    I know, I should have waited until April 1st.
    They are N.thorelii female and either N.thorelii, kuchingensis, or gentle male.
    They could be a mix of hybreds. They were a freebie from wanakorn in Bangkok on another board.

    I got some of those seeds too! Glad to see someone else is having some luck! How many did you get to germinate total? Only 5 sprouted for me...
    Trying to rebuild. Feel free to PM me with questions.

    I got about a 50% germination rate. There was nearly 200 seed in my pack,
    so I sowed about 60 of them and then gave away 2 packs of about 60 seeds each on this board.

    Wow! Cool pic's! Looks like there out in the wild. Congrats on your high success rate! I would love to try my hand at starting some one day. I am still learning about these amazing plants, and was wondering as to how you tell which ones are male & female at such an early stage of development? Thanks for sharing!

    you cant you can only tell when they flower. supposedly there are some little characteristics on plants that you can tell if they are male or female before they flower. though...its never been proven and only been based on one nepenthes. N. mirabilis.

    looking good! my splendiana x truncata seedlings have really big pitchers too!
