    N. veitchii Bario HL Candy Striped seedlings

    Thought i'd share a couple pics of my seed grown N. veitchii Bario Highland Candy-Striped seedling babies, even though the pots are looking a bit unruly at the moment with all of the moss, grass, heather and what-not.

    This N. veitchii form, when mature, has squat, red ball-shaped pitchers, according to the fellow that sent me the seeds.

    The seeds were sown on June 22, 2010 in a seedling flat and then when that became overrun with moss, the seedlings were transplanted into 6" pots back on May 11, 2011.

    Four seedlings apiece were placed into each 6" pot, with one pot getting the largest of the seedlings at the time and the other pot receiving the smaller ones.

    Here is the pot with the smaller seedlings.



    And this is the pot that had the largest ones transplanted into it.



    The seedlings, for the most part, have grown quite well since last May and once again are in need of a repotting, but this time it will be into their own separate pots...

    ...and then hopefully they can all turn over a new leaf and do things up right in the new year...

    they look good. Starting to see larger red pitchers on my biggest SG veitchii HL. Can't wait for them to get as big as my K.

    Thanks guys, growing Neps from seed is so rewarding, especially with the surprises that can pop up among seedlings...

    The same seedlings grouped together after being repotted into 5" pots and fitted into a standard sized seedling flat.



    This should give them a little extra room to relax and stretch out those scramblin' viney parts.

    Thanks Dionae!

    This is the largest of this seedling batch, showing color in its leaves and boasting a newly opened pitcher.



    The newest pitcher is showing a couple of stripes, which could be a promising sign for the pitchers to follow on this plant...

    You seriously should give it a go there Rocketcaver...

    ...successfully growing Nepenthes from seed through to flowering adults is ultra-rewarding and firmly establishes a strong bond between you and your plants too!
