    Buying Seeds

    Thank you I would think it would be in the interest of the hobby to have a reliable list of sites were you can buy seeds so you can have more diversity in the hobby

    Buying Seeds

    We're does everyone buy there nepenthes seeds from what are the safe sites or do you buy of other members . I would like to try to grow some from seed I think it will be more satisfying than just buying a plant .

    First sowings

    Yes they have been stratified for about 2 months but could not wait for winter to sow them .one of the reasons for asking about germination is I bought some VFT seeds from a dodgy site on eBay (China) and they did not germinate just went to mush straight away .hopfully these seeds will be ok thanks ada

    First sowings

    Just sown my first sarracenia seeds , Sarracenia Leucophylla White Pitcher . Being my first sowing hoping for some advice .There sown in Irish Moss peat and perlite they have 14 hrs of artificial led light and a temp of 23.2c the peat mix will be moist .They are sown on the surface of the peat mix . When do you think I will see signs of germination with these conditions. Or do you think they need to be in a propagator for more humidity not a novice to sowing seeds as we grow our own veg but a novice to CPs.
