    I hope it is a nepenthes. Even as a seedling...after the first two leaves, the little tiny plant should have immature pitchers at the ends of the leaf. The plant should have many pitchers before it is an inch tall, as the leaves lay flat near the soil medium while they are seedlings. Good luck.

    I think it may need more light. All of my Nep seedlings put out pitchers on every leaf.
