Byblis liniflora chlorosis

Recommended Posts

Hello,

What might cause chlorosis of B. liniflora? Is there any way to save my seedlings? I thought about using very weak solution of orchid fertilizer.

I keep my seedlings in a terrarium, temperatures are 30*C during day and 20*C at night. As a source of light I use 2x 32W T8 fluorscent tubes, one 15W compact megaman plant lamp and a southern windowsill (but it's built in a loggia type balcony). Soil is made with a peat and a silica sand, probably in 1:2 or 1:3 ratio (hard to say).

Best regards

Jakub

I do not like to ferlitizer byblis. I prefer to feed the leaves.

 

However byblis needs a lot of light, direct sunlight preferably.  I think that's the problem.

Maybe use some more sand in your media?

Yes, althoug can grow in peat , but i prefer add sand and perlite. In sphagnum dry 100% works well too.
