    Trading for ten seeds is pretty weird (thats like eating ten pieces of popcorn), but if you watch the PPT forum, people give them away often for the cost of postage.

    You're not going to find N. glabrata, N. talangensis or N. villosa seed. N. fusca will be hard to find but not impossible.

    Villosa is very demanding and likes very solid stable cool conditions. Large plants of nepenthes villosa are very rare. One thing you have to understand about nepenthes is that to create seed you need male and female plants and the seed has a short shelf life if it is more than a few weeks old it might not sprout. For nepenthes I recommend nepenthes ventricosa x maxima it is also called nepenthe x 'Red Leopard' it is a easy to grow beautiful hybrid I will show you a photo but don't ask me for it since it was my first nepenthes and I don't have any extras.

    It's probably not necessary to post after your pictures for people not ask for it.

    cause seeds from any of them are unheard of in cultivation. talangensis will be the easier of the 3 to find... but thats only because there are male and female plants in cultivation. the odds there are pure seed going around is HIGHLY unlikey. plus the "normal" form is now extinct in the wild after the Mt. Talang eruption a few years ago. glabrata im unsure of the cultivated plants genders. and its also a touchy plant for many people to grow. if you want villosa seed, then go to Mt. Kinabalu. thats the ONLY place youll find those.

    I would stick to certain lowland neps into lower intermediates, and hybrids would fair much better being they are much more vigorous.

    If you're interested in Nepenthes seeds, try eBay, you'd be amazed what you'll find. I've managed to get seeds of many plants there including N globosa, N ampullaria, N thoreli, N mirabilis, N reiwardtiana, N neoguineensis, N maxima, and N bicalcarata. Of course, there is no guarantee that they are not hybrid seeds, but I'll take my chances. They are usually not cheap, however.
