if you have b.linifora, you can divide them into two batch, one without bleaching another one with bleaching, here the trick 1)bleaching seeds put the seeds into bleach and water with the ratio 1:9, use something to mix them from time to time, on the first minutes, you will see some black colour stuff dissolving into the solution, will appear like a black tail, keep it in the solution but make sure you take it out before 6hours, when you take it out, you should see them become white or got some black colour, them wash them carefully with pure water(to wash the bleach away) and sow them on the sphagnum moss
2)unbleach seeds put the seeds on water, you will notice that they are floating, then , put a touch of detergent and you will see them sink, after that, pour out the solution and wash the seeds(to remove detergent) and sow them
these are the ways that i had use, but as far as i can see, there is no difference, even some claim that seeds with treatment will have higher germination rate, for me, the worst part is to take care of them for the first few months, they are fragile and easily die.....i list 99% of them, now still having one bylis struggling to suvive ;D ;D

what it will grow in soil? sorry, did not get your point, i suggest you wan to ask what will come out first, it will be the roots, follow by dewy stem, then keep growing and growing until got flowers come out and boon, a tons of seeds
From time to grow from seeds depends on the environment, usually it will be mature before 6months and bloom before that....
Age of byvlis a few years? it is anual plant, so it might die after blooming...

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.

vidyut: hey mylesg. glad to hear that. Love this forum. Facebook can't organize knowledge like this. Will participate as much as I can.

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
