    I'm used to plucking a never-ending invasion of Drosera Capensis seedlings from the pots of just about every plant growing in a 50 metre radius of my house.

    But I was weeding my Neps in the greenhouse yesterday, and spotted a couple of unexpected hitchhikers - self-sown Nepenthes seedlings. By the look of them, they're ventricosa, probably from some seeds from a pod that was not properly shaken out, or that popped before I could harvest them. Anyway, at least I know conditions must be OK for my plants...
