@gjones the care for them is a bit different from other carnivorous plants, I did 5:1 ratio of grit to peat moss, the grit I used was perilte, leca, seramis (calcinated clay) and vermiculite. They need a bit of limestone or calcinated clay in the media. Then I keep it constantly moist. Its a very easy plant, doesn't mind low home humidity and flowers every year.

Thanks for the info! I’ll keep an eye out for one of these as it looks like it really traps those gnats.

Potted in a mix of perlite, vermiculite, seramis, leca and peat moss. Kept moist with distilled water.
