I have grown almost all carnivorous plant species from seeds. But the one that has taught me the most patience is nepenthes. Unfortunately I lost the tag for these so until they get some characteristics helpful in their identity, then I present N.noid babies

"The Chosen One"

At some point I gave up on seeds and dumped 'em all in the live Spagnum growing around my lowland area. Only one seed sprouted - this flytrap. When I took some moss to use as topdressing after a repot I discovered it.

My Valentine may only be four days old, but he’s already reaching out with those lovin’ arms! :D He’s a D. spatulata pop. S2, courtesy of evenwind via the seed bank, and he is my very first CP ever!
