    Easy Varieties From Seed

    What are some of the easier varieties to start from seed?

    I have no preferences other than easy ( will try others after some success), and something that will do well in a home once mature.

    I am still waiting at almost 10months on my first attempt of ~100 seeds of N. Thorelii x Raff.


    TIA

    N.ventricosa is easy to grow from seed and so is ampullaria.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    I have grown perhaps ten Nepenthes species and hybrids from seed over the years -- primarily highlanders; and none of them posed any real difficulty -- though some took several months to germinate (seven was about the longest in my experience). I recall having received seed over Christmas break, one year, while at college, and seeing tiny plantlets only by mid-June. By that point, I had almost tossed the pots.

    Of far more importance than any given Nepenthes species or hybrid, is the freshness of the seed. After only a few weeks, germination rates steeply decline . . .
