    Oh yah, 2 Northern purple pitchure seeds sprouted! Only took me since October to get them to do it but I did (2 out of 100 seeds messed with total, 2 out of 50 seeds in last ditch effort).

    In short, I'm happy.

    I'd also like to thank these two seeds for staying alive so that I could sprout them as the seed I got is now (ballpark) 3 years old and has travled from person to person during that time. Oh yah, and the person who sent me the seed, thanks to you too, lol!

    A note on seedlings, wow, them funny lookin buggers. I think they could eat my sundew seedlings, lol. It's so cool how the seed is stuck on top of the leaflets still.

    Edit: Er, uh... When does one transplant Pitcher plants? These babies are my first and the last thing I want to do is kill them o_O

    Hi Darcie,
    Welcome back, by the way!

    In my (limmited) experience with sar seedlings, they don't grow too fast at first. I have some seedlings that sprouted back in...oh....September? October? Something like that. They're still barley an inch tall! They have some nice, sturdy mini-pitchers, but they just haven't had that growth explosion I was expecting. So, in short, I guess you have a while before re-potting is an issue.
