Can we see some of your seed grown nepenthes from ebay? And which reputable sellers did you purchase from? I've been looking for a source myself.

Check some of the FB trade/sales pages, they occasionally have seeds for sale.

I bought mine from ebay also yes they are expensive recently Last week I bought 6 seeds from Spain for 5 bucks and 50 seeds from Florida for 5 bucks cheap in good price. The one out of country sellers likes to charge high price for couple of seeds and it's a bummer. 2 weeks ago I bought 10+ seeds for 8 bucks from canada to test my green thumb for Nepenthes. When it arrived I immediately sow it on sphagnum moss before leaving to edc. When I came back it germinated.

Here is a similar thread about ebay sellers, it's a good read with suggestions by experienced growers:

I do ask questions to the seller before purchasing it. few of my seed successfully germinated from what I bought from ebay and even the drosera seed I got from Mike successfully germinated also. So in ebay I do ask and have them send me pictures of the seeds with name and date written on the piece paper to confirm they are real.
