Some seed grown Byblis:
Byblis rorida (Taylor's Lagoon) in flower. Apparently this is the only Byblis species whose petals are not identical- the lower two petals in the picure are larger than the other three. I've read somewhere that this is evidence that Pinguicula and Byblis are closely related genera.
Another view of the flower to show its size. It's huge considering the straggly nature of the plant itself. Far, far bigger than B liniflora flowers. The species has proved so far to be at least as easy to grow (with the help of a little GA3).
Byblis filifolia (Boulk Area South of Lombadina on Dampier Penninsular) in flower. This fascinating species has flowers with petals that are cream on the outsides. The flowers close tightly (far more tightly than other Byblis species) at night and open widely in the day. When closed, they look like cream flowers. Interestingly, a B filifolia that I got from the EEEC in Reading a few years ago had flowers that were a little larger and wholly purple. Also, the plant was far less sticky. The flowers still closed at night, however. This speies also has several flowers open at one time. The plant itself is far more robust than B liniflora, and very sticky- like one may imagine a hybrid between B gigantea and B liniflora to look like.
Another shot of the same flower.
As I have at least two flowering specimens of each of these species, I should hopefully have some seed to distribute. These beautiful species really ought to be more commonly grown.
