    Superb! I'm envious that you could carry out tissue culture on nepenthes seeds especially macrophylla......keep us updated!

    Fantastic David. Will you ever be opening a store and directly selling these rare plants? We really need much needed refresh of the macrophylla and heli clones.

    Here are two shots of some of my conventionally grown "controls" that I like to keep on hand, having just emerged from their seed coats days ago; and almost two months later than their counterparts -- both planted within a day of one another -- in aseptic media . . .

    Congrats! Quick question...do your seeds turn black in vitro or am I just killing them?

    Thanks . . .

    Are you asking about the seed coat or a seedling plant?
    If it is the particular seed, Nepenthes species vary in size and color a great deal; if seedlings are involved, either the media is far too concentrated; the pH is way off; or the temperatures have been kept above 25˚ C for a sustained period of time . . .

    Thanks! I'm talking about the seed coat. Havent had any nepenthes germinate yet but i'm hoping soon.

    Be very patient with them. Depending upon the species, it can take a couple of weeks, to months for germination to occur. The shortest period, in my experience, was fifteen days for Nepenthes lowii; and the longest, eighteen months for some N. hamata stragglers (though the first of that batch germinated within four weeks). Individual seed will often germinate much later than others in the same flask or compost . . .
