    Nepenthes attenboroughii seeds germinated!

    I received these attenboroughii seeds from Jeremiah on Saturday, November 17 and sowed them the next day. They are in a propagation dome with a heating pad underneath to keep the temp near 80F during the day and dips down to about 76F at night.



    Almost 2 weeks later!!!!







    Also tried some in TC but nothing yet.

    Start raising cows....they need something to eat when they get older.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Nice! In a few years, you'll have tiny little plants that you can sell for a few hundred dollars each!

    In one liter of distilled water, 1/3 strength Murashige and Skoog with vitamins, 2 ml PPM, 1 ml BAP, 25 grams sucrose, and a little more than 5 grams of agar. I soaked the seeds in a solution of MS+PPM for 3 hours before plating.

    Yeah... I was surprised they germinated so quickly. I was expecting more like a month or two, if at all. How are yours doing?

    Not even sure if they will make it that far. Lol I've read that they are difficult to grow out. We'll see...

    I want to thank Jeremiah again for making this possible.
