    Unhappy

    I'm going to be receiving some unknown/unnamed Nepenthes seeds and I was wondering how you would go about handling this?

    Should I treat them as an intermediate until I can ID them? And what's the viability of neps seeds stored at 4c?

    Whe you plant the seeds plant the ASAP they aren't good after a ong periodof time(seeds). Put the seeds on the mix of perlite ad peat moss, don't bary the seeds.

    Make sure the seeds mix is always wet but not soggy or sponge like you know. Then keep the seeds in 75-82*F and humidity 82%. Then you should see something in a Month. Remeber keep it under grow lights.

    Phil,

    The seeds i'm being sent are 10 months old stored at 4c the entire time. What's your opinion on the viability? I'm still thinking it may be up in the air without knowing what type of Nep it is. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    I think they are to old. I read some were that if you have seeds that are over 6months old then they are of no use. But it is still worth a try. Were did you buy these seeds from or who did you trade.

    I believe it was triffid nurseries. No idea what they were, but he said that he's had them for about 10 months at 4c. Hmm, can't hurt. I guess we'll see what happens.

    Anything I can do to increase my chances?

    Hmm, I was actually wondering what would happen if I soaked the seed for a day in superthrive. Thanks for the help Phil.

    Btw, what did you mean by:

    Remeber to mix the superthriev correctly and what I ment was that the light should be really good and the temps to be really high so the seeds would thriev. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] good Luck
