I recently received seeds of a very special hybrid of N. rajah x N. "rigidifolia". The N. rigidifolia is the Leilani rigidifolia which is known to not be the true species. Nonetheless this hybrid is sure to be a knockout. Here are pictures of the two parent plants. I do not claim rights to either of these photos.

The rules are simple. You must provide proof that you have grown Nepenthes from seed before by posting a photo of the plant/plants you have grown from seed in this thread. In your post also add your username to a numbered list.

Don't be that guy and cheat. If I suspect you are lying you will be disqualified. US Only please as I don't have permits to export.

The winner will be chosen at random on August 11th at 10pm. The winner will send me an SASE and I will send them 50 seeds of this potentially incredible cross.

Good luck to all!

I don't have current pictures but I have 3 attenboroughii sprouts (forming ticker leaves now, bigger pitchers) that I've had since I think December and I have about 50+/- other various sprouts, mostly ventricosa but also some hybrids. If you need pictures I can get them to you. They're all in my seedling tank.

Here's an N. attenboroughii very freshly sprouted lol (some time in January I think)...

EDIT: If that doesn't qualify me enough, I wouldn't be offended if you disqualified me. I'm certainly not an expert at growing Nepenthes from seed but I've never failed getting them to sprout and get at least a few except with old seeds from eBay lol. I recently transplanted the attens and they're doing amazingly better... They're the oldest Nepenthes I've ever grown from seeds. :)

This sounds like a cross too good to be true! here's my most recent success with Nepenthes seeds:

A species batch made with another member here, N. ventricosa. Among my other successes include N. rafflesiana, ampullaria, beccariana, jamban, jacquelineae..... well, you get the picture.....

I have grown a few from seed. Lost my attend due to GH watering incident, but I started a thread and it shows singulana x vent I currently still have. I also have tow other crosses I've started and have growing but their name escapes me. Thanks for the great offer!!!
