    ???
    Are you telling me that to loose hopes I have to wait for so long? Are Nepenthes seeds not viable only for max 60 days after they have been collected from the plant?
    And how do you see by eye the seeds that are good and the ones that are no good?
    Color? Size or what?
    Thanks

    Mr.Aga in my experience keeping in normal room temp.in tropical condition seeds won't last 30 days.Fungi starts to attak and destroy them. It is best to keep tem in the fridge.

    You mean keep it for 60 days at home,or after sowing seeds for 60 days without germination seeds will be useless ?

    The northiana seeds i sow in late January only started to germinate late march. Now is June months i still see some started to appear.

    If fertilised seeds ripe naturally ( split open naturally ) then there is no reason they will not germinate if all the growing conditions are fulfulled.

    collected neps seeds while the capsules are still green or just started to turn brown,then dry under the sun,their viability is questionable. I have tried and the seeds never germinate. Anyone experience this?

    Hello rbjong,
    I just wanted to ask you how many time to wait after have sowed seeds.
    So...from what you have written...you recomend me not to throw away seeds that were already sowed after only 60 days,right?
    Thanks

    Mr Aga, germination depend on the conditions. No ,don't throw away the ungerminated seeds ,even after 60 days. They germinate at different rate.

    I have had seed germinate in 2 weeks. Of course they were fresh, only 5 days since dispersion. The seed was N. mirabilis x coccinea from local grower.

    Hello to all!
    After long time I wanted to show all how my Nepenthes seed looks like!
    I have another plant...that is not so fast. Another died alone without any reason.
    Managing little seedlings is reallly delicate!
    I have noticed that there are between the same seedlings..some plants that grow much faster than others...!
    I remember you all that this is a ventrata crossed with ventricosa pollen!
    Bye!
