    Cuttings of assorted Byblis species

    B. liniflora cuttings worked for me. This time round, I had the chance to try out another species when the whole pot of B. guehoi fell over and a branch broke.

    About 2 weeks later...

    New plant potted up. And ready to go to another parent. :flowers:


    Since it was a success, I decided to save some the declining B. liniflora as well as take more B. guehoi cuttings. Will be trying it on B. 'Goliath' and B. rorida once they are almost done with flowering.

    Cool
    Are those being rooted in 100% perlite?

    Wow I never knew Byblis could be propagated like this. Does it make a differnce if they are flowering? do they form roots as easily if they have already started flowering? I know flowers change the hormone balance of the plant so I just wondered.

    Yup, 100% perlite.

    I have taken cuttings from not-yet-flowering B. liniflora plants before and they work too. Not sure if the time taken was any different though.
