  1. Title: Polygenic inheritance Konnichiwa! I have often wondered if the unique flower character of DT14 was managed by polygenes. Now that I have gathered addition data on this line of inquiry I now sense that this character maybe managed by polygenes. I think the flower size and the flower shape of Byblis are also possibly managed by polygenes. In my breeding program I have found it extremely difficult to fix the flower size of Byblis. I believe the reason for this is also controlled by polygenes. I have become aware that the following characters of: lighter and darker colour shades of the
  2. Dear Fernando-san, Dear jimscott-san, Konnichiwa! Thank you very much! Dear Greg-san, Konnichiwa! Please see reply #13: http://icps.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=...2348&page=1 and reply #17: http://icps.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=...2348&page=2 I grow all my tropical Byblis under the same condition. You already know JohnnyBlaze-san's success. http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=38315 He said that he had not used any fertilizer. I received an update photo from him on October 6. His plant (which he called purple petal) had exploded into flower! It was an
  3. Dear Fernando-san, It is not correct. And To compare normal F08 clones with the F08 clones that the chromosome numbers were doubled with colchicine. The clones were smaller than normal clones.

  4. Title: Byblis rorida 'non bristle form' DT14 Konnchiwa! CS14 and CS15 are unusual Byblis rorida forms that were found by my friend along the Gibb River Road, Kimberley, Western Australia. Both forms have short glands only and no long bristle-like glands on its sepals as found on typical Byblis rorida type forms. I have labeled both as CS14: Byblis rorida and CS15: Byblis rorida. I found DT14 among many progeny clones of CS14 which I have labeled DT14 "Byblis rorida ‘non-bristle, unique flowered form' has short glands only and no long bristle-like glands on its sepals as found on typical Byb
  5. 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
  6. Konnichiwa! new discovery????? I emailed Mr.Allen Lowrie in November, 2008. Because I had no idea why you mentioned, “a pulvinus on the pedicels of Byblis 'Goliath' is unusual". Also you thought the pulvinus was a cultivar trait of Byblis filifolia ICPS cultivar.Goliath. On October 29, 2008 You wrote on ICPS forum: reply 12 in http://icps.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=...amp;thread=2348 …But unfortunately, Byblis guehoi (which I think you were referring to) does not have a pulvinus on the pedicels such as Byblis 'Goliath' does,… On November 3, 2008 I wrote: reply 17 in http://icps.pr
  7. Dear Katie-san, Konnichiwa! I DO hope for your artificial pollinations succeed. Unfortunately, the descending pedicels do not always mean the success. A few years ago, I succeeded to obtain some seeds of Byblis species N.T. x Byblis guehoi. I do not sow the seed yet. Considering the chromosome number of Byblis guehoi, the F2 generation of this Hybrid might be very interesting. Byblis species N.T.: over all finer plant to 15cm very floriferous Litch field Northern Territory I do not know the chromosome number of this fantastic species though! Kind regards from the Far East
  8. Konnichiwa! Fernando-san visited Insectivorous Plant Society(Nippon Dental Univ.) on March 29, 2010. We spent happy time a little while ago. Dr. Kato & Dr. Hasebe (Fernando-san's ex-proffessors), Dr. Komiya, a few board members of IPS......talked about CPs, DNA and everything. Kind regards from the Far East Fernando-san investigated a Byblis specimen.
  9. Konnichiwa! Dear sativ-san & Dear Milos Sula-san, I agree with you in all your views. Dear Fernando-san, You made a few excellent replies to this thread. The 4 plants were taken last year. They were 5 months old after sowing. I did not use any growth control chemicals/hormones. After observing the clones, I believed they were same variation. commonly found and Nothing special. There was only one plant in each pot. At the same time, I did not believe that the 4 clones maintained "ICPS cultivar's status". Previously, on cp discussion group I wrote: 1)Advanced uniformity by sexual reproduc

  12. Dear Drosera5150-san, I am surprised that you are still claiming I use B-9 to grow my plants. What scientific evidence do you have to accuse me of using B-9? I am looking forward to seeing the Byblis plants that are treated with B-9 by German cp growers. To my knowledge B-9 causes the promotion of branching, an increase in flower number and dwarfing. However I believe their Byblis plants will not look like the Byblis plants in my photos because I never use B-9 or any growth control chemicals/hormones. The only chemical I use is GA3 for germination. Please see: http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/

  15. Dear JohnnyBlaze-san, Konnichiwa! I carried out another experiment that was suggested by Mr. Allen Lowrie. On May 19,2009; I put three Byblis plants (without roots) in a glass jar. I then added 80ml of water to the jar. I shook the bottle hard. I then sprayed the diluted Byblis mucus onto the grasshopper. 12 hours later the grasshopper's movements had slowed a little. The viscosity of diluted Byblis mucus is thick and it did not spray easily onto the grasshopper. On May 21,2009; In the morning, I put two Byblis plants (without roots) in the glass jar. I added 10ml of water to the jar. I
  16. Konnichiwa! After my previous report I did an additional “grasshopper as prey” experiment. This time I placed another grasshopper onto the Byblis foliage. It took 1 hour and 30 minutes until I could see that the grasshopper's movements had been slowed to the point that it was almost comatose. This showed positively that the sleepiness effect on the grasshopper was caused by its contact with the Byblis mucus. The first grasshopper has recovered considerably. The grasshopper seems not to have been suffocated by the closing of its air-breathing pores by Byblis mucus as I did not wash its air-br
  17. Subject: Byblis glandular mucus Sub title: could it contain a sleeping drug come anesthetizing agent; nerve immobilizing agent and/or an insecticide? Konnichiwa! I have been producing Byblis for the past ten years. In summer, to avoid the heat of the day, I often work at night under lights. My greenhouses are surrounded by rice fields. The harmful insect pest of the rice plant, Nephotettix cincticeps as well as many other insects are drawn to the lights in my Byblis greenhouse, where many of the insects of varying sizes are caught on the Byblis foliage. Some insects however, because of thei
  18. Konnichiwa! Mr. Allen Lowrie & Dr. John G. Conran described Byblis guehoi mega multi-branching habit in the wild in their paper. http://www.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au/__data/assets...el121023Low.pdf I have been growing Byblis guehoi since 2006. Byblis guehoi plants always branch in my cultivation. Check out my Byblis guehoi producing new additional growing points from the basal areas of the main stem in photos 15,16,17 & 18. This branching habit is normal for this species. Photo 15 & 16:This particular Byblis guehoi plant was sown in plug tray on February 25, 2009. The plant was transpla
  19. Konnichiwa Greg-san, Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful images. I like Byblis, too! What time did you sow the seeds and when were your images taken? Here are the photos of my plants for this year. They were sown on February 20, 2009. They were transplanted to the pots on April 8, 2009. I took the photos on April 14, 2009.

  20. Konnichiwa! I have just edited post#4. We will have the most suitable season for sowing tropical Byblis over the next few months in the northern hemisphere. I have a catalogue and updated list from Mr. Allen Lowrie. He is still distributing Byblis guehoi seed. He has many interesting Byblis variations on both his catalogue and updated list. See Byblis lists below. For example, Byblis species "Biota 367 plants match Bynoe's TYPE material coastal area a little way south of Kuri Bay, Kimberley". I was able to grow it for the first time last year. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of t
