Hi to all!
Can Genlisea grows or, at least, survives just in small level of water without any soil and devices like here some period of time?
Thanks
Oleksii

I don't know whether they would survive longterm in just water. You might be interested in this topic: http://www.cpukforum...showtopic=35169

I believe that the reference to the photo in Peter D'Amato's The Savage Garden book refers to this plant, where the plant grows through a growing medium into water: http://users.humbold...Nv24n2cover.jpg
