    Beautiful! If I was going to grow Byblis, B. gigantea would be the one. Do they dry out completely in the summer or does the sand remain somewhat damp below the surface? Is this species even available in the hobby?

    The guy who showed us this site said that this area drys completely , but it should still have some underground moisture as its a natural soak area , the giganta and drosera would die off i would think , but not sure about the byblis , would need to confirm that with some one from that area
