    Hi guys,

    I guarantee it's not a small hand, but a big Genlisea. I should know since it's my own hand, hahaha! Just for reference, I just measured my index finger and it's 8cm long from the palm of my hand. So those rosettes were 4-5cm across.

    As for Dino's question, yes this plant was growing as an affixed aquatic, in a very wet seepage area among grasses, with the leaves submerged. The soil was black and peaty with some sand.

    You are right in saying that G.violacea does not usually grow as a semi-aquatic, this is one of the reasons why I believe the plant in the picture above represents a different species. G.violacea "giant" or G.sp."giant violacea" usually grows in perennially wet habitats and is a perennial itself, while G.violacea usually grows in habitats that are wet only during the rainy season and are themselves anuals (in the wild, not in cultivation).


    Take care,
    Fernando Rivadavia

    P.S. What's Bob Z's website? I want to check it out. Let's hope there's mention as to the authors of the pictures there...

    The photo that you posted is on Fernando's site. All you found on my site is a link to Fernando's photo. It is usually not good form to post an image from another person's site on the forum -- a link perhaps, but not the image.

    Hi guys,

    This plant ***IS*** in cultivation, it's what people call G.violacea "giant" or G.sp."giant violacea".

    I don't know what the secret is to get it tha big, but in general plants that are grown as semi-aquatics are bigger (at least Utrics, Drosera & Genlisea). The problem is keeping the water from becoming warm & stagnant, or else they rot.

    Anyways, that picture was taken in the wild, at Itacambira. They were in general large of course, but I obviously searched for a relatively large plant for that photograph.

    Take Care,
    Fernando Rivadavia
