    Here's a pic of my current Nepenthes shelf:



    A: Lowland tanks
    B: Nepenthes seed starting shelf & most of my spray bottle collection for various solutions
    C: Highland chamber & a 10 gallon with a couple unhappy giant raffs in it

    N. veitchii "pink" starting to develop some striping on the peristome, unlike most N. veitchii this form has tall skinny pitchers instead of short & fat




    Some assorted Nepenthes seedlings hardening off after transplanting, most of the N. neoguineensis "B" (brown) didn't survive moving.


    N. bicalcarata a baby plant still has nice fangs



    N. bellii x northiana this is the first pitcher to finally open on this hybrid which, when it gets going creates some pretty neat miniature N. northiana pitchers, this pitcher isn't quite there yet but it's just the first after a long battle to save it so I'm calling it a victory! LOL


    Here you can see the clean leaves of this hybrid (no weird variegation) and a new developing pitcher next to a N. Black Knight

    This is how this hybrid arrived!



    And then a few days after arrival!


    Here's a few of my weird succulents:

    Pseudolithos migiurtinus (grows as a round ball)



    Pseudolithos cubiformis (grows as a pyramidal/square shape)


    Pseudolithos dodsonia grows shaped like poop I guess!



    Thanks for looking!

    And that Pseudolithos migiurtinus is a total trip.

    Nice set up swords!

    Looks like your nep seeds are germinated with just reflected light from your other lights, correct? When do you move them to more normal lighting?

    Thanks!

    They are just T5HO fixtures who need their tubes replaced.

    Yeah, I don't germinate Nep seeds under light anymore because the algae and molds and whatever just goes wild while the seeds are deciding on whether they will germinate or not. Then when they do germinate they end up germinating on a slimey substrate. This way they start on clean milled LFS. I germinate in tubs then move to seedling trays when they get a few leaves. Sometimes I jump the gun like with the N. neoguineensis, I shoulda waited... I move them to the outside "bleed light" on the in front of the LL tanks once I see them germinating so the germinated seedlings don't have to struggle.

    Thanks for the info swords, trying my first sets of nep seeds this week. Temps for highlander seeds? Warm days, cool nights or just normal highland temps?

    Same temps as for lowlanders seems to yield about the same results, it's all down to how viable the seed is if it's skinny and looks pretty much like beard trimmings...
    Hope for seed with fat middles that haven't been squished flat .
