    Nepentheceae is one of a few poachers on ebay. Be wary his ads say he will falsify customs forms marking packets of Nepenthes seed as "craft supplies", which in turn makes YOU (the buyer) into a "smuggler". If detected by the post office or Customs, a smuggling charge will gain you many hefty fines in the range of thousands of dollars. Since you're an underage kid it doesn't mean you get off scott-free, it just means your folks will be on the hook for those fines.

    I wouldn't buy anything from ebay unless it was from a well known honest seller, there are PLENTY of places in the US to pick from with many variety's. I wouldn't waste my time buying seed when you can spend more and buy a SEED GROWN plant that you know what it looks like. More expensive but well worth the money.

    Lets not go firing on a new member based upon his username, everyone starts somewhere, i agree its a brassy name, but its their choice when they sign up.

    I would be very leary of wherever these seeds are coming from as well, lots of good ADVICE in this thread already.

    This eBay merchant is renowned for selling old seeds that have very poor germination rates (ie:zero). Roll up a bunch if dollar bills, walk to the bathroom, stuff the bills into the toilet bowl and flush with a big smile on your face; the results will be the same. Well, except perhaps the part about potential consequences re: smuggling threatened species.

    Is this Falcons?. . . .

    Just because you can work with Nepenthes cuttings well doesn't mean you can grow Nepenthes from seed. This requires practice. Besides, most of the seeds you've decided to buy are from very old batches that were released a long time ago. You'll be lucky if you get only a few weak seedlings.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Reef Central? What is your username on there? I have an account on there and Nano-Reef. Maybe I know you.
