Default How I germinate Byblis liniflora seeds.

Hi Guys,

Recently I got some B.liniflora seeds from picesilim and they are about 3 weeks old. I used 10% bleach method and they germinated well and fast.

I used 10% Tesco brand bleach mix with RO water. Poured the seeds into the mixture and stir slowly. The seeds bleaching process is to remove seeds germination inhibitor which is the blackish (dark purple) coating.

I followed the bleaching process as shown in the video below.

Once the seeds start to look whitish, I stopped the bleaching process and poured the mixture (seeds + bleach mix) onto a filter paper (folded into a cone shape) to drain off all the liquid. With the seeds trapped on the filter paper,I then rinse the seeds with RO water. The seeds are now ready to be sowed.

Picture below shows how the seeds look like after being bleached and a newly germinated plantlet for size comparision.


The media used is pure sphagnum moss soaked in RO water.The seeds are distributed on top of the moist media using tweezer. The whole pot is not covered and put on water tray. It is given full sunlight, protected from rain through clear plastic shade.

The seeds germinated in just 9 days!

Hope this information is helpful to those who plans to start to grow Byblis from seeds.

Hi Bactrus,

Those dielsiana and burmani seeds you sent me were sowed on 13 Dec and given same environment as my other drosera. However, the success rate for dielsiana is not good (only 2 plantlets). Burmanii is better. They are very very tiny eventhough planted earlier than the byblis. The media used also turns green with algae so not sure whether they will survive or not. Will update my growlist once confirm they can overcome the algae.

I thought that algae will not affect seedlings.......Its only fungi that will isn't it??? I don't have any of these guys but my nep seeds are in pots full of algae.
