Money was sent on the 6th. Mine should be here any day then. I thought I ordered earlier than that lol. I hope holly gets hers soon. Do you think these need stratification?

Nepenthes seeds dont need stratified. Plant asap. Just sow on lfs. Make sure to microwave media and let it cool before planting and using saran wrap so that algae and fungus doesn't overrun your seeds and for humidity is a good idea. Sprinkle them on top of media and make sure that the embryo in the center makes good contact with media. I find spraying with distilled water helps with this. I have mine on a heating pad for germination to because these are lowland seed.

I soaked mine Image. I'm going to spray them with maxsea. I'm going to spray literally everything with maxsea Image. Every plant and every seed lol.

I have to go look at mine now. I split mine up between peat/perlite, Live lfsm, and dead lfsm. Curiosity's sake.

I had some fungus growth despite nuking the media in the microwave and isolating very well so I highly recommend checking. I sprayed some fungicide so there should be no issues.
