    Cool

    Well mine haven't germinated yet. They aren't covered by anything. They are in full sun but the sun isn't so strong right now. It's REALLY humid today and rainy. Maybe I'll have some seedlings by tomorrow. *crosses fingers*

    Yes, that is what I meant by cover - definitely not bury them. I don't know how different Byblis are from let's say sundews, but all the suggestions I have read about germinating says to cover, moisten, keep them in an unlit place, and wait. Then slowly acclimate them to light and removing the cover.

    Well, germination time also depends on how fresh the seeds are. It normally takes a couple of days to a few months to germinate seed depending on conditions. So, I wouldn't expect seedlings in less than five days...but it certainly would be a nice surprise!
    A flytrap ate my homework!

    I wouldn't expect that with any CPs.

    Well actually guys there are certain species of Uricularia and/or Genlisea whose seed will germinate in a matter of hours after having come in contact with water. My U. reniformis giant had green cotyledons in 3 days. The seed were planted within seconds of harvesting.

    Peace.

    It took only a couple hours for seeds of U.nelumbifolia to germinate. I have recently germinated B.liniflora seeds in less than 2 weeks. These seeds were stored for a year at room temperature.
