    I had Nepenthes seed germinating after 2 weeks and I had some species germinating after lots of months. Seems really to depend on species (or altitude/growing habitat) and freshness.

    Cheers,
    Jan

    I wish I have that kind luck you have experienced, on this batch Jan! Only 12 more days for a period of 2 weeks. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    All the seed that I've grown from this female parent has taken a bit longer than other species to germinate, around the 2-3 month mark.

    My N.ventricosa "red" x "green" from Steve germinated in just under 1 month,now they have formed nice little rossettes around 1\6 in in diameter They grow a new pitcher about once evry 2-3 weeks.

    The seed I sowed in mid-February has just started to germinate, so it's just under 2 months for germination. Everyone who got seed from me in Trent's first mail-out should start to see some action pretty soon.

    Nothing yet Hamish, but glad to hear this shouldn't be too long of a wait!

    The second batch of seed I planted that would have been sown at the same time as the first batch from Trent has germinated, so you should be seeing something now. Germination rate seems to be pretty high.
