    Byblis filifolia

    I just recently got 6 B filifolia seeds to germinate I sowed about 10 using the 10% bleach method and 10 on mix soaked with smoke water. This is water that was poured on ash from burnt garden twigs and dry leaves, then the water is sieved. Im really amased at how fast they germinated 7-14 days and how fast the seedlings grow and that they have dew before even the cotyledons appear.

    Seedling 6 days old


    8 days old

    I hope I can get seed too and maybe try propagating it the way Cindy did with her plants. Its already grown since I took the photos. Later I will put some update photos on this thread.

    Here is the largest of the Byblis filifolia seedlings that germinated at the end of March.
    Photobucket

    Here is a close up photo of Byblis filifolia seedling. The interesting thing is the bend in the middle of the leaf around the insect I feed it 3 days ago. As I understood it Byblis are capable of movement from the pulvinis. Is it possible they can move in other parts of the leaf?

    I'm jealous. I've got a Goliath hybrid that sprouted in march, and it's still only half an inch tall. What are your conditions, soil and light wise? Also, the bending of the leaf may be caused by rot, as that is a rather large insect for the leaf width.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
