    Time is important . I don't think I would see germination in three weeks...
    Seed started germinating about 3 months or so after I planted. I planted in november 2011 they started in feb-March 2012


    and yes that pot was over seeded. I will pay the consequences in months to come....

    Also dunno about LL conditions for this one to germinate. I am seeing the best germinating where temps are in the 80s. In the petiolaris sundew and sarracenia germination chambers where temps reach over 100 F I am not seeing any germination. Guessing max temp might be in the mid 90s if i had to guess above that dead seeds.

    have not tried nep seeds yet.
    Trichloroisocyanuric or NaDCC is my favor disinfectant too. it's less phytotoxic to plant cells. I use it for orchid, CPs and other vegetable seeds as well as explants with minimum contamination.

    My biggest batch of these were from seeds I planted because nobody claimed them in the SASE I did...they were 2 months old....almost all came up...oh dear.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    In ex-vitro it takes about 4 weeks for the first round. The second round takes longer about 6 weeks and 8 weeks or more in vitro. There are more nutrient in vitro why does it take longer? I have no idea. May be my media is not good for Nep and I will change it.

    Nice seedlings!!

    I had problem with my n. ramispina seeds.
    I got only 2 seedlings for 10 seeds.
    The seedlings have 2 months old and they have only one microscopic pitcher.
