Genlisea subglabra, is a perennial, terrestrial Corkscrew Plant with many, very small, obovate shaped leaves in a tight rosette. It is one of the largest Genlisea. Leaves can naturally develop an encasing slime, which may assist by keeping algae from building up on the leaves. They prefer very saturated and warm, peaty soils, even peat slurries, in bright light. They bloom year round with large, bright purple flowers, often only 1 per spike. This is a charming plant, best grown in a terrarium or greehnouse. A clump or portion of genlisea contains 1 or more plants when shipped.
May be a subspecies of G. hispidula.
