    Tweaked Nepenthes seedlings

    Coffee on seedlings/seeds may invoke prepubescent hungry seedlings. All new seedlings have pitchers emerging before the dicotyledons emerge. One sprouts has a pitcher forming upside down....






    At least there are novel observations to be made

    How is this salad going? Those microgreens get much bigger?

    I'm purchased some seeds off ebay. They haven't even arrived and I'm ready for adult pitcher plants already. Wanted a reality check and some hope also

    And for good luck.

    Old thread...looks to me like all the cotyledons are more than visible at the point pitchers are forming...

    Question

    @pokie22 did you fertilize the seedlings or water the seeds with coffee while sowing?

    (my seeds arrived today ...)
