    Nepenthes hamata seedling . . .

    Here is just one example from a March 2009 crop of Nepenthes hamata seeds from Queensland, which, initially, were germinated in plugs of milled sphagnum moss and horticultural sand (a great mix to avoid "damping off" disease from Phtophthora and Pythium fungi) and later replanted -- plug and all -- in a compost of live sphagnum, pumice, perlite, and charcoal. Half of the batch had been treated with dilute GA3 (gibberllic acid) to encourage germination of potentially valuable and stubborn seeds, the balance allowed to sprout on their own. There was little difference in terms of germination rate this time around; though that is not always the case with highland Nepenthes . . .
