    I heard Byblis germinates quickly so I don't know about this one. I have had little experience with the genus, maybe someone else can tell you their experiences with this plant.

    I have never heard of Byblis germinating in 2 days as a standard. I've had it germinate within about 2 weeks but can be longer than that.

    I sowed some Byblis liniflora seed earlier this year and the seed germinated in 4-6 days. I would think this would be normal for plants that grow as annuals. If they don't sprout, grow and flower quickly, they'd be completely wiped out.



    Tamlin,
    It's great to hear your harvests are going well. The seed you sent out last time has produced marvelous little plants that some are even putting up tiny scapes of their own. You really have to love the genetic variation one can only get from seed.

    Hi,

    in my experience its a deal about light and heat:

    During winter time Byblis liniflora needed between 2-4 weeks to germinate under lights, during summer the first seedling appeared after 5-7 days. For me there are some quick germinating seeds, then there is the "main group" and after some weeks or months every now and then one seed of the later ones germinates.

    Good growing,
    Jan

    Hi,

    I've parked my D. broomensis, D. falconeri and D. dilatato-petiolaris on top of my florescent lamps ballasts. They are in a food container wrapped up with black paper to cut out light.

    Starting with these because they take some time to germinate...while the winter-growing ones need smoke.

    Which I have no idea what material I should use for burning. Any help?
    Cindy
