    I sowed some B. liniflora seeds all around my collection a few weeks back and I'm starting to see some growth...but I don't know if it's B. liniflora or some of the other seeds I've sown [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] I know, I know, I should have kept it all organized. The thing is, I'm always all about the more natural, crowded look. This isn't the point though...

    ...Can anyone post a picture of a newly emerging B. liniflora seedling? It would help in a huge way [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]

    If I only I had a camera and 2 months ago, I would have shown you a pic. When I first saw the seedling, it only had two leaves and it was in the shape of the letter T.

    That's definitely what my seedling looks like. Was it bigger than your average Drosera seedling? From what I can see this one is.

    Elgecko: Thanks for the picture. How old are the plants there?

    Yep, B. liniflora seedlings are much larger than those of Drosera.

    Good luck, it's a beauty of a plant to grow!

    If you want to make it grow faster, start feeding it mayflies or fruitflies. I had two byblis that sprouted almost the same day, just 2 days apart. I feed the older one and never feed the younger one, now the older one has 14+ leaves and the younger still only has 5 :P. Don't try feeding it ants, for me ants just never get stuck :P.

    I do not recall, but would guess around 6 months.

    Thanks guys. Hopefully it is a Byblis liniflora seedling. I'm really looking forward to growing it!
