    That is a beauty for sure. My biggest seedling from seed collected from a green peristomed plant, is starting to show stripes. It seems that this trait is wide spread in the N. veitchii population in Bario.

    Regards,

    Christer

    Thanks Christer,

    I'd love to see some pics of your striped seedlings and your green peristomed seedlings, if you get a chance to post some of those babies.

    regards,

    Doug

    Hey dvg, absolutely wonderful seedlings. I'm just about to sow some Veitchii seeds so I'm wondering if there's a medium or anything you'd recommend, wouldn't want to make a mistake.

    Thanks Maxima,

    Growers have success with any number of seedling mixtures.

    I prefer a 50:50 mix of peat and coarse sand.

    The peat and sand both get rinsed a couple of times, and i find that the rinsing removes the dust from the sand and that the peat has less green slime growing over it in time.

    Very nice indeed, dvg! The "bario" forms of veitchii, are one of the most beautiful Nepenthes, IMHO.

    Hi Doug,

    Here are some of them:

    Biggest "green peristome" in a 13 cm (5.1 inch) pot. As can be seen there is big improvement in peristome width with the newly opened pitcher.



    My "striped peristome" seedling pot, the biggest is around 7 cm (not quite 3 inches).



    My runts of the litter "green peristome", which responded very well to being repotted this spring, biggest seedling here 4 cm (1.5 inches). I have few specimens in other pots going from 5 cm to 8 cm.



    Regards,

    Christer

    All of your seedlings are very healthy looking Christer.

    I too have found that these seedling take a huge jump in growth soon after a fresh repotting.

    Best of luck with growing yours out!
