Nepenthes seed Info

by HarrisAz » Fri Jun 11, 2010 12:47 pm

just wanna tell u guys some info about neps seed.i only know some and im gonna share all that i know

Duration of growth
How long does it take for the seeds to germinate?[/color]
The seed will ussualy germinate after 3-4weeks been put in its may take up to a year to only germinate(for wild neps)

How long does it take to get mature?
It will take longer than a venus flytrap,around 4-5years.(almost the same as sarracenia)

Conditions for a seed to germinate

Does it really need humidity to make it germinate?

Yes,it needs at least 70-80% humidity.its best to germinate them in a Terrarium where u can mist it my gathering the plants in one place.

Do it need direct sunlight?
No,it will burn the seeds.give it partial sunlight

about watering,just let the medium moist and if the seeds were attacked by fungus,theres no hope for it to grow.and for temperature dont let it reach to 10degress will be fine in temps around 20-37degress celcius.

if i got wrong,correct me.sorry for the bad english.

I hear there is a low germination rate in Nepenthes seeds, and that they are usually started in a peat mix.
