    question about nepenthes seedlings

    Hey everyone‚
    So I'm doing my first attempt at growing neps from seed. I sowed N. Ventricosa seeds in the beginning of December and started seeing germination halfway through January. I have been looking online at photos of NEP babies and can't find any that look like what I have. All of the seedlings look identical to seedling sarracenia. Is this normal? All of the photos that I'm finding have little hairs at the pitcher openings. While every pitch I have looks like a sarracenia. I do know for a fact that they were nep seeds and would appreciate any feedback you can give me.

    I'm gonna guess that you somehow received a mutation between Nepenthes and Sarrencenia and you will have a cultivar named "Dr Who." You will sell that mutation to a bunch of vendors and be rolling in the dough as the kids say. That or you don't have very good conditions for the neps and and they're trying to reach for the lights or something.

    Api may be right. The seedlings may be etiolated due to lack of light. Pics do help immensly though.

    those look like my darlingtonia seedlings or some small sarrs i would geuss there must have been sarr seed in that soil.
    check the base or the seedlings if theres a nepenthes seed coat on it its a nep if theres not its probably a sarracenia
