    My goal with my nep collection is to own every nep cultivar/variety in cultivation. I think the next few I am gonna get are Cantley's Red, Borneo Sunset, Harlequin, and the Giant clone. Thanks everyone considering I just got most of these recently or under 6 months I think I'm gonna have a pretty neat collection in a year or two once everything puts on some size. What I find most interesting is that I'm growing plants like N. ramispina, N. alba, and N. glabrata next to ultra lowlanders like bellii and they're all pitchering and producing leaves like crazy go figure. Guess I've got a green thumb

    mcmcnair, i see two possibilities for your success...
    1) all your plants are young and havent developed their specific range requirements just yet
    OR
    2) you gots the magic window

    most are pretty young, but no windows for me just artificial lights but lets hope for the latter instead of they havn't developed their range requirements yet

    Yesterday I received in the mail my first Nepenthes seeds. I got three forms of N. ampullaria (Red with green peristome, Hot Lips, and Red with dark spots), N. nigra Dark, N. nigra green (Probably tentaculata), and N. inermis. Here are some photos:

    Hope they work out for you! My nigra seeds never did sprout, but I had good luck with some of the others.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    I hope you got your seeds from one of the reputable collectors. One of the high profile merchants sells seed that is often too old to germinate or has been stored refrigerated, and germination is either minimal or non-existent.

    I assume I got them from a reputable source I dont know how to tell if they're reputable or not. I asked around to see who people have gotten seeds from and this was the guy most people recommended.
