    Very nice! I assume that you have the N. Sibuyanensis developing pitcher on the moss to keep it moist?

    N. sibyuanesis has burrowing tendrils, meaning they like to stretch down and go underneath the soil a little before inflating, without any solid ground under the tendrils, Ive observed them twisting and curling back upwards and then eventually shriveling up.
    With this moss here however, the tendrils stop travelling around and start inflating very soon after making contact with the moss.

    Its a species dependant thing, all my other plants are perfectly happy to inflate floating pitchers.

    Are you fertilizing the Sarracenia seedlings ? Osmocote usually sends them blasting off for me.

    I have not, but assuming the circumstances its a bit odd they wont grow.. they have fresh media, plenty of humidity and light ect.

    Ill see about getting some fertilizer.

    Might need more sun. I have a hard time with sarracenia too because my yard is light starved,
    and even under artificial lights they dont seem to take off much. I think they demand full sun.

    It's normal to see color in seedlings. How deep is that container? Mine don't grow if I don't give them enough space to root well. Maxsea as a foliar spray should help too.
