Stylidium calcaratum or book triggerplant



I seeded this trigger plants on 13 June.Then it bloomed on 12 November.Very quick to grow!!!According to Wikipedia, this plant is very short-lived.So I hope I'll get the seeds for the next seedings.

Hi Will

Thanks for your advice.In fact only few people seem to grow this amazing plants and it was quite difficult to collect tips for the cultivation.As for snails my country Japan is moving to dry winter.So it will be no problem about snails bites.But I will be aware of the problem for the next rainy season in June.I also grow afine,gramminifolium, albomontis and so on from seeds.

I have never been to Australia.But one day Id love to make a trip there to see wild triggerplants and also pygmy droseras,which is my another interest.
