    New hybrid - B. 'Goliath' x guehoi

    Hi everyone,

    I will be sharing the progress of the new Byblis hybrid in this thread. Enjoy!

    Parents
    B. 'Goliath' - bore the fruits; over 120cm tall before the wind broke it into two; as a single stem until about 85cm in height when branching took place
    B. guehoi (A) - pollen used; branched very early and produced lots of flowers

    Out of 100 seeds that were sowed, 70 germinated since 7 Oct 2011...with about 50% germinated within the first week.

    The seeds were sowed in GA3 for 24hrs and sowed on a mixture of peat/sand/LFS.


    When the seedlings are about 1-2cm tall, they are transplanted into pure LFS.




    Assorted seedlings in pure LFS and peat/sand/LFS.










    p.s. The hybrid seeds will be made available to TF members in the near future!

    Hi everyone,

    Just a clarification for the following pic. The seedlings in the peat/sand mix are the first to germinate. Each of them was transplanted into LFS and subsequently the whole clump is then moved into the thumb pot. The peat/sand mix is just a cover for the ugly greenish LFS on the surface. Peat/sand is not a better media.
