I have nowhere near the Byblis knowledge of Fishman, but I have one small suggestion.

I have found Byblis liniflora germinate much better at warmer temperatures, say the mid 80s or better.

At warm temperatures, liniflora usually germinates in a month or so.

At normal room temperatures, it takes 2 months to a year for them to sprout.

But that is just my personal experience.

I agree with Shadowtski. Warm temps will help greatly. One week to a month on this one for me. My record with the particular liniflora species is three days. I will most likely never beat that one.

Good morning!

I checked on the water germination and I can tell the seeds are absorbing some of the water like the other varieties do, but of course still too early. It stays pretty warm in the area where the test tubes average 78-82. I'll post pics as soon as they sprout..

Please do. I am looking forward to hearing of your results :)

Just a quick follow up, hopefully with pictures in the near future..

Simple water germination did the trick.

No other additives. I placed them in a test tube, 4 seeds, and 2 germinated within 6 days with a very small amount of light also provided!

Good stuff. Not liniflora, but here are a couple of Byblis aquatica that germinated after the seeds ejected from one of my plants a couple of weeks ago and fell into the water where my diffuser panels are that I have in the enclosure. I didn't see the seeds when they fell, but now it is becoming clearer that I lost several of them from a pod that opened. I'm leaving them as is, as I want to see how long I can keep them alive like that :-). I don't really need any more of this species anyhow and will be a fun experiment.
Congrats on germination btw!

Im from Asia Philippines.
Byblis liniflora Germinated after 7days.
I used smoke method in egg tray wrapped them with cling wrap Then smoked the inside by rolling paper and pierced at the wrap. Works best for me
