    I just noticed 2 sprouts.....I dropped the whole container of seeds on the floor a couple weeks after sowing them so I didnt think I would get any! 1 has a pitcher and the other doesnt yet. Mine are on live sphagnum. I wondered if they were highlanders or lowlanders myself.

    They are slowly and painfully killing you.....did you know that?

    How brainwashed are you?

    I can't grow crap. After a few months of no sprouts and me struggling to keep the pot moist I just gave up. I don't have a humidifier or anything or a gigantic state of the arc greenhouse with multiple functions and chambers so I don't think it's possible for me.

    I can't even grow D. capensis from seed.

    I got some seeds from Tropics too, but not this cross. I didn't have any germination and just left the pot at my windowsill and mostly forgot about it. Until I had a surprise and noticed germination in mid April, of the Nepenthes splendiana x (spathulata x veitchii)
    This is how they were in late June (the photos were taken in a hurry, the cam was going to repair, dust in the sensor)





    Just let them be there and wait

    If you can't even grow that from seed...we need to have a long, long chat.

    I'm using the following items:

    Cut bottoms off distilled water jugs as a tray for the media.
    Plastic bags.

    I don't have anything yet, but I know there was a post recently about somebody also growing this way and had great results. Also read I_Pereira's post about her "negligence" growing conditions on the window sill. You don't need "gigantic state of teh arc greenhouse with multiple functions and chambers." You just need patience.

    I'm not really a fan of the bag method...blocks out too much light. Here's a thread taht will be of interest to whoever is trying to germinate nep seeds, especially if you are not having much luck:

    these are mine from tropics-



    my terrarium is massive humidity with tons of circulation... i never have to water my plants
    these look like they are gonna be really hairy pitchers =)
    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    OK, so how should we start this off?

    Funny, I can't grow D. capensis from seed, yet I can grow Cephalotus in a windowsill with a tattered up humidity dome I got from Wal-Mart and D. falconeri in a pickle jar in the same spot, and another petiolaris outside in full sun in Wisconsin and it still remains dewy and flowering.
