    i moved half the seeds to my home terrarium its about ten or more degrees higher day and night lets see what happens, i am seeing some green on one of the seeds but i cant tell for sure if its the seed opening or not , ill update in a few days.
    my luck its probably the sphag reviving , though it was dead dried sphag and o baked all media at 475 degrees in the oven for 30 min.

    Good luck, upwhiz!

    I went to look at the N. attenboroughii seeds in TC and I see this almost 4 weeks after first signs of germination in compost.




    A bit off topic but my N. lowii (TrusMadi) also germinated in vitro about 2 weeks after the ones in compost.

    do you think the in vitro sprouts will speed past the ones in compost? growth rate is accelerated in culture, right?

    I would assume so since they are in nutrient rich media and less prone to bacterial/fungal infections. I'm a TC noob so I'll wait for more experienced members to confirm.

    Just spotted some germination on mine!! 24 hours after checking the seeds and almost half of them have green bulges or sprouts. Exactly a month from the sowing date.
