Genlisea violacea


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

this species is a Genlisea violacea, I receive seeds from my friend Paulo Minatel,

is my first genlisea species germination.

I use 70% sphagnum moss and 30% sand, rain water and a lot of sun light :tu:

Hi all,

thanks for your comments!

natapongw: 60 days (estimate)

Jefforever: I have some Genlisea hispidula too, this species will have flowers ...

... I will measure for compare the two species

jimscott: LFS is 'live sphagnum moss'? It's the substrate in the surface.

Daniel: The flower is deep purple, the blue is 'thing' of my camera. Picture 12 have the better color.

Congrats once again Carlos!

Don't forget that you have to hand pollinate these (or hope you have insects that do it!). Or else you won't get seeds.

And for those of you who were curious about the colors, this is a typical color for G.violacea growing between the Serra do Cipó highlands and the highlands surrounding the town of Diamantina, both in Minas Gerais state, SE Brazil. This specific clone comes from an area just east of Diamantina called Couto de Magalhães. I think I collected it nearly 2 years ago and gave the seeds to Paulo.

Best Wishes,

Fernando

It´s a importante information, I put in PCBR but not here:

This genlisea came from Couto de Magalhães de Minas, Minas Gerais State, Brazil.

Now, I need new colors and locations, I loved this species :pleasantry:

Ah, Genlisea lobata is a difficult species?

Regards.

Hi Aymeric,

do you have pictures of your G. lobata and G. violacea?

I use 70% sphagnum moss and 30% sand, rain water and a lot of sun light :pleasantry:

I have G. aurea in sphagnum 50%, sand 50% ... ... no problem, but no flowers :wink:
