    Mine took about 2-3 weeks and I only get two seedlings. How big are seed pods and what colour are they? Does anybody have a picture of one?

    My limited experience with B. liniflora has been ok at best. I sowed about 10 seeds a few months ago throughout different parts of my collection and only 3 germinated. Next time I sow them I should either try PingMan's method or maybe soak them in water for 48 hours like ChristerB.

    Her is a pic from bestcarnivorousplants.com that shows a swelled seed pod in the bottom right hand corner.

    I sown one-year old seeds and two-month old seeds in December. I followed PM's method for both. Two one-year seeds germinated within a month but I have one two-month old seed germinate in tap water within 2 days! The rest are still good but the germination rate is slower than snail.

    The temperature is in the 80s. Do the seeds germinate for you guys under the sun? Or under lights? Relative humidity in your area? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    When you mean germinate in water, you mean just water and no soil or anything?

    I'm beginning to wonder if I used too much bleech. I took a small turkish coffee cup, put just a bottom covering layer of bleech. It was only 4-5 drops. Then I filled the rest with distilled water and mixed it. I placed the seeds into the cup. You could see a brown substance dissolving from the seeds. Once I saw that the brown substance wasn't dissolving anymore, I pulled them out and rinsed them in distilled water. The seeds though when done were not pale, they were still very much so brown and dark.

    According to P-man's method, he says to put 1/10 bleach to water, so I'm guessing that means no matter the size of the container, it's always 10% bleach to 100% water.
