    Those appear to be a sarracenia seedlings. Further evidence is that it took less than six weeks for germination, which is almost unheard of for Nepenthes.....almost

    No doubt in my mind that those are sarracenia how odd though that they popped up

    Those are undoubtably Sarracenia seedlings. Are you sure the seeds you planted were Nepenthes ? What did the seeds look like ?

    Concur. I have had ventricosa seeds take one year to germinate.

    Just to play Devil's Advocate, these Ventricosa Seeds didn't come from a giveaway on the forums some months ago did it? Most people, myself included, had germination within a couple of weeks!

    You can't load photos here. They need to be hosted elsewhere (photobucket, flickr etc) and you can link them here into your thread.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    indeed they did. For the past few years I have been sending seeds to Exo to give away here as well as to the ICPS seed bank. Grown indoors at 78-80 F germination is rapid. Outdoors where my night time temps can drop down to the 30-40 F range in winter and 50-60 range in summer it has taken as much as a year to see germination.
