    I received some Genlisea aurea seed today. Anyone else growing this species and does anyone have any tips on germination?

    I was thinking about a layer of peat/perlite with a top dressing of finely chopped sphagnum moss as the planting medium. The pots would then be placed into a plastic bag for germination.

    Thanks

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    I'm not sure whether you are talking about live or dead moss. Be careful about using live moss as the seedlings will probably be small and slow growing.

    I would recommend planting them on a regular peat/sand medium and giving them a daily misting of water. This has worked for some utrics I have grown from seed.

    The moss will be dead.
