Byblis guehoi seeds

Recommended Posts

I read in those days from many Byblis guehoi farmers that this is not a self polinatated plants and it is needs another flowering plants for making seeds from it.

I did not know this and so it is from September that I use a diapason onto byblis flowers for self-polinated them. :wacko:

But actually I have two capsules of seeds that are present in the plant and for sure one of this has a seed in it (it is open and I can see it inside).

Is there any possibility that the seeds can germinate?

Thanks

My understanding is that they a treatment of Gibberellic Acid (GA3) to germinate.

About Byblis guehoi and Byblis 'Goliath',

They can produce seed by self-pollinating when their inbreeding degree are low (When the homogeneity of their genes is low). Of course the seed pods are smaller, the seeds are smaller and low quality. The generation established with the autogamy hardly produces seeds by the autogamy.

Some species(undescribed) were perfectly self-sterile from the beginning.

Many Byblis species(i.e. characterized by the flowers bearing anthers as long or longer than their supporting filaments) are allogamous plants. Allogamous doesn't mean an absolute self-sterile taxon. It simply means the degree of out breeding is high.

Kind regards from the Far East
