    I have no idea how long filifolia lives for but it's very rare anyway so good luck getting your hands on one. Liniflora lives for one year UNLESS you grow it in a deep pot. If it's in a deep pot it can live longer than 1 year, how much longer than one year? I don't know but they give off tons of seed after one year anyway so you don't have to worry about losing it permanently. I really have NEVER seen a byblis filifolia being sold anywhere. Makes me want to look up some information on it. I'll let you know what I find.

    -+EDIT+-

    I found a site that shows the seasons of a lot of the CPs known. As for life span, I found that the only byblis plant that IS NOT an annual is byblis gigantea. Byblis gigantea is as easy to grow as liniflora (if not easier) byblis gigantea doesn't mind it's roots being disturbed (unlike liniflora). But the seeds are really hard to germinate. You need a smoke disc and even then I'm not sure if it's easy. I personally have never tried. As for any sites that sell Byblis filifolia, I found a UK site and a Canadian site. Here's the link to the Canadian site. They have some REALLY rare seeds actually. Even Drosophyllum lusitanicum. Here's the link. http://www.rarexoticseeds.com/Graines....ds.html
    Also, here's the link to the site with all the CP grow seasons.

    If youre starting out, get liniflora, as all other Byblis are quite hard and get big(the size of a small-medium size bush)
    No, liniflora doesnt live ONE season, but it is an annual, so it will die after a year
    However, it will set hundreds of seeds before it dies, so collect the seed and re-sow in spring [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    No byblis , or ANY other plant is hard to grow if you give it proper conditions.

    Yeah but sometimes it's hard to provide the proper conditions. I know that from experience. x.x

    From what I have heard, B.filifolia can live for many years under the right conditions.

    I think as long as you grow it in the correct conditions and with a deep pot it will grow for as long as you want it to grow. I should see how long I can keep mine alive.
