    Yeah. Lots of light, high humidity, watch for fungus, and same conditions as adult nepenthes otherwise except keep the soil a little more moist.
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Everything said here, but I would use a peat/sand mix to ensure that the seeds have good contact with the medium. I would also highly recommend watering from the bottom, with occasional misting.

    Overall, they are not very hard to germinate and grow, but patience is a necessity.

    just got the seeds, thanks !!! I've been waiting to buy a ventricosa and maxima, now i have both in one ^_^. It's as if you read my mind, esp since I just bought 4 new nepenthes and was wondering if i should get one with Ventricosa x maxima.

    with the amount of seeds you gave me, how many pots should I have for them?

    As many as it takes to get seeds lying flat against the media without touching each other much, especially not the center of the seeds.
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly
