I've been told that Nepenthes does not require dormancy. Therefore I would assume that the seeds do not require stratification.

Spaced out the seeds on top of moist LSF. Container partially closed using transparent cover to increase humidity to 80%. Keep it at 25-32C at bright spot, but out of direct sunlight. No stratification. Fresh amp seeds should start to germinate in 2-3 weeks. They loose viability fast. 2 month old seeds have less than 50% germination rate.
