    Those look like the nep seeds I received several weeks ago, N. mirabilis. I'm still waiting for them to germinate. They are kept on a south facing sill, saturated and covered. Nep seeds, from my limited experience (1) look like small tan-brown twigs. They don't even look like seeds. Sarracenia seeds (all two types that I have had) look like small tan-brown grains of sand. My S. alata took several weeks to germinate.

    Hi all:

    One easy way to tell is to pick up the green portion of it and pull it gently out of the LFS, if the other half looks like those thin, brown tiny sticks characteristic of Nep seeds, yes you are right. They are nep seeds germinating. You can them place it back in LFS very gently. I've done that to my germinating seeds to rearrange their relative position in the pot and they are doing fine. Just be gentle with them.

    YAY!!! it is the nep seed growing [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    i looked at it, and saw the Y kinda of growth shape shown in neps.
    im not sure if it is Lowii or mirabilis, because i sowed them next to each other and maybe some got into the others growing space.
    i soed them last sunday, i think thats the fastest time nep seeds have germinated [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
    jkin, some1 must have done it faster, im just a noob [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Seriously, you're a better man than I! I have failed in my passed two attemts to germinate neps. 'Cource I have two more attempts currently with bicals (thanks Pyro!) and also lowii (thanks Wildbill!).
    One week is the fastest I've heard of. You are one lucky so and so.
