    N. Dubia seadlings

    Hi. These were planted 5/5/2012 and started poping up about 2 weeks ago. Have 9 that have started growing so far.
    They are growing under Fluro 4 x 36w on timer 18hours a day on time.

    Now I have them started what should I do? leave them as they are untill they get bigger?

    What temperature should I be looking for?

    Congratulations; you must have some fresh seed on hand -- and good luck with them down the line. You'll likely experience sprouting for months to come, if my trays are any indication.

    I have found that that species benefits from a good amount of light, since it occurs around 2000 meters in the wild . . .

    awesome news!!! i have some dubia seeds that were planted a week back. really hope to be seein lil green sprouts like you soon!

    i think you want to leave them in the same conditions till they get bigger. you can bring the light down to the 14 hour a day nep standard.

    Thanks. I was happy to see them so quick. I have N. singalana, N. jamban and N. izumiae growing in the same place but none have started. Do they need different conditions or just the luck of the game?

    All of them can take a while; Nepenthes does everything in its own time . . .
