    It depends on the species, as Nepenthes seed is not identical across the genus. Many species have long, thin seed with a visible swelling in the middle, which is the actual seed embryo. Some species, however, have shorter seeds without distinct swelling, for example, mirabilis and thorelii. Pervillei has different seeds again, but it is still open to debate whether this is actually in the genus as it is not cross fertile with any other species.

    Realy? Pervillei is not cross fertile and could be in a genus of it`s own? Thats cool! Have any photos\links to photos of this plant? Is it known wether the reason is because of uncompatible chromasome counts?(and if so has someone colchine treated some seed to produce crossable pervillei?).Are the physical differences in this plant enough to warrant seperate genus classification?

    Are there other non-cross fertile Nepenthes? This is interesting stuff Thank you for sharing Hamish(what a neat name for a Nep enthusiast).
