Byblis liniflora, also known the Rainbow Plant, is native to northern Australia. It is a very delicate annual carnivorous plant that produces sticky droplets to catch prey. The droplets glisten in the sunlight producing an array of colors. B. liniflora flowers profusely and self-pollinates, producing an abundance of seed. The name Byblis comes from Greek mythology. The story is told that Byblis, the granddaughter of Apollo fell in love with her twin brother. When he rejected her, she wept so many tears she turning into a spring.
Size and packing method: You will receive a young plant about 3-4 inches tall. Because Byblis have fragile roots, plants are shipped in small biodegradable peat pots. Upon arrival, gently tear the bottom portion of the pot away to allow for root growth before planting the peat pot in a larger container.
