Hey so I wanted to see what you guys think of my situation here. I started growing Drosera Intermedia 'Temperate' in December and they started producing tonnes of flowers and even more seeds from April to now, I've also stratified some seeds to grow even more Intermedia, but now, all of a sudden, I'm getting baby Intermedia seedlings (from unstratified stray seeds) throughout my pots and since these plants are in Miami, they rarely see temps below 85° so they couldn't have stratified naturally, why do you think these have been able to sprout? Is it possible that I've had a mutation in my plants? I've since tried to plant some more Intermedia seeds without stratifying them and after a month, they have yet to show signs of life.
I'm not sure of the exact way the seeds do this, but they can sprout or go through a stratification period. I think it is more related to the season in which the seed sets. Perhaps they produce less dormancy hormone when the seeds grow in the beginning of the season?
These are some really bad companies, all shells of Plantron Inc., so don't order from them unless you want small and dead plants they don't want to refund:
Farmer Seed and Nursery
Four Seasons Nursery
House of Wesley
Richard Owen Nursery
How do garbage companies like these stay in business, ripping people off year

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.
