    Yeah, these really are glacially slow - slowest cactus species there is.

    So far these have been hard grown, without fertilizer, which could account for some of their smallness, well that and forgetting that I had them at the back of a table for a couple of years.

    Grafting and the application of ferts are very tempting, but ferts can distort the form shape and if the roots are lopped off in favor of a grafting stock, these plants will never be on their roots again, as they are practically impossible to root again.

    So, probably will just continue to be patient will these...for now.

    dvg, where here I am about to give up on nepenthes seed pots after a year, your dedication for 6 years to a pea is admirable.

    Don't give up on your Nepenthes pots there Thez - if they've sprouted and have stalled, just repot them and watch them take off in growth for you.

    Haha, I wish these tiny guys were the size of a pea, I measured them yesterday and they are between 3 to 3.5 mm in width and about 4 mm in height.

    With them growing on average 1 mm in diameter per year, hopefully in another 6 years, they'll be the size of a pea.
