    Hello I have been looking ALL day trying to find a byblis linflora to buy and the closest thing I have came to was seeds. This is starting to drive me nuts I guess if the only thing I can get is seed I'll get it but I was hoping maybe one of you might know where I can find a plant(or 2 [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] ).

    These are very frail and delicate plants, and I doubt they would ship well. I suggest you try the seed if you can find it, you'll probably have better success this way.

    I believe the ICPS seedbank has some. If you aren't a memeber I think you can still get them.

    ANd Mr. Tamlin is right, I have heard these plants don't survive shipping.

    So seed seems to be the only option [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Seed gets my vote as well. Like Tamlin said, they are very fragile plants and I can't imagine shipping one. And I've heard that is why most CP sellers don't offer plants...don't want the hassle of complaints from dead or dying plants.

    Seed seems to be hard to find though. Good luck!

    unknownclown, where's your seed source? I've been looking and would really like to add these to my collection.

    Nep G, Byblis liniflora seeds don'r require ANY treatment before sowing. They germinate very easy and grow into flowering size plants in just a few months. Thats another reason why you are beter off using seed!
    Byblis gigantea seeds however are very tricky to germinate. They need to be smoke treated or soak the seed in gibberelic acid. I managed to germinate 8 seeds last year but the plants died during the winter. I am going to give it another go this year!!!
