I acquired a genlisea violacea x lobata two weeks ago and, unfortunately, it has turned into one of my failures.
The plant arrived prepotted in a ~2" cubed plastic container in what I assume is the correct medium. I placed the pot into distilled water and let the plant rehydrate for a couple of hours. Afterwards, I put it into a 10gal terrarium and stood it in a plastic saucer with distilled water so that approximately 1/2 of the pot was submerged (other conditions: ~8" under 46W fluoros, 12h photoperiod, 80F temperature, air circulation provided by CPU fan, 70% humidity).
The plant appeared healthy for a couple of days, then slowly declined until three weeks later (now), there are only 2 visible leaves at the surface (all the others browned then turned to mush).
I haven't moved the plant to one of my other terraria because past experience shows that moving a CP when its already stressed seems to kill it faster! But, I don't want to keep it in a state where it's surviving on two leaves.....once those go, it seems to me the whole plant would be dead.
Any suggestions? I heard these are easy plants to grow, so I must have done something wrong, though I can't guess as to what.
Thanks for your time.
