Some Genlisea Again !

Recommended Posts

You bring up an interesting question: does anybody know if Genlisea hybrids are fertile?

I am growing one for the first time, G.lobata X flexuosa, and I've been hand-pollinating it. No seed yet, even though some of the pedicels have bent downwards (as they usually do with species of subgen.Tayloria when pollinated).

BTW, please check your "violacea X lobata", as the common one in cultivation was actually made using the "giant violacea", which was later published as G.flexuosa. Here's a pic of mine:

Do you get any seed from those flowers? My Genlisea lobata x violacea has two flowerstalks and I am a bit wondering :smile:

I once had seeds of Genlisea Violacea but I don't believe to have had seed of Genlisea Violacea x Lobata.

Maybe if someone have made a further crossing of that hybrid, it could produce seeds. But I would doubt it would produce any from self pollination.

Cephalotus : I've just found a link of Rosolis76 with a flower of Genlisea Subglabra :

http://www.cpukforum...74&hl=subglabra

The colors are rather the same. Furthermore, mine Genlisea Subglabra comes from his home.

Edit : I will try an other Genlisea Subglabra come from somewhere else.

I buyed this Genlisea two years ago. It was labelled as Genlisea violecea "giant". I kind of doubt that it's a Genlisea flexuosa. So can anyone help me ID it?

Hmmm.... Doesn't look like a perfect match to flexuosa from this picture alone. More pics? It could be a hybrid between flexuosa and violacea.

BTW, my lobata X flexuosa seems to be sterile. :(

Hello,

The photo clearly doesn't show G. flexuosa - this plant looks like normal G. violacea (a variable plant!) to me.

Regarding the discussion of flower colours in the African species of Genlisea: the pale flowers and dark flowers are a result of temperature and light. Grow your plants very bright and with a notable temperature drop at night (like the plants experience when grown outdoors, as shown here), and the corolla will exhibit a much darker colour. If the temperatures are too warm at night, the flowers remain pale, no matter how much light you give to your plants. The reason for this is sugar metabolism of the plant (assimilation and dissimilation), and the fact that the red plant pigments (anthocyanes in the case of Lentibulariaceae) are dissolved in the cell vaculoes, like sugars. The same underlying mechanism is responsible for the fact that Dionaea traps are more vividly coloured and darker red in spring and autumn than in summer, although the plants will receive much more sun (but less temperature decrease at night) in summer.

All the best,

Andreas

Hi everybody,

On this day of Valentine's Day I had the pleasure to see blooming the flowers of Genlisea Africana. I think it's the first one photos of his flower in culture. I hope you will appreciate.

I got only one flower on my genlisea aurea, and it was a mutant one.

I hope i will have another one soon.
