I was given nepenthes seeds awhile back, they were fresh and I sowed them... they never came up... until today I found that maybe 7 or so have came up... I'm so happy, I had to tell someone.. now I just have to see if I can raise them to adulthood

Four months isn't bad. I've heard that 1-6 months is normal, and some can take even longer. The only seeds I've had germinate so far (N. sumatrana) took about a month and a half. Two other species (N. bicalcarata and N. naga) are going on 3 months now without any signs of life though I have no idea how old the seeds are.

Seems like once you somewhat forget about them and stop looking they do something... but that's so darn hard to do for me.. I flipped my moss around and found these maybe an inch under the moss, idk if that had anything to do with it or not though
