    Aquatic = totally submerged in water. Semi-aquatic = roots and some stem in water, remainder of plant above water. Byblis liniflora too grows well as a semi-aquatic.

    I came across this topic in a search. Very interesting stuff! I really wish the pictures were still up, because I'd love to see how this was accomplished. I might want to try it myself someday.

    This was how I grew my Byblis liniflora - in a swamp of live LFS, until the hanging basket crashed into it, destroying the set up. Here's a pic of how it looked - one day before the crash:

    Say, Amateur_Expert , can you post some updated pics of your plants if they're still around?

    I appreciate the sympathies! Fortunately, as is the nature of the folks on this discussion forum, I have had a replacement Aphrodite sent and Byblis seeds pledged. Really, I wasn't begging or hinting! We're a generous lot! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
