WHAT ARE GENLISEA

Genlisea are related to Utricularia and Pinguicula and they grow as semi aquatic or terrestrial plants. They are also known as the Corkscrew Plant, referring to the odd traps that spiral into the ground like a corkscrew.

Corkscrew plants are small rosette plants about 1-3 inches in diameter with spade-shaped leaves. The flowers are small and pretty, and somewhat similar to the flowers of Bladderwort.
