Edit: okay, apparently it is spelled Byblis and my reference spelled it wronge, lol
Lately I've taken an interest in Byblis species. *Something about their funny forms and flowers that look like they sprout of the tips of the leaves just makes me smile. *So far the only species I have worked with, or for that matter seen in real life, or even seen decent pictures of is B. liniflora, the annual/short lived small species. *Now I knew about B. giganta, but not about the other less common 4 species. *I would really like to find a nice longer-lives species to both grow for myself and at the Meijer Gardens. *Does anyone here grow these plants? *Even if it is just the more common B. liniflora I'd love to hear stories about them because frankly it's one group of plants I just don't know much about. *So far the only thing I've ever done with them is collect a little extra seed and set it in a new pot so the Meijer gardens has a back-up pot in case the something fries the existing pot. *The plant in the existing pot is very old and falling all over the place, will probubly die soon. *I would have loved to see it at it's peak, but that would have been last year. *Anyone have pictures to share? *I really love these funny little plants and I don't think we spend enough time paying tribute to them. *Thanks all
P.S. *I have an awsome window in my dorm room this year so I can bring my plants with me, yay!
P.P.S. I have a pod off of the B. liniflora from the Meijer Gardens, but I'm affraid I'll do something stupid if I germinate them at home without knowing more about them, so germination stories are also welcome... especially for the "tricky" vireties in case I ever actually manage to get seed... you would think more people would have it seeing how much the things produce, but whatever
