    Exclamation A new form of Byblis....

    Hello Friends,

    Well, after some extensive selective cross-breeding amongst my Byblis 'Goliath' clones, I've finally reached success! I'm pleased to announce the first documented miniature form of Byblis 'Goliath' aka "BG-C12 X BG short clone C" ;

    By crossing this short clone variant with "short clone H", I've finally gotten the traits to remain consistant in all resulting seedlings. Photos of the new breed of Byblis "pygmy" seedlings are to follow soon. The seedlings are beginning to max out at one inch tall and will be flowering soon! Now, if these small clones are indeed self-compatable/pollinating like Byblis liniflora, then that will be interesting!









    More exciting new discoveries to follow, so stay tuned!

    Happy Growing,

    Brian.

    That sounds very cool. I'd love to get my hands on a mini byblis. Did you experiment with different germination strategies? Do they appear to be as easy as B. liniflora? Will they become available any time soon?

    Can't wait for some photos of the little guys.

    Cute, though I prefer the large goliath. Would look nice in a dense frosty clump!

    Thanks guys,

    Actually, I get the best germination results on all Byblis by soaking them for 24 hrs in gibberelic acid prior to sowing. This seems to speed up germination for B. liniflora as well and increase germination ratios...

    My formula used is; 1 gram GA per liter of RO water.

    Happy Growing,

    Brian.

    Nothing like looking at Byblis and Drosera on a sunny afternoon, while the sun shines on them!
