    hi all, just wanted to share if anyone had experience raising neps seeds germinated with 2 or more varieties from one parent plant. This happened to the rafflesiana elongata seeds i collected and germinated 3 months ago. 2 weeks ago i saw some plants ( i counted to date are 5 young plants ) which germinated with slightly different structure-has longer stem., leaves are longer and slender.They are growing faster than the young raffs in the same container-1" as compare to raffs 1cm tall.But Raffs has put on extra leaves .I use pure NZ sphagnum moss,nothing esle was added. Could these be cross species.If so then i assume they can be gracilis and mirabilis or either one of them. Seeds were collected from Lundu where raffs,gracilis and mirabilis were growing together. Thanks for feedbacks in advance.

    Hi Robert,

    to my eyes these bigger seedlings aren't Nepenthes at all. Maybe you also collected something else?

    Cheers Joachim

    Yeah that does look like a common plant. All Neps I am aware of put on pitchers on the 3rd leaf or so, even when tiny.

    As mentioned above - the foreigner is clearly a monocot.

    I've had some strange grasses grow from using dried LFS moss.

    It looks like the plants I've seen that sprout from birdseed. Yours may be a bit small for that though.
