I was looking through the last series of nepenthes seeds I have put in vitro,
and would like to float following;I have the impression that cultures which
are contaminated by fungi germinate faster or at a larger rate than the "total
sterile" ones. Am I looking at something similar as with orchids? Something
for the specialist (Jan maybe?) to ponder upon.As far as drinking nepenthes
fluid, you might as well add the white stuff from n. lowii and pretend you
have a tequila :-).John De Witte
