    I hate perlite because it tends to float up out of media when the pots are kept really wet and it also seems to be a great place for algae and moss to take hold and them swarm the pots. I am also concerned about some of the stuff that leaches out of it being bad for plants.

    Yes you can grow them wet so long as the temps are not dropping to low (below 15ish)

    some people have problems with pearlite because i think it encourages algea or something?

    you could grow it like the guy in d'amato's book. he has them growing in a containger in pure lfs with a scroon to hold it in, then the pretty roots are dangling in a box of water. it's really cool!

    Hi guys,

    To say Genlisea are semi-aquatic is the same as saying that Utrics are too. Depends... which species Some are truly semi-aquatic like G.repens, G.guyanensis, G.sanariapoana, and G.sp."giant violacea".

    G.violacea is usually annual in the wild and likes moist sandy soil or moss-covered rocks.

    I'm happy to see you growing one of my "babies", actually the 1st Genlisea I saw in the wild and introduced to cultivation (I think it was 1992!). G.violacea from the Serra do Caraša in SE Minas Gerais state is a beautiful form and also very precious nowadays since it maybe be extinct in the wild, unfortuantely.

    Take Care,
    Fernando Rivadavia

    P.S. I forgot to say that it is by no means a lowlander! G.violacea is always found above ~1000m altitude and those at Caraša grow around 1600-2000m.

    I think they grow as perenials in cultivation. Fernando is G.sp."giant violacea" the same as G.violacea "giant"?
