I have bought cheap Nepenthes seeds from ebay and Aliexpress and they were fake. Got my money back when I disputed. Sadly, no one checks the seeds, especially with Nepenthes, they are always completely different shape and size.

Now, I'm asking for seed photos before I buy and I rarely receive an answer. I was thinking about buying seeds from all of them, and then open a dispute, but I don't think that would make any difference.

Rant over. :)

Well, if there's someone from Europe that has any kind of Nepenthes seeds, I'd really love to try growing them from seeds. If someone has too many or won't be able to start growing them before they are fresh, I'd love to sow them. I will eventually purchase them from an online carnivore plant store if no one has them, I'm just waiting for the weather to get a bit warmer so I can purchase live plants as well. :)

PS: sadly I only have Drosera capensis seeds to trade at the moment. Typical and Alba. If you need those, I'll gladly send them over. I should also have D. spatulata and D. spatulata Fraser island by summer :)

I think I would rather find someone closer to Europe. You offer a lot of seeds, I actually don't need that many if they will germinate. I would also prefer Nepenthes plants that can grow in a bit less humidity. I don't think I'll be able to supply it with more than 60% RH. A bit easier in the summer though..

Thank you for your offer :)

I think the seeds are already 3 months old. When you consider the shipping time also takes up to a month, there's a really low chance we'd get any seedlings in the end. I gave up. :)

I think no one has fresh seeds of plants inside from Europe so I'll just wait a month or two and buy some from official shop somewhere.
