What would make this seedling collapse? It was the first to germinate from this seed pod. It’s been growing for about two weeks. Then it collapsed. Any ideas on triage ?

Unfortunately, Damping Off is a problem for Nepenthes seeds, and I think that is the problem. Unfortunately, there is nothing to do once they seedling has succumbed.

Thanks, I hope it doesn’t spread to the other pots. This batch is taking two months on average for germination. The seeds were harvested in August, I started/bought them in Early October.
