    Just repotted in pure live sphag in my nice, clean giant cube tank with all of my other seedlings. They were at the stage where they had a 1cm single root. Most of them at least. One of them I THINK will definitely make it, it looks super vigorous. Big leaves, growing quick.

    When mine get that big I'll just sell them on eBay for like $7,000. At this rate, the prices are bound to climb even higher. Especially when people are paying $500 for 1/2cm plants...

    Don't be too quick to replant the seedlings. Nepenthes have notoriously piss-poor roots during early development; and I've kept many seedlings in the same containers for upwards of two years or more . . .

    I repotted them yesterday... The look fine today. I wouldn't have repotted them, but their old pots were full of mold and stuff.

    I don't disturb/pot up seedlings until they are a year old, at least. As Dave said, they have weak roots at that stage.

    Well too late now... But as I said, the pots were growing mold, so...

    They took off since the repot! Putting out larger leaves and starting to make bigger pitchers. All three are doing well. Will be for sale on eBay in 2015 for $20,000 per seedling. (That was a joke... Haha...)
