Hello all you nice people out there.
I have recently got some seeds of Genlisea hispidula. I have a very little idea as how to grow them ( all thanks to diff sites google threw back) .Can anyone out here explain the procedure of growing them.

Corkscrew plants are easy to grow in most cases and G.hispidula is one of the easiest in the genus. Use pure LFS or the standard "CP mix" with 2 parts peat one part sand, but I find LFS better because it's easy to overwater them when they grow in peat mixes. That's the way I grow my specimens of G.hispidula:

Substrate: Pure LFS
Watering: Tray method, sits constantly in water
Temperatures: 28-30 degrees Celsius during the day and 20-25 at night
Humidity: >90%
Light: Southern windowsill and an additional 13W T5 fixture during winter
