Abstract:
In a 116-d greenhouse growth experiment on a terrestrial carnivorous plant Genlisea violacea (Lentibulariaceae), mild fertilization of a peaty soil led to a 2.4 fold increase in total plant biomass as compared to the controls. Tissue P and K content in fertilized plants was significantly higher than that in the controls.
