yes, bleached them most conscientiously... could it be that some of the seeds have been in the fridge for too long? some are 3 weeks old.

how long can byblis seeds be stored and still be viable?

My first try with Byblis was quite successful: i had close to 100% germination rate. In fact, my germination pot was so crowded I had to move some somewhere else (MISTAKE!)

Now, 2 months on, they've stopped growing. Dewy, but growing very slowly. The tallest is about 2 inches high.

I hope you have better luck than me

Byblis don't like their roots getting disturbed. I grew all my seeds in a small pot and it was so crowded. I moved 1 plant to another pot. Now the one in the other pot is still so short but my other plants have already flowered and produced seeds.

I know, I learnt that the hard way

Either way, neither the moved or un-moved ones are growing well for me!

If they're small enough they shouldn't die, but they'll grow real slowly. Just wait...
