Do these look like sarra seedlings to you?

    Your nep looks healthy enough, they can take a while to settle in , do you know what variety it is ? . Some will need special requirements to thrive whereas others will happily live on a windowsill.
    I would say that's just grass sprouting in your sarra seeds unfortunately , seedlings look similar, usually two leaves push through but they're thicker than what you have pictured, quite often the seed husk will still be on top.
    I have some seeds germinating now, I'll take a pic mate.
    I usually find germination of sarra seeds takes 3/4weeks from sowing .
    I can probably find you some seeds if you want more.
    I can

    Think your right about the grass,just looked at my other plant pots and similar shoots are coming up.
    This looks more promising though.Seed still on top.

    I will happily buy some seeds later in the year when I can go through the stratification and sow them at a better time.Just a bit of a trial to see if I could get them to germinate with these.
    The nep is a side shoot of my mums plant,will get some pics in the week.
    Ordered a book called savage garden so may be able to Id it from that.

    That does look more like a seedling mate!
    The savage garden is a cracking book, was my Bible when I was getting started.
    I have several seed pods just laying in the mother plants pots, been out all winter so will be ripe for sowing, I'll happily send you some for free.
    I've added the pic of my seedlings just to clarify how they look mate.

    I've never really ' stored ' seed but from what I've read an airtight container in the fridge seems the usual method for most species that aren't classed as ' tropical', such as nepenthes and Mexican pingulas, heliamphora etc....
    Seeds are slow to get to maturity, vft's and sarras roughly 3 to 4 years, personally I'd sow as many as you can as soon as you can mate.
    Good luck matey !
