Emailed! (it'll be probably 1-3 days before they respond) Here's their website just in case you're wondering http://www.ferociousfoliage.com/index.html I'm probably the exact opposite of you. I have the headset that "Throw em in the water and see if they swim"

On their website, they have the option to send hardened off plants. Idk if you would want to do this though because of shipping costs. I would, personally, youtube it on how to harden off plants in-vitro.

Yeah, I'm the opposite of that lol. Where on their website does it say that they harden off plants for you? Is it more expensive?

You’ll find it under the prices tab at the top, 3rd paragraph. I mean it looks like he’ll do it for free, you just have to pay for the extra shipping cost because of shipping the extra paper towels/LFSM.

Just a heads-up; CZPlants has sold numerous mislabeled seeds in the past, so I very highly doubt that those rare Nepenthes species are legitimate. In the off-chance that they are correctly labeled, they are almost certainly of poached origin. Two my knowledge, horticultural N. rajah seed has only been produced twice, for instance, and I don't know of any occurrences where seed of N. rigidifolia, N. diabolica, and N. klossii has been made in cultivation.

... Also, hamata and diabolica do just fine in tissue culture. Any seed available of N. erucoides is most definitely of poached origin as the species was only described in 2019. In fact, a large poaching event took place several months/years ago that seriously hindered the population.

Yeah, unfortunately pure (non-poached) Nepenthes seed is exceptionally difficult to come by because of their dioecious nature and the ridiculously large blooming sizes required by some of these species (e.g. bical). Ton.sunya on Instagram regularly sells many different greges of 100% horticulturally produced Nepenthes seed, mostly lowland stuff. Recently Jeff S. (@nepenthesgod on IG) produced some pure N. edwardsiana seed that he was selling for ~$100 per seed, iirc.

Ikr not even worth the time and effort. So that just confirms it: they're selling 5 seeds for $20 and Nepenthesgod is selling 1 seed for $100. Definitely fake or poached then
