    adnedarn's N. ventricosa seed giveaway update post

    Hello everyone!
    I'm wondering how @Grey Moss @CoolCapensis @jaje61 @Qloxwa2 and @Mawy_Plants are doing with their seed from my giveaway. I did not sow mine until everyone announced they had received theirs and I noticed today I have germination. I did some where it was cooler and some where it was warmer and I definitely have better germination where it is cooler. Also, it looks like the seeds sown on LFS has had a better germination rate (so far) than those on a different media. (All pots are in sealed 1 gallon bags out of direct sunlight)

    Mine haven't shown signs of germinating yet, but I got back a few days after they arrived so I was a bit late to sow them. They should start any time now.

    I just checked mine and I can't see any sprouts yet, but they for the most part still look clean. One pot I have in a warm-ish terrarium so maybe I should move it to a cooler area with some of the rest.

    They look beautiful! I'm getting my hopes up for any day now.

    Really this is the first time "making" Nepenthes seed... So I was a tiny bit nervous that I may send out dud seeds. I'm glad that's not the case.
    I do have some sprouting from my warmer area, so I don't think they won't sprout there maybe just a little later. I'm not going to move mine to the cooler area just yet (although I too was tempted!)
    Thanks for the updates.

    I have germination!! At least two have tiny leaves just emerging, both in the same pot on a bright northern windowsill. I left the pot (I mentioned before) in the terrarium, and moved some of the others to another bright northern window.

    Wow, it was worth the wait!

    Here's about as good a picture as I can get - they are so small. So far I see two healthy-looking cotyledons... How long before true leaves appear?
