    Hey Lois,
    It took me about 2 months, also. I started with about half the seed produced. I have a female ventricosa that made sort of a small-ish flower soon after I got it, and used pollen from a truncata. I was skeptical that the seed pods were viable, and am happy to have even one sprout.

    Oh, and I'll try to get a new pic of the Predator. I'm still figuring out this crazy macro lens, and really, really need a tripod for these things.

    Well, I think there may still be hope for a couple of more seedlings. I have had more sprout over the past 2 weeks. They are jest plain venticosa. But, I am so delighted I was able tpget something to sprout also.

    Yep. I know what you mean still working with that microlens issue, myself. I had it figured out better on my old camera , which I lost during a bog slogging expedition to Albion.
    The new camera is supposed to keep the image still,Ha I say.LOL

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?

    You know A mono pod would be easier to move around than a tripod, unless you really want a tripod.

    cute Nepenthes!

    Wow...happy to see that I am not the only one who got seedlings from seeds of nepenthes!
    As you can see on some topics in this forum....I got a couple of little plants from seeds of Nepenthes [ ventricosa x alata ] [ ventricosa ].
    Fine!
    Frow where did you get the truncata pollen? From your own plants or from somewhere else?

    Bye!

    Wow! Mr Aga, your pics are great! It's very satisfying growing neps from seed, considering how long it takes.

    I got truncata pollen from Pyro, who got it from someone else. Whoever that was, thanks! In addition to the N. ventricosa x truncata, I was able to get a bunch of sprouts of N. (thorelii x aristolochioides) x truncata, as my thorelii x aristo was also flowering.

    Wish I could get some seeds. That would be fun to try. Seeds for a hamata would be the best.
