    N. mirabilis seedlings

    I was going to post this in with the other seedling pictures, but that was the ICPS N. truncata seeds and didn't want to get them confused as people post updates over there. Here are my N. mirabilis seedlings that are starting to make their first protopitchers:







    Hope everyone out there growing from seeds is having good luck!

    When my stuff dried out, I think it killed the chance of having any germination lol. Someone here was nice enough to send me some seedlings though. They look about exactly the same as yours, maybe like....0.01mm bigger lol

    lol. I guess I'll have to prematurely fertilize to keep up with the pace!

    What do you mean "prematurely"? I fertilize before they even germinate, but shhhh that's a secret....

    I got the local grocery store to donate some of those plastic containers on the "make your own salad" bars. I microwaved the peat. The soil mix is peat, perlite, vermiculite, and orchid bark. There is some light blockage because of the plastic lid to the salad container but I have it practically touching the lights.

    I sowed these on 12/16/07 and noticed germination around 1/6/08.

    I just recently got some of that seed from ICPS and 2 tiny little sprouts are popping their way out. No luck on the truncata seed from them though... Muy congrats!
    Trying to rebuild. Feel free to PM me with questions.
