Genlisea look nice like that, but Algae can be a problem in that type of setup.  

I think I managed to kill all my Genlisea last year. I left them in the greenhouse until mid November and the cold got to them. I had hoped they would recover from a bit of root that hadn't been frost bitten, but nothing has come back in any of the pots this year. :(

I spoke too soon I haven't quite lost all of them. A small bundle of leaves has appeared in my Genlisea violacea x lobata giant pot, so at least one s hanging on.

Thanks for the thought Robert, I'm not replacing plants right now anyway, I'm desperately trying to get some space in my greenhouse so I'm trying to reduce the collection this year.
