    Aside from being classified as being two totally different genera, Byblis has only a few true species in it - liniflora, gigantea, and lamella?. Drosphyllum has but one species - luscitanicum. I only have a picture of baby Drosophyllum, but someone like elgecko has pictures of a mature plant. I do have pictures of only B. liniflora, the easier one to germinate. I believe you need GA3 and/or smoke for B. gigantea. Both genera are very sensitive to root disturbance. Savage Garden has a very goos description of cultivation and pictures, better than I can provide.
