    Nepenthes hamata: 2011 seedlings . . .

    Here are a few seedlings which germinated in mid-January. They were planted in a compost of milled sphagnum and rinsed quartz -- horticultural -- sand. I've attempted live moss and every conceivable Nepenthes mix but have returned to this old stalwart . . .

    Congrats, interesting area of the "pot" for them to decide to sprout up. Should be a fairly nervous repotting when time comes

    Nepenthes101 had recommended me just pure milled sphagnum as media, and I was lucky enough to have quite a few seeds germinate my first try out.

    Congratulations in your seed as well. They sprouted in a number of other "wells" in the germination tray as well; and I usually don't replant them for several months -- up to a year. It is a simple task then . . .
