This morning I began to build a suitable seed-box. I used two different levels of white plastic boxes in A4 size for it. As substrate I had unfortunately left little peat, so I had to improvise and mixed with coarse ground bark chips from orchid soil and white perlite. The whole was thoroughly mixed with water and straightened. Then I sprinkled about half of their seeds on the ground and covered it with the other box half and put it on our balcony.
In my room I made a small 10x10 cm pot which is covered with foil. This pot is near on my windowsill in the room. I'm wondering how long it takes until the first plants to germinate and which pot is faster.
Here I have here the exact species Description:
Nepenthes rafflesiana "wing tendril alata with brown speckled colour"
Seed Origin: Indonesia, Singkawang area, West Kalimantan
Age of seed: 1.5 months, sowing on 24/03/2011
