Does anyone know how to do nepenthes from seed in TC? I can’t seem to find a reliable source.

I have a zero % success rate with the seeds. I have only ever gotten meristem tissue to work. I can tell you that, in my experience, using PPM to sterilize Nepenthes seeds will kill them just as fast as ISA.

Bump? I don’t think that many people have experience with this. I’ll also open this up to from foliage too.

We also use 5% bleach. Times range from 5-8 minutes. Using a few drops of surfactant such as Tween20 with constant aggitatation will increase success. Process small batches of seed at a time, in multiple vessels.
