Thread: How do you grow genlisea?

    Guest
    I was just wondering how everyone grows their Genlisea. Pictures would be great [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Any other cool set-ups like the one in Savage Garden? Has anyone else tried that?

    I have but one lonely leaf cutting, given to me by Elgecko a few weeks ago. Currently, I have it outside, open tray, southern exposure, sand and peat mix. Incredibly, I see the (2) tiniest of green leaves emanating from its base.

    I'm not the resident expert, so we'll have to wait for more experienced growers.

    i just got most of mine. G. filliformis looks like it may not make it but my others look good so far. all are in peat i think. either that or they are in my new mix of mainly cocofiber and a lil bit of peat and LFS i dont remember ill have to look tonite. all constantly moist/wet since they are in with my terrestrial Utrics. bright light. so far so good except for the filliformis which i have been told is picky and difficult.

    I grow mine currently in undrained pots of LFS, peat moss, and sand. I flood them from time to time.
    I have taken a few leaf cuttings of my Genlisea lobata a month or so ago. Since they have started new plants, I just transfered them a week ago into the new pot I made for them so that the traps will be visible. Here's a link that shows the set up I'm trying for the new leaf cuttings. http://elgecko.proboards28.com/index.c....3487496

    I grow G. lobata in undrained containers of mostly lfs. Here's a pic:



    I also took a leaf cutting a while ago, and it's sprouted now, too. Don't know what I'll do with it yet, and I have no way of looking at the traps. Nice flowers, though!
