    Pineapple, great to see results so fast! I sowed 6 types of seed in a setup similar to yours (less light) about 5 days ago. If all goes well, I'll pose pictures of my setup once germination starts!

    Just looking at the top picture... It looks like theres a grayish sprout on a seed about 1/3 of the way over at the very top. Perhaps that will grow into a green sprout?

    Can't really tell alot from the photo but they don't look right for Nepenthes sprouts. Fastest I have had some lowland seed sprout after a few weeks and highland a month to 2 months. But 9 days?? I doubt they are Nepenthes sprouts.

    Edit: the grayish stuff is mold
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    So what you mean to say is that I grew some mold and some weeds.

    Should I pluck them?

    i'd wait it out....Tony does have a point about super uber fast germination time, but usually the first seeds that pop up for me are the crabgrass type plants. i'd wait out until i see the first couple of true leaves (you dont really have anything to lose), and if they dont look anything like nep, leaves tweezer them out. your photos are out of focus, but see if there's a nearby nep seed coat---that would help verify things.

    Those look like grass or clover sprouts to me.
