    $13 bucks plus shipping? Holy crap. I'm in the wrong business.

    I grow mine similar to Tamlin with a few exceptions/differences. For my hispidula, violacea 'giant,' sp. 'Itacambrian Beauty,' ABG unknown and lobata I grow in LFS in 3" water lily pots. For my pallida, pygmaea, repens and filiformis I use a 2:1 sandeat mix top dressed with milled sphag in 2" seedling pots. All are in a terrarium that I run on a flood and dry cycle similar to Tamiln's. My lobata is also kept a little drier, sitting on a riser that keeps it an inch above all the others. The plants in LFS get a wash through every couple of days.

    How large do these plants get? I just got a G. hispidula and a G. pygmaea that can sit on a dime with room to spare.

    They are currently in a pot with dead LFS that is flooded to just about 1 cm under the surface of the moss.

    Thanks

    Once they are established they will spread by dividing and by sending up shoots from the traps. G. hispidula will spread quite quickly once it established, G. pygmaea will spread more slowly, doubling in size each year or so.

    G. pygmaea has leaves about 2-3mm wide and 1cm long when mature. G, hispidula has larger leaves - about 1cm across.
