    Very cool! I bet for the one on the center!
    And btw, could you please tell us what are your germinating conditions for this guys? Any special care or something? I'm wondering on your temps...

    Since you asked the question, I would assume you likely know the answer. Which leads to what I would really like to know and that is: How can you tell from a batch of seedlings which ones are likely female?

    I was just being facetious, since the only feasible way of determining gender of Nepenthes, is to wait for them to produce a flower -- many years down the line . . .

    Ah, LOL.

    I was hoping you knew of some fairly reliable way to determine sex based on size or characteristics of a newly germinated seedling. That would be useful.

    Sorry to spoil the fun.

    Here is a shot of four monstrously-huge Nepenthes seedlings, some seven months after the first posting -- and approaching one year of age. I "flasked" quite a few seeds back in December of 2011; and it will be interesting to see whether they will outstrip the growth of those grown conventionally . . .
