pretty hard or impossible I would say at that stage as they are still so young, they not producing their true pitcher yet until they get bigger. A lot of Neps pitchers look like those at that stage.

@Gwilherm1207, they look nice and healthy bro! Impressive, I love to see seed-grown plants. I tried once, I processed some nep seeds from a guy I met on a forum but not one germinated. I think the seeds were much older than he made out, as I know they don't stay viable for long and it was not normal to have 0% germination.

I have more than 30 baby neps today, for hundred of seeds sowed. the latest are N.northiana ,N.Tobaica and N.mirabilis ( i put a label on the pot :p )
many seeds newer germinated, a part died at a very first stage ( highland species as i was not aware of the requirement )
the most surprising was the n.northiana as they was removed from the germinating zone of my installation ( too many time without result) and i was suprise to see few months after ( not on optimal condition) 7 tiny plants ( on a set of 10 seeds)
2 years ago i was not aware of the nep requirement, i lose less seedling now , but germination rate depend of the species and the age of the seeds
