    Wrong thread. The seed you want to germinate will differ in requirements from species to species and genus to genus. The majority of seed is very easy to get to germinate.

    As for pitcher plants, there are 5 genera that can be considered pitcher plants. I'll assume you mean Sarracenia. If you do, cut a portion of the rhizome off, spray with a fungicide, and bury the bottom half including any roots in the substrate of your choice. I leave the top half exposed. You should get new crown growth in a few weeks.


    Or you could just wait and then seperate the crowns... that's the best way IMO.

    Welcome to Terraforums! I'm sure that sometime during the year there will be seed offerings as well.

    Welcome to the forums. Don't feel bad about not being able to get your Nep. seeds to sprout. I have tried several times and have not had a single seed sprout out of the many I have sown.

    Welcome! I am trying for the first time to sprout some neps from seed. There are quite a few members that are also trying to get some seeds to sprout. I think everyone is anxious and does not have the patience for the amount of time it sometimes takes... Keep us posted on how they do!

    Hey, I'm like 0 for 4 with Nep seeds. Sundew seeds are MUCH easier!
