I bought some nepenthes seeds from a couple ebay sellers. I'll let you know how germination goes. I think a pod has around 50 seeds but i'm not positive.
The seller I linked to, and Paul named, does combine shipping. As many as you want for $3 US.
I found four that I like appearance-wise, but I only want to buy three. Which of these would you exclude and why? Which one is the most difficult to grow?

N. tentaculata: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Nepenthes-Ten...#ht_500wt_1076
They all look like easy to grow species...if your feeling confident then Id get them all

oh, and btw, a pod can have 40-120 seeds
In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
The first three if it was me but I already ordered tentaculata.
Wish I had that kind of room.
I'll probably end up selling a few locally or giving them to neighbors/friends/family.

I got a little carried away and ended up ordering 6 pods...
N. Adrianii - 1 pod
N. Ramispina - 1 pod
N. Tentaculata - 1 pod
N. Glabrata - 1 pod
N. Gymnamphora - 2 pods
When I receive the order, how should I open the pods? Do I just pull them open? Are the seeds inside ready to go straight into a peat/sand mixture?
Thanks for all the help everyone!
