    BUMP!

    Here are the plants at the moment. All of them are flowering except one rorida and the test-your-patience aquatica (in a separate thread).

    From left to right: B. "Pilbara" (now B. pilbarana), B. rorida, B. liniflora, B. filifolia and B. guehoi (now the tallest species)

    LOL! I'll stick with B. liniflora, even if it's a pygmy compared with B. filifolia and B. guehoi.

    Maybe I'll give these another go. I still a tiny amount of the F2 generation of the hybids. The last attempt was a dude as the plants never got any bigger than B. liniflora.

    Here are the plants now. All of them have formed seeds except B. aquatica. The tallest B. guehoi plants were going downhill so I took cuttings.

    From left to right: B. liniflora, B. rorida, B. pilbarana, B, guehoi+B. filifolia and B. filifolia



    The flowers from the top.

    Very interesting; I wonder if B. filifolia grows upright or with a more ground-scrambling habit in the wild.

    Have you grown B. lamellata or gigantea?

    Filifolia grows mainly upright for me...only needed to prop it up much later as the stem is pretty thick. Guehoi too but since it branches, it tends to fall over more often.

    I have grown both gigantea and lamellata. But never taller than several inches before they die from rot. My conditions are too hot and humid for the temperate species.
