Hooray! Congrats! When I sprouted my first CPs earlier this year I was so excited!
@uphwiz: Ty! I just found another vft seed sprout today!
@Tony Paroubek: Damn, maybe that sister really did mess with my plants. Or maybe it's a stray seed from the dried long fiber sphag? I'm now wondering what that really is... Well, on the plus side, I know the VFTs are infact VFTs because they still have their seed coats on their little heads. Hopefully they all sprout sooner than later. Ty for your insights!
Ah good deal then on the VFT! If you can still see the Nep seeds then you will also see the seedlings emerge from them as well when they finally do. It should be pretty evident when it happens. Probably just a random weed seed from the Sphag. Although it sort of reminds me of a basil sprout ;>
Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
@lil hokie: Yay! Ty!! I feel like I can burst. Hahaha! My morning routines are now like: 1. wake up, 2. rush to trays and check for new seedlings, 3. either scream in excitement from more sprouts/ growths or get disappointed, 4. brush teeth, 5. double check again, 6. wash face, 7. maybe third time's the charm, 8. get yelled at and reluctantly get to work
@Tony Paroubek: T_T Actually, the sad part is how I DO have basil seeds laying around downstairs because I was planting them too... But my room is upstairs so I didn't think that'd be it. Darn that sneaky basil! Well... I'll still let it grow. Hopefully it'll pity me and flip its genetic code around and become a nep.
Oddly enough, I do have some GA3 in the butter keeper...
@jimscott: I believe this calls for more experimentation!
@lil hokie: Hahaha! I'm trying to stop myself from doing this, but it's so hard. I improved a bit after I found another "sprout" in my drosera tray.. which looked exactly like the one in my nepenthes tray: aka another weed. Sigh, stupid weed seeds. Ruining all the excitement of seeding green for me.
Edit: On the plus side, about 7-8 vft seeds have germinated now.
Someday... I've kinda given up on Nepenthes in general.
Nice!! I'm waiting on some Sarracenia seeds to stratify, so I'm just as excited as you are
@jimscott: Pish posh! Never give up, never surrender! The buzz lightyear's way.
@Fish n Plants: Actually.. talking about sarracenia seeds... 4 of mine sprouted out of like 10-12 seeds. It's only sarracenia purpurea though. I think it's Northern type. Nothing awesome and fancy... but I'm glad it sprouted! I really hope others pick up pace. I thought it was weed at first like the random weeds I've been seeing in my pots, but then I saw the seed shell still on its head and went YAY! All the sprouts look the same so far.. I'll definitely post pictures up later! Keep me updated on how your's go too!
