    Nepenthes mirabilis <"var tricot">?

    Hello all!

    I got a nice little portion of the N. mirabilis seed that was offered via the ICPS and it has been by far the most productive Nepenthes seed I have ever received! I have been watching them all very closely and upon my inspection the other day I found this little guy.


    (plant located in between the two blue markers)



    Is it just me or does it appear that it has 3 cotyledons? The plant hasn't formed pitchers yet and I'm sure it is a N. mirabilis and not some weed. Each one of the three are all the same size so I don't think it is just a forked cotyledon and all the "leaves" are smaller overall in comparison to my other N. mirabilis seedlings.

    Should this be something to keep an eye on? If this is a mutation could it perhaps show some other interesting characteristics later on or is this just a common fluke? I am new to Nepenthes seed so forgive me if this is a stupid question haha.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Well darn... Here I was thinking I had something super. haha

    Regardless, I am ecstatic about the germination rate I've gotten with these! I just threw them on my normal CP mix and they went crazy (30+ seedlings). The truncata seeds on the other side of the pot still haven't done anything for me yet but I can't complain.

    My thorelii x ? even with a heat mat only yielded ~5 seedlings out of about 150 seeds... 0.o They are massive seedlings though...

    Oh well back to the growing tray...

    Thanks!

    After some time I think it is time for an update and a few questions. These two photos are of my pot of mirabilis and truncata seedlings. They have grown exponentially!





    Tricot has been lost in the chaos...

    When should I start thinning these guys?

    Thanks!

    Very cool J.P. . Lots of nice little babies you got there. I'm not sure when to start separating, but good luck with it.

    Woah. It's going to be a little difficult to separate those N. truncata seeds!
