Description

The species of Genlisea are typically from tropical and subtropical locations in South America and Africa. These species are very easy to grow and many can become weeds in carnivorous plant collections. They are generally grown for their flowers. They have below ground traps which are constructed from the true leaves. They trap small organisms that live in soil. What you see above ground are leaf-like expanded stems.

Seeds per pack: 5

Germination: Genlisea usually aren't very picky about soil. In the wild, species can be found in pure sand, peaty sand, laterite soils, and guk. Water levels are usually near or even a little above the soil surface. In captivity they grow well in pure sphagnum moss as well as the standard 1:1 peat:sand. They can be grown in pots sitting in a small amount of water like Drosera but can also be grown in containers without drainage. Like other carnivorous plants, they do require pure water and can be killed by fertilizer in the soil. Sow seeds of Genlisea on the surface of your medium of choice. The medium should be wet to very wet. The seedlings may be a little slow growing at first and patience is needed.
