    BTW I also think that seasons have something to do with it.......they seem to love being flooded in late spring, summer and early autumn but they dont really like it in winter

    Remember that G.violacea and G.lobata are annuals in the wild, so usually they are not around in the dry season. Often theya re submerged in the wet season, but it is not normal.

    Other species love being underwater, like G.sp."giant violacea", G.aurea, G.repens, G.guianensis, and G.sanariapoana.

    Last of all remember, that even when underwater, it is usually running cool spring water, which is VERY different from sitting a pot in warm water... (although a few years ago I was at a really hot region of W Brazil, on a very hot day, wading at a seepage wher ethe water collected into a a stream which must have been around 40C, and it was full of Drosera, Utrics and Genlisea which seemed not to mind the temperature!)

    See ya,

    I grow G. violacea 'Giant' in pure LFS in a terrarium with many terr. Utrics and Drosera. The water level is about midway up the LFS. I am not sure the traps go all the way to the bottom though.

    Thank you all for the input.....it's been helpful. With luck, the genlisea will be growing like weeds in a few months.
