The seeds are soaked in 10 parts water: 1 part bleach for about 6 hours until all the seeds are white.

I am conducting an experiment with the B. liniflora seeds. I poured some on moist media, without pretreatment. Another group I tried the 10% bleach solution, which yielded that purple dye within like 15 seconds. The rest are sealed, in the fridge, for a month, where I will try both the...

Drosera falconeri 'Palmerston'.
Drosera ordensis, looking much better in my new setup than it ever used to. The traps are a more intense orange than they appear to be in the photo. I also find this species very difficult to photograph, for some reason, hence the blurring!
Browsing through some of my undrained pots something caught my eye.
The last time I put Byblis seeds in this container was well over a year ago. It's still quite small and I need to move a bunch of Sarracenia pitchers out of the way to see it clearly so getting pictures of it is a bit...

A couple of shots of Byblis rorida 'Lake Campion'. Astonishingly, I only sowed the seed that gave rise to this plant 4 weeks ago. Unfortunately, it seems to be the only one from its batch to germinate.
Far more common, but just as pleasing to look at- Byblis liniflora
This Byblis gigantea...
I just ordered 15 seeds. I know that some species need to burn, or need smoke water, or need G. acid.... well what do you guys suggest? I've never tried any other Byblis except for B. liniflora. The man I bought them from said they would be harvested the day I ordered so that's good.

Hi everyone, been a while since I posted. Anyway-- update.
My MONSTER byblis liniflora is doing nicely, the other one died but it left its seed.
Hopefully its offspring will inherit its weird traits
Ok... here's the question. Recently was given 4 drosera falconeri. FOC (fresh out of tissue...
