    a mix of 1/2 sphagnum peat moss to 1/2 sand works very well for most dews, including capensis. Good luck on that sundew jungle, I've considered doing something like that but then got lazy or lost interest.
    Your Math is off. It'd be 100 cents = 1 dollar, 100 dollars = 1,000 cents and there is 1,000 D. capensis seeds.

    Lol, where would you put them all? Turn your entire backyard into a swamp, then they'll flower, the swamp will grow, the D. capensis will suck you in as you die in their grasp and the entire world becomes D. capensis AND THEY FORM INTO A HUGE MASS LIFE FORM AND KILL US ALL AFTER DIGESTING OUR INTERNAL ORGANS!!!!!!!!

    My imagination got the best of me, sorry.

    And of course he turns it into a capensis bog and the neighborhood pets began disappearing....

    1000 cents is 10 dollars. 100 would be 10,000 cents. Yeah... MY math is off...

    I think there's a lot to be said for putting them all in a 2 inch pot and seeing what happens.

    Even if we manage to get all the math correct you will still lose money on shipping at a penny a piece!

    oh yeah... then just wait another generation and get 1,000,000 seeds and sell them in 10,000 packs of 100 for 1 cent each seed, a dollar per pack. At a penny shipping, you'll get 990,000 cents, which is 9,990 dollars. That's enough to buy a large Nepenthes collection. Or a small one if you want all lingulatas. Or better yet, use all the money to buy more capensis from Andrew's store.
