    Madagascarius?

    Hey so i ordered a few plants umm almost a month ago. Anyways it included a free pack of nepenthes seeds I believe it was Madagascar something. I plopped the seeds in a pot of good soil and they haven't grown. It's been two weeks and I don't see any signs of growth. Are they dead?

    Don't give up! Nep seeds can take awhile, sometimes months. I think madagascar...however the name is, is a lowlander. Although, I've never grown neps from seed, so I can't really help.

    Now when you say good soil... you mean?

    Just keep them evenly moist. Depending on how fresh they are they could be past their prime. But I find the most important thing is seed to substrate connection. These are not my words but the seed's connection with the "soil" is really important.
    Trying to rebuild. Feel free to PM me with questions.

    From what you said, it sounds like you might have buried them? It is better if they are sown directly on the substrates surface, and kept warm and moist. They can also take a long time to germinate, especially if they weren't exactly fresh.

    There are only 2 infinite things... the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not too sure about the universe.

    Speaking from experience again dear boy? LOL! I've wondered why the last few times we spoke...this evening in fact..that you haven't spoken any latin plant names to me. It's just as well....isn't it?
