    How long do Byblis Liniflora seeds take to germinate?

    I bought myself some Byblis Liniflora seeds a few weeks ago, and I planted them about two weeks ago. So far, there's no growth in the pot.

    How long do Byblis Liniflora seeds take to germinate?

    I just planted some today. What kind of seed setup did you go with? I didn't really have the full scoop on what route to go with. So I stuck with the dew seed scenerio.. 50:50 peat & perlite, tray of water, covered for added humidity, nice and close to the grow lights.

    I've heard it can take a few weeks. They do well in a mix of 2 parts sand to 1 part peat.

    Forever..... they never germinate.

    Did nothing to them, placed on soil mix of equal parts perlite, LFS, and peat moss.... nothing

    Treated seeds with bleach solution and used same soil mix....... nothing

    Key is getting fresh seeds, that aren't crushed. I think it's almost best to send them in a little box because of how easily they can crush. If fresh, I find they germinate very easily in 7-14 days. My last batch I planted, I got 26 out of 40 to germinate within a 2 week time period. They have always germinated very successfully for me, when fresh. However old seeds or crushed ones won't.
