    Bugweed's 24-hr method

    Has anyone tried Bugweed's 24-hr method on pings, especially mexican leaf cuttings? If so how'd they respond?

    Here's the topic, only he does it from seed. But I'd like to try it on cuttings.

    Gather around anyone who wants to listen!!!!
    My "secrets" to getting large mature plants in less than 4 years. Growing sarracenia seed from some on this forum, think it is hard. Maybe if you are going through the dormancy way of growing, but here's a SUPRISE!!!!! Sarracenia are really easy to grow and maintain, year round, for 2 years. All you need is:
    1. Seed heating mat with thermostat.
    2. A container for holding water.
    3. Seedpaks with many little pots!
    4. Incandescant or flourescent light bulbs.

    Whew! Glad I got that out! I fill the seedpak pots with straight Canadian Sphagnum Peat. I place them in the water tray, and keep it full, filling when it reaches the halfway mark. Water container sits on top of the Seedling Heating Mat. Mine is set @ 80 degrees. I have already striated the seed. Simply lay the seed on the soil surface. DO NOT BURY THE SEED!!!

    When the seedlings sprout, just leave the lights on 24/7. This has no affect on the seedlings except to help them grow. Sundews cannot live in the 24/7 lighting, so don't try it and lose your plants!!! However, sarracenia seedlings go absolutely nuts, and continue to grow. I keep them in this situation for 2 full years, no breaks! The lights I use are Reveal lightbulbs, daylights, 100 watts. They never sleep! The plantlets can be as tall as 12" by th end of the 2nd year, 16" to 24 " by age three. I have one now belonging to Tony Paroubek that is ready to be shipped this spring. It is only 2 years old, the rhizome HUGE, and budding! Not even 3 years old yet, and budding! By the third year, seedlings HAVE to have a dormancy, or they may die. It is easy, and rewarding, and takes the drudgery out of winter. And you can do this all you want, all you need is seed. So do not discount growing seed, just learn the easy way, and lengthen your growing season to all year long!!!!
    What I'm trying to figure out is if the use of the word, 'striated' is supposed to mean cold stratification, prior to perpetual light and 80 F heat.

    Yes, 'striated' is Bugweedese for cold stratification. He has used the word 'striated' interchangeably with 'stratified' in the past.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    LOL, oh and minus the stratification and heat pads. Basically grow them like the adults w/ 24/7 lighting. That's also what I took it to mean.

    As you know from Biology class, as in striated muscles, that's an entirely different word and denotation! Anyhoo, all verbiage aside, if it works, then I'd try that approach.
