    This probably isn't normal, is it?

    Is your setup heated? And what mix are you using?

    Looks about normal to me. Great job Jimmy!! You'll have seed soon!

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Cool! I had no idea either - that these could go eight weeks from germination to flowering!

    Thanks again Crystal!

    Edit: Jim, these were in my LL terrarium, in the corner with the least amount of light and heat (the heat comes purely from three 26w CFL bulbs); I moved them into my intermediate/HL terrarium, and that's about the time they started flowering. I think the lower temps and different lighting pushed it into flowering mode. The mix is a combination of whatever I could find at the moment - mainly LFS and vermiculite, with a little bit of peat and perlite. Higher concentrations of peat, perlite, and vermiculite kind of rose to the top of the pot.

    Here are some much faster, much more colorful plants that sprouted from seed that I got from CPBlake.



    I've spread seeds from my three other Byblis through several pots - some on my windowsill, some in the LL terrarium. No germinations yet, but it's still early.

    how tall is ur pot?
    i managed to get 4/5 seeds to germinate so far w/ the bleach method (using a similar media that you described). They're starting to take off, but the media is only about 3 inches deep. I want to make sure that I don't need to transplant them into a larger pot.
    thanks
