more seed sowing queries

Hibiscus seed themselves everywhere here, I would just sow them in a pot now and leave them outside over winter, unless the temperatures drop very low. They should germinate well in spring.

I know, Nepenthes is not a garden plant, but I hope someone here knows: my Nepenthes is racing towards the ceiling, but isn't producing new pitchers! Is this normal or am I doning something wrong?
