My G. hispidula

My G. hispidula after exchanging the substrate:

 

Photo 1 - Bottom of the antique vase. Notice the multiple pitfalls of this CP.

Photo 2 - I may be wrong, but I believe that there are prey that were imprisoned in the traps of this CP.

Photo 3 - The eight seedlings that removed the old pot. Note the amount of roots-traps, or best stolons (I infer that this is the correct name), this plant generates.

Hi Rodrigo,

 

i really like the second picture.

@Anthony, the substrate seems to be a dead sphagnum/sand mix.

 

Best regards,

Hi,

 

It was what I thought but it seems to me there is very much dead sphagnum. I once have tried this substrate with Genlisea africana. It was an echec. Never the plant had grown.

Hi everyone,

 

Nice topic Rodrigo! Genlisea are so amazing plants!

 

Dead Sphagnum can work well including with G.africana. When I was in Angola, I saw some populations of this last species growing amount living and dead sphagnum whereas other populations were growing on sandy soils. I cultivation, I noticed that dead sphagnum can be really usefull when growing conditions deal with high temperatures and high humidity all year round (in a tropical terrarium for example). However a more "classical" growing media like a mix of peat and sand also works really well in the most cases.

 

All the best,

Damien
