    @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!

    What I mean is that I really don't have the equipment and $ to devote to them. I grow all the other major categories of CP's: VFT's. Sarracenias, butterworts, bladderworts, and sundews. I went from trying to have 'one of everything' to growing what I can, successfully. Always looking for trades, though...

    Ah.. Yea, that would suck. But if all goes well with my plants, I definitely wouldn't mind trades.

    On a side note... My drosera seeds started sprouting too! So far Burmannii for sure, and this tropical + subtropical mix I got. There's a lot sprouting from the mix, but just one or two in the burmannii pot. They're SO tiny...!
