I love the fatty pitchers! But how does one go about transporting nepenthes from Thailand to Cali? Can they be mailed safely? I would want to bring them on the plane with me...and then not be allowed to board.

I will leave all my plants at home with my parents, but will bring some seeds with me.

Neps seeds characteristically have a very short "shelf life". Their viability doesn't last long.

Nepenthes seeds will hold out in cold storage for up to a year, so just use an ice chest or cold container to hold them in transit.

Nepenthes are easy to grow from seeds. Only the literature for growing them from seeds make them sound impossible. Actually seed grown nepenthes are more rewarding than growing the tissue culture retards most places sell. The real truth comes out after the tc plants flower and you have all sorts of defects and deformities that you wouldn't want to pass along to future seed-original plants.

Seedlings when fertilized with a regular dilute soluble fertilizer, develops their traits and progresses much faster.
Even seedlings produces multiple pitchers with excellent coloration and form.

Remember tiny seedlings cannot absorb nutrients through their teeny pitchers and is hopeless for nutrient absorption. They MUST rely on their natural root system to obtain nutrients to develop into a healthy productive pitchering plant.
