I had posted a few images of Heliamphora seed on the Terraforums web site last month -- some sown in traditional composts of milled sphagnum and quartz sand; and others in Knudsen-C Orchid media. Germination took -- in both cases -- approximately four weeks.
Heliamphora sp. "Angasima" (?) 20.06.11
Heliamphora sp. "Angasima"
Here's a shot of a newly-sprouted Heliamphora seed -- approximately two days old -- suspended in a wad of Knudsen-C Orchid (TC) Media. Strangely, the seed was lagging behind those which had been planted in conventional compost on 16 June; and it is usually quite the opposite. There's always room for Jello . . . Heliamphora sp. Angasima -- 18 July
Here is a bit of progress since 18 July of my latest batch of Heliamphora seed. Though it is a bit difficult to see, cotyledons have already been produced. Heliamphora sp. "Angasima" 4 August
"Quamdiu stat Colisæus, stat et Roma; quando cadet colisæus, cadet et Roma; quando cadet Roma, cadet et mundus."
Here are the earliest signs of germination of a batch of 2012 Heliamphora seed -- some of which were sown in either mid- September or early October. The media, in each case 9for those few interested), was 2:3 Knudsen-C with 5.4 µM NAA (1 mg/L). Other species and varieties are also on the way . . .

plantguyty1: Does anybody need pollen? I have N. Miranda it's the first time it flowered for me so I do not know if its sterile or a good candidate. Is there anybody with an active female that would like to give my pollen a shot?

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.
