S. ( x godzuki ) x ( x extreme unction ) is so far the fastest set of seedlings I am raising. By fastest I mean pitcher production after initial germination.

Great pictures and congrats on the seedlings! I do not think I am going to renew my membership in 3 days so I unfortunately will not likely see the fruits of your labor down the road (Unless you happen to frequent one of the other forums I do), but I do wish you the best of luck and hope they grow well.
I have an S. x 'Godzuki' in my collection. Very nice cultivar. Never heard of S. x 'extreme unction' but I will be looking it up. I wonder how this cross will turn out.

Thanks for sharing!

How long do you suppose it will be before they make a reasonable sized plant? You have more patience than I do. Looks like you got good germination rates too.

I suspect I'll have 3 inch plants by this time next year but normally it takes 3 years to obtain decent sized plants. I'll show my current growth and sizes possibly Sunday.
