Title: Byblis aff. filifolia Pago giant

Konnichiwa!

In 1999, I obtained seed of many tropical Byblis species from Mr. Allen Lowrie. I was very impressed by all these tropical Byblis species. One of them was Byblis aff. filifolia Pago giant. This was the first species I selected to start my Byblis breeding program with. This species was discussed by Mr. Allen Lowrie in his Byblis presentation at the international conference in Leiden, The Netherlands in Aug. 2010.

In 1999, I grew 3 variations of Byblis aff. filifolia Pago giant.

F02:"outer flower surface whitish" Honeymoon Beach, Kimberley

F08:"Giant plant" Dominic Creak, Kimberley

F15:"giant plants to 50cm tall" Pago, Kimberley
(F number is my code number abbreviation for the Byblis filifolia complex.)

You can see mature plants of F02 and F15.

You can see the mature plants of F08.
photo15 in the reply#6: http://icps.proboard...=...&thread=524
and photo17 in the same thread.
The size of the pinkish mauve flower and the deep pinkish mauve flower were almost the same as the very first plants I raised from Mr. Allen Lowrie's seeds.
I took photo17 in 2003, at that time, the effect of selectively breeding had already appeared in the size of white flower clone.

In the past several years, I have concentrated on the selective breeding of much smaller variations of Byblis.
You can see:

Hopefully, in the next several years, I will be able to have enough time for breeding F08 much more.

Hi Isao,

Absolutely stunning flowers! Thanks for sharing them with us. :biggrin:

It looks like you have been quite busy working on your Byblis breeding program. I've been quite busy as well;
