    Seedlings or Weeds?

    I was one of the lucky people who got some N. Splendiana x Mixta seeds from Tropics several weeks ago and I am rather excited because I think I have germination. I don’t want to be too excited and then find out that what I thought was nep seedlings actually are just some ol’ weed since this is my first attempt at growing neps from seeds so I’ve included pics to check and see if some other experienced growers can confirm that this is what young nep seedlings do or do not actually look like.

    After staring at my pots for a while I think I can trace each seedling back to a seed case that it emerged from so I am pretty sure these are nep seedlings but before I celebrate I wanted to double check with the experts so I don’t end up pampering weeds like royalty only to be really disappointed.










    Here is a teeny spot of green just starting to bend out of the middle “eye” of the horizontal seed in the middle of the pic (if you really squint).

    Seedlings
    The first two leaves are pitcher-less the next leave will be a small pitcher(pin head).
