    N. raff Hybrid Seedlings

    Forgive me for forgetting who I got these from...(should've written it down >_<, but I at least wrote down what they are...

    These are approximately 2 month old seedlings of N. rafflesiana. The father plant could be... N. rafflesiana, N. bicalcarata, N. truncata, or N. alata. If you're the one that I got these seeds from, let us know cuz they're doing great!

    1st Seedling Spotted on 04/10/2007

    First up... a closeup!


    And... a closeup of one with weird (more mature?) growth..


    Lastly.. an overview of the whole batch.

    I'm so amazed by how simple it is to raise these guys! I just put them under lights and ignore them and they grow fine. I check on them maybe once every 2 weeks. Since they're in bags they don't really require watering either.

    You have them in bags? Have you had any problems with stale air? That is great! There are so many!

    Nope, no problems at all. I guess opening the bags every couple weeks or so kept the air fresh enough.

    I think they're a little crowded.. but I got so many seeds and I actually gave half of them to a friend and I STILL had that many. Pretty cool though. After they hit the one year mark I will have to separate them. They should be A LOT bigger then.. and also easier to handle.

    It was probably Tropics then. He is notorious for giving tons of seeds!

    How close to the lights are they?

    Yeah I was thinking it might've been him but I wasn't 100% positive.

    I'd say they're within 6 inches of the light.. probably about 5 inches away.

    Lookin' good!

    Strangly I had no germination from the seeds of the same offer, could of been from one of the few nights where it dipped into the high 40s/low 50s though.

    I thought it was Pyro that was giving away these?

    Yes, Pyro was the one who gave them away. I got a batch myself and mine look just like yours Chrono. I keep mine on my windowsill in a clear Rubbermaid tub covered with plastic wrap. Every day at 8PM I move them to my desk unwrap them and put them under my light until I go to sleep, then I cover them and put them on the window for the next day.

    Your germination rate seems like it was higher then mine; either that or I got less seed than you.
