    Byblis flowers

    Hello all,
    This is the first time I've had B. liniflora around long enough to get it to flower, so I decided to share some pics. I was rather impressed with the lilac/mauve coloration the flowers had, instead of the pics I often see of bright pinks... though I know it's well within the normal color range.



    I've had 3 plants all flower so far, and I've cross-pollinated them, so hopefully seeds will follow.... and the rest are all about to flower.

    Nice pictures! Hand-pollinate for a better seed set.

    I did, at least as best as I could with just a toothpick available.....but pollen was transferred, I know that much.

    'Nice to see this species getting some attention. I think it is a lot cooler than most people realize. Congrats on the blooms!

    They self-perpetuate rather nicely in a terrarium setting.

    No, house design doesn't allow for that...nor does the weather (snowing as we speak... )
    I grow them under lights, not sure what all the details and specs are for them but cool white and really bright, though they get some morning and evening sun through the window the greenhouse is by, more during winter so they're especially happy right now. Photoperiod is probably nearly 16 hour.
