Abstract

The annual Byblis species (Byblidaceae, Lamiales) are predominantly Australian endemics with B. liniflora extending also north to Papua New Guinea (Cross et al. 2018). Beside their features as sticky carnivorous plants, many enthusiasts especially appreciate their bushy appearance with many showy hermaphroditic flowers. The following report features our experiences with the cultivation and hybridization of B. filifolia and B. liniflora over two decades at our heated greenhouse in Weil am Rhein (Germany).

Keywords: Byblis, cultivation, hybridization, enzyme test, trichome motion, GA3
