    Live sphagnum can be a real problem with seedlings because it can out grow and smother them. Peat/perlite mixes work best for me.

    of the thousands of nepenthes seed ive gotten.... so far ive only germinated a few on the live stuff. everything else molds.... i had to constantly cut back the moss and that was the only downside.

    My best results have come from milled (blender) LFS that I then microwaved to a boiling point (to kill EVERYTHING) for at least one full minute of boiling. STERILE.

    Obviously you have to cool it off before you sow....
