No luck so far but I'm hopeful :)
Hey Everyone :),
As you probably know by now that I like to challenge myself with growing new and different things. I am in an Orchid and Carnivorous plant stage in my life. Well for now anyways.. I have a LOT of things on the go but that's where I'm focusing right now :)
I recently purchased some seeds from EBay for a few varieties of Nepenthes (a.k.a. Pitcher plant). the seller I purchased from is "albermarlesounds". Here is a photo from the the sellers page of one of the plants just as a reference if you have never seen a Pitcher plant before.
Time to Plant my seeds
I filled the containers with Peat moss. Make sure that there is no fertilizer added to the mix as it will likely kill your plants. Then make sure to moisten the soil with rain water or distilled water. You could also use finely chopped sphagnum moss instead of Peat moss or Heck mix it up and use a combination of both :)
CHECK OUT THE SEEDS I BOUGHT!
Notice the large seed pod, The actual seed is that small dark bit with the threats on each end. I spread them out evenly over the surface of the peat moss, each seed variety was given its own container so i know what is and isn't growing. With the tip of my finger I ensure that the seeds have firm contact with the soil. I then watered them in again to really make sure that the contact was made and to add moisture to the seed and hopefully start the germination process. Look at all the seeds sprinkled on the soil surface. COOL!
I will put them on a heat mat and make sure that they get some light. I will keep you posted on the progress of these seeds.. My fingers are crossed that I have some success.
Happy Growing :)
