    Hi all,
    I planted some D. capensis seed (they're the little black things about a millimeter long or less right?) a few weeks ago, and i am seeing nothing at all rise out of the soil. How long does it take for these to germinate? I have heard it takes as little as one week, but this is the 5th week, and i'm getting a bit worried, can anyone help?

    Hey Tuna, what are your conditions?
    The mind is like a parachute, it only works when it's open.

    My greenhouse has total full sun. It gets mid 80s in the day, and down in to the low 60s at night. It has high humidity for Nepenthes, around 80% at night, and 60% in the day, i think i might see some itty bitty tiny almost unnoticeable seedlings popping out, or maybe it's just sphagnum.

    Use a magnifier to see them better, to be sure.

    I don't have a magnifying glass, i'll buy one tomorrow. I would love it if they were, they would be my first seeds germinated.
