Genlisea geschenkt, was nun?

Recommended Posts

Christian Voss

Hallo zusammen,

ein Bekannter hat mir (sicherlich mit guten Absichten) eine G. hispidula {Lentibu, Zimbabwe} zukommen lassen.

Hierbei handelt es sich um meine erste Genlisea, was ihm auch bewusst war. Daher hat er sich für die hispidula entschieden, was seiner Beschreibung nach eine Anfängerart ist.

Nun habe ich mich belesen, was bei Genlisea nicht ganz so einfach war. Die Kulturanleitungen sind, sagen wir mal, dünn gesät. Daher möchte ich mich hier nochmal dessen versichern, was ich mir angelesen habe:

Ich habe die Pflanze in sandiges Substrat getopft und in meinem Hochlandterrarium untergebracht. Dort steht sie in einem Übertopf im Anstau auf halber Topfhöhe.

Interessieren würde mich:

- Passt das so in etwa?

- Ist Terrarienhaltung zwingen erforderlich oder kann man Genlisea auch offen kultivieren?

- Ist der hohe Anstau zwingend oder reicht ein "normaler" Anstau wie etwa für Drosera?

Danke an die Experten und

viele Grüße,

Christian

Hi,

 

Genlisea hispidula is a very easy specie. Use a blent of 60% peat and 40% sands. Genlisea hispidula have very deep roots. You can use a classic pot of 10-11cm of tall but a higher one is better as 20cm.The first need of Genlisea is a very wet substratum. You must kept a level of water above the half tall of the pot. You can use a bottle you cut in half like this :

Genlisea need temperature between 16(minimum) and 30°C, a strong light. The humidity is not important.

Hi Anthony,

thanks a lot.

So, to sum it up: No terrarium is needed but very high water level is important!?

Is this suitable for all species of genlisea?

By the way, the plant came to me from a french grower... ;-)

... und für die des Englischen nicht mächtigen:

Anthony schreibt, dass der sehr hohe Anstau (über halbe Topfhöhe) der wichtigste Punkt bei der Kultur von Genlisea ist. Auch sollten wegen der langen Wurzeln (oder Fallen) möglichst tiefe Töpfe verwendet werde.

Die (hohe) Luftfeuchte ist laut Anthony nicht entscheidend.

Vielen Dank und

viele Grüße,

Christian

Hi,

 

I know some people grow all year their genlisea in sun porch but I never have tried. I think the plants were stronger but grow more slowly than terrarium. It better to kept your genlisea all the year in same condition (terrarium or sun porch), the moving could stress them. But Genlisea hispidula is a very strong plant you could try in terrarium the winter and sun porch or outside the summer. The more important is the high level of water which give enough humidity for the plant.

 

Is not suitable for all species. You could roughly separate the genus Genlisea in two parts, Genlisea from Africa and Genlisea from South America. Genlisea from Africa had culture conditions rather seem lowland and Genlisea from South America rather seem highland. But I have both in my terrarium and they grow very well.

 

I think the French grower is Damien ? ;)

 

Best regards

Anthony.M
