    Quick Byblis Inquiry

    Quick question!

    My B. liniflora is 3 months and 12 days old... how big should it be?

    I have a suspicion that it is not as big as it should be...

    My most recent plants never got any bigger than an inch. OTOH, 2 years ago, they were ~5". I think I had better conditions when they were at the lab.

    Oh wow.. I always thought that byblis got to be like a foot tall.. pictures really do massively screw up proportions. I guess mine are fine then. The biggest one might be like 1.5 inches but they still seem to be actively growing. Pretty nice.

    Do you always flood them like that? I always thought they liked it slightly drier than most CPs. Just very slightly.

    Mine got huge last year - after it hit 10-12 inches, it flopped over the side of the pot, but then just kept growing and growing. I got quite a bit of seed, most of which I gave away, then I planted some about 4 or 5 months ago. They're about five to six inches tall now, and the first flower has appeared. I finally got rid of the old plant because it was too bushy and was in the way. I think it might have grown forever. It did like it a bit drier.

    What size of a pot do you use? I just used a 3 inch pot and I'm thinking that may be why they're kinda going a little slowly.. it's been almost 4 months and they're only just barely an inch tall.

    Most of them were "born" in the swamp and the one not sprouted there was moved as a seedling. Basically, they were acclimated in those conditions and weren't messed with... until the Nep pot gave way and crashed into the tub. Then they were toast!

    Aww that sucks. :/ I hate it when that kind of thing happens.

    I also have some filifolia seeds, I'm hoping they decide to germinate sometime soon.. like within a month.
