    Genlisea pollination

    Genlisea potting mix

    Or should it be genliseae? I am planning on bringing a G. Hispidula or Violancea into work where there is very low humidity. My plan is to put it in a glass container that is nearly full with rainwater and LFS. What type of mix would you recommend for either of these plants?
