Germination of

Nepenthes ventricosa

Ventricosa Pitcher Plant: Tropical Pitcher Plant, Monkey Cup, Nepenthes

Nepenthes ventricosa

Nepenthes ventricosa: Nepenthes ventricosa seeds should be sown on the surface of a moist, well-draining soil mix. Cover the pot with a clear plastic bag or lid to create a humid environment, and place it in a warm, bright location. Germination can take several weeks to several months, and may be erratic, so be patient.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
