  1. Dear Andreas-san & Dear Fernando-san, Konnichiwa! WOW..... JUST.......WOW Kind regards from the Far East
  2. 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/
  3. Dear henry-san, Konnichiwa! I think your plants are Byblis guehoi. Kind regards from the Far East
  4. Dear Marcel-san, Konnichiwa! Domo Arigatou Gozaimasu! (=Thank you very much!) Here are the tropical Byblis species photos used for this experiment. Photo 24: Photo 25: Kind regards from the Far East photo links changed (same photos): 2014/11/29
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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. Photo 11: Byblis guehoi The glands of Byblis guehoi are very dense, please see the photos 1 &2 in http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=30789.

  10. 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

Byblis guehoi (pronounced gay-ho-eye) (pronounced and rhymes with Hay) This species is already in culture. photo 1:Byblis guehoi photo 2:Byblis guehoi photo 3:Byblis guehoi photo 4:Byblis guehoi photo 5:right Byblis guehoi photo 6:left Byblis species giant clone from Pago region, right Byblis guehoi There was one plant in each pot.
