Seed derived plants from the cultivars, Byblis ‘Goliath’ (Barnes 2009) and Byblis ‘David’ (Barnes 2010) were cross pollinated. While the Byblis ‘Goliath’ needs buzz-pollination to release pollen, the hybrid between these two taxa develops self-pollinating flowers, like its robust B. liniflora parent. This paper is a study of these cross pollination events and its results.
