    Byblis cuttings experiment - inspired by a friend

    Notice the upper portion with green leaves and the lower portion with the dead leaves


    This is a portion of the stem with green leaves still intact. It is now producing two offshoots (the reddish large one on the right and a small one to the left).


    Somehow cutting at the area which no longer has fresh green leaves kills off the main stem.

    This one has turned completely brown.


    This one is drying up from the cut end.


    The growing tips which were cut off.

    This is doing well, leaves are still firm.


    This one is going, going...the leaves have gone limp.

    Thank you for sharing that! I'm guessing that having live LFS is pretty helpful.

    The growing tip which took, slightly over a month later.




    Roots formed in perlite and LFS.


    Repotted into old media of peat and sand, looking very established.

    Great Job! B. liniflora are pretty hard to get cuttings to root IMO. I actually haven't had any growing for about 1 year now even though I have plenty of seeds. I need to plant the seeds soon and get one going.
