    Update on sprouting trays finally!

    So, here's what's become of my tray setup:



    As you can see, nothing has sprouted except moss and sedge ;_;



    Wait, hold on, what's that?





    Is that what I think it is!? Do my eyes decieve me?

    And... WHAT DO I DO NOW!?

    Your eyes decieve you.


    Just kidding. It might be, though it just looks like 1 half of a seedling. You'ld need to check for a whole seedling.

    How's that? You're talking to someone who's never even grown a fast plant, much less a nep. I wasn't aware 'half seedlings' were even possible?

    I assume it's a nep just because it's the only thing sprouting that doesn't look like LFS or chives.

    P.S. I still have tray covers on 24/7, some guides say take them off after you get a sprout, should I?

    He means it looks like only half of the seedling is showing and you should check if the other half is covered by the moss

    I peeked at it a bit, just a stem going down to what I would say is the roots for about 3mm.

    There's a tiny set of leaves emerging in between the two in the picture, the thing has grown noticeably since this morning!

    Congradulations on getting a sprout. How many seeds did you sow?

    I always find it interesting how nepenthes seeds all germinate at such different times, even when they are from the same batch. And, just for the record, a few months ago a sowed some nepenthes seeds, and only had 1 out of the whole lot germinate. 1 stinking plant. I'm sure you'll get more then that though. Congrats.
