    Yes, nep seed can germinate from nothing one day to tons the next, I spray mine every few days with distilled water and superthrive until they germinate. seems to help.


    And BTW wow Nep Gracilis was here!

    Hey! You're nice Mostly admiring, but I really should make a thread in the trading area. They look reeeally good though, and I can't wait for updates on these.. love seedling update threads. Especially on baby truncatas!

    Understood. I'll make another update once they have some more interesting growth.

    This is the oldest seedling. I just took it out and potted it in a tiny pot.


    Oldest Truncata Seedling moved by Thagirion3, on Flickr

    The media is 1 part peat 2 parts milled sphagnum 3 perlite top dressed with milled sphag and the substrate the seedling was on lifted right out with a spoon so as to not disturbe the roots. Spryed and bagged with distilled water and put under lights. I'm guessing leave it bagged one week perhaps then slowly make holes in the bag over time to acclimate it to room humidity? I've never raised baby nepenthes so if I'm doing anything wrong would like to know. Thanks. And yes first pitcher! Very excited.

    BTW, that pot came in one of those little kids grow greenhouses for gourds. Would love to get more of those tiny pots but don't know where without buying more of these kits.
