    My D. peltata are just starting to flower now. By far the easiest tuberous species. I keep my pots wet all year and seedlings are always popping up in my Utric plugs from dropped seed. They do go dormant for a couple months during the Summer but I suspect it is controlled more by daylength than temperature.

    I would hold the seed in the fridge until Fall.. is there a Fall in Singapore? At least with respect to shorter days? Mid 80s during the day and 60s at night would probably suffice just fine but not sure how they will respond if there is not alot of variation in daylength from Summer/Winter.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Thanks, jimscott.

    Tony, you mean they grow during shorter days? Hmmm... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img] I sowed the seeds and our days are getting brighter and warmer. Bad move it seems, but I will think of something. I can't pick up the seeds... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]
