Yes it's a good method. My genlisea has water 1 at 5 cm under the soil.

Today, just a little Genlisea Aurea {Itacambira, Northern Minas}

Hi, finally I managed to see my G. roraimensis flower. There are so many plants flowering and unfortunately I will be able to see only this one opened... Well, one is better than non.

Anthony, how strong light you are using? Because my G. aurea or G. roraimensis like to flower from time to time, but I only once saw opened flower of G. aurea. The other one I missed twice already (studies. :(). I suspect it opened only once though.

Wow ! Your plants are stunning!

I have a little genlisea aurea here, but still no flowers.

Maybe this summer? :)

I grow my gen as a semi-aquatic plant. A peatmoss/sand pot in another bigger full of water.

You think is a good method ?

My plant seems to like that, growing nicely.

Anthony, have you had that species from your avatar identified (assuming it's a Genlisea, I can't see)? If not, take a look at the new Genlisea monograph by Andreas Fleischmann:

http://www.redfernnaturalhistory.com/books/name/a_monograph_of_the_genus_genlisea

He's done an amazing job separating all the yellow-flowered species, including correctly identifying the know species (G.aurea, G.roraimensis, G.filiformis, G.pygmaea, G.repens) and resuscitating a few old species (G.pulchella, G.oxycentron, G.nigrocaulis) and even cites a new species that should be in print anytime soon.

The genus is discussed inside-out from all possible aspects, a must read!!!

Best wishes,

Fernando Rivadavia

Hi,

No I haven't yet identified the genlisea on my photo with the book.

We sold it to me as genlisea filiformis. But I don't find any more photos of his flowers to identify him. But I am going to try all the same.

Soon may be, photos of the flowers of genlisea pygmaea.

I'm mad about Genlisea barthlottii's photos on Andreas's book :D

Best Regards

Anthony
