    1-3 years tops they are actualy anuals but if you keep them in deep pots they can last up to 3 years.

    I kept mine in a 4inch pot with a mix of peat/perlite/sand (I tried for equal amounts of the soils). It started out small, germinating from seed, but it eventually stood tall with nice purple flowers. I had it for about 2 years, then it started wilting and then died. It is an annual, so don't be sad to see it go. Pollinate and collect seed for more Byblis fun [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
