manner in which the traps would be visible. There is information on this in the Savage Garden.
