    Well the crop from my 2 big linifloras finally sprouted after 2 months due to me leaving the light on them for a week...
    I'm not jus about ready to plant them yet, and right now they're sitting in a pot of really rlly wet lfs, peat, sand, and I think there is some perlit too. Anyways, I'm wondering how long I can leave them in there without transplanting. (their permanant home is going to be the pot which I kept the 2 parent byblis in). Thanks !

    This isn't the world's greatest plant to attempt to repot / transplant. It's like D. scorpiodes and the like. If you can get a plastic spoon and be careful to get the soil media without disturbing roots, you can be successful.

    too late... already transplanted them!
    worked last time though...transplanted them from about 7 mm high... they ended up getting 8 inches and lived for a year

    Congratulations! I still think we should have renamed you to Byblisdude!

    that's amazing... I breathe on my Byblis liniflora and they wilt. Such a delicate plant I never had the nerve to even try to repot them. Good Job!

    They're not that hard to transplant. Heck, I even sent some Byblis to someone and they survived.
