    Im going to get a piece of Genlisea violacea.
    Will it root without problems?
    The soil will be 2:1. 2 parts peat, one part perlite.
    Is this O.K?
    The person who is giving me the piece said that peat and
    a bit of perlite is really good.
    And how do I look after it?
    It will be on a desk next to a east facing window.
    It will NOT be in a terranium, it wil be in a water tray.
    If you say its nessecery, I can put a plastic bottle
    over the plant. The inside of the bottle will get sprayed 2 + times a day.
    Apart from that, any other suggestions?
    I am completely new to Genlisea.
    Any help appreciated,

    i guess you can try it. i dont know what will happen.

    for most people its very easy to give plants lowland conditions and alot harder to give plants highland conditions. but just curious, why cant you give them warm nights?

    Because the U.K does not have warm nights.
    It will be in my room, and I dont want to
    boil with heat at night.

    you can use a heat mat for repriles, it wont heat up your room lol.

    or you could get a small 10 gallon aquarium with a heat mat under that, or a fish bowl with a heat mat.. or whatever really

    I have grown many species of Genlisea in my sunroom year round, high temps in the summer and hit 40C and lows in the winter can drop to 0C though I do my best to keep it at 5C. All grew fine though they did slow down considerably during the winter. If you are going to be as crazy as I was I recommend letting the media stay only just moist at that time. I think they prefer higher light levels but if your plant grows happy in the window then don't argue with it. Personally I would be more inclined to use a media of equal parts peat and sand but that is just because I hate perlite.

    Huh?
    Why do you hate perlite, Pyro?
    I never knew you could hate a rock.
    I think I will keep my Genlisea wet(they are semi-aquatics)
    Is this O.K?
