    I germinated Byblis liniflora seeds last year and throughout time I watched my plants die out one by one. They struggled when I had the cover off. I them it in my plastic pipette dispenser containers and had a little trouble maintaining humidity for them.

    Another batch of seeds never even germinated.

    I want to try sprinkling the seeds in wet, live, LFS. Do you think it will work? Will it be too wet for them? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    For a second there, I thought you were going to tell me not to experiment. I haven't done anything yet. Still in the packet. I'll wait for responses and maybe split them up into two approaches.

    Mine do fine in LFS...
    They take a long time to germinate (my last batch took over a month and a half).

    Hmmm. That first time it took only a week to germinate. Beginners luck?

    Wow, Maybe I'm doing something wrong! Mine never germinate that quickly.

    Aside from skill level of the person doing the germinating and materials, there are other variables to consider - like freshness and viability of seed, let alone the characteristics of the plants themselves.

    Once I received some P. luscitanica seeds from an individual. Absolutely nothing germinated, after waiting several months. After that, I received a packet from someone else and within a few weeks, I got 10 seedlings.

    There is more than meets the eye with seed germination.
