    Hey Kev,

    I'll be following this thread closely as well, my first Attens have germinated this weekend! As BigBella and Iwest have noted, I too use a shallow tray method and do not top water in fear of washing the shallow rooted seedlings away. I probably should have boiled the sphagnum because mold has been a problem for me. I've been very successful with other Nepenthes seedlings without having to treat the sphagnum in any way. But these prove to be more susceptible to mold in my case

    Great work there Jeff I must say boiling the peat made all the difference because I have had no problems with mold o even algae. I'm currently up to 17 seedlings out of 23 and I'm sure the rest will germinate too.

    Nep seedlings should sit in water untill they are at least 2cm across in my experience

    When I germinated my jamban seeds, I had some sprout many months after the fact. The last sprouted I believe almost 8 months after planting... I thought they were long done when I check on the larger ones and suddenly saw one more tiny green sprout. The other seedlings were already over an inch across.
