The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Western Australia in 2007

Return to the Trip Overview

Closer view:
I have grown Byblis gigantea to flowering, and learned that it was important to use a well-drained mix, and to avoid letting the plant's crown stay too wet. In many ways, I found it survived best when managed only a little moister than you might treat Drosophyllum.

Compare those horticultural lessons with these field observations of plants living in seasonally submerged conditions. They seem completely at odds. Isn't that interesting!
