Most likely not. The majority of the species on the market are terrestrial or semi-terrestrial, so it would be quite difficult to find one on the market that would survive in an aquatic environment. In any case, Genlisea consume mainly small, free moving protozoans that can actively swim up its traps. Blue-green algae (which are actually colonies of cyanobacteria), being relatively immobile, are not caught by the traps. Even if they were, Genlisea would be unlikely to catch an amount that would make any significant change in the algae population.
Lastly, the aquatic species are relatively tricky to cultivate, and little information is available on their care.

This thread topic is, "I am curious about this plant". Other than the thread being located in the Genlisea section, how can we know which plant lordpyro is curious about. Genlisea is not any particular plant, but a plant genus with more than twenty different species.
lordpyro, are you asking about the entire Genlisea genus or a particular Genlisea species?
