    I read Tamlin's post about how D. spathulata flower stalks stretch with insufficient light, and I was wondering if that is possible for genlisea too, because the flower stalk is pretty long...

    Its the same flower stalk from a while ago. Its still growing, so its not dead, but I'm just wondering if it WILL flower or not...

    How long is it by now? My only Genlisea, G. violaceae, did produce a 15cm long flower stalk before the first flower appeared.

    That's normal for G. hispidula. The G. violacea 'giant' can get to nearly 1.5 feet!

    These scapes can get quite long. My hispidula is just flowering now. Genlisea have really pretty flowers: my violacaea is everblooming.

    grrr. your violacae is blooming and mine is not. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    so my question is, what conditions are yours in. Is there anything one can do to trigger flowering? I have had mine for over a year and never a flower. I've given away dozens of babies from leaf cuttings but have gotten never a flower stalk. Mine is growing in wet peat. Previously I had it growing in waterlogged peat and water. High humidity, approximetaly 8 in. from two full spectrum fluorescent light tubes.

    thanks.

    Do you keep the water level constant, or do you allow it to vary?
