    Byblis care

    I am recieving byblis seeds and I am getting mixed answers for this question. What are the temp ranges for them after germination? I want to stick them in my heli setup but was thinking that it might be to cold at night in the 50's. Would I be able to grow them on my windowsill? I get humidity in the 40-60s and temps of the high 60s at night to the low high 70s low 80s during the day. Which would be a better place to put them? Thanks, Luca

    I'm no Byblis expert but I had mine germinate under pretty much the conditions you described for your windowsill.

    How long did they take to germinate?

    I wish I could remember...maybe a couple weeks or so? I dunno, I just threw the seeds on standard 50/50 mix, bagged up the pot, put it in my terrarium and got a couple seedlings that took off. Unfortunately mine decided to be a true annual after flowering (and I was too lazy to collect seed) although I've heard they sometimes can stick around longer.

    Is it B. liniflora or guehoi or filolia....? B. liniflora is the easiest and a lot of people do a 10% bleach solution before putting the seeds on media. Room temp seems to work.

    its liniflora. I want to put it next to my heli setup so it can get light when germinating but the temps are on the low 70s there, should I put it next to a tiny heat mat?

    The B. linaflora seeds I planted started germinating in just under 2 weeks. The conditions were mid 50's F. at night and the mid 70's in the day and good light. They grew well in those conditions, too. When the summer temps came and it was getting into the mid 80's F. they didn't seem to mind. This is a lovely species and I'm really surprised more people don't grow it. I guess it becomes an option once you get into growing from seed. I suspect it is possible to ship seedlings, though. Good luck, HeliLover!
