    Ping leaf cuttings

    During November/December period when the weather is cooler and more humid, I like to repot my Pings and take leaf pullings for propagation. This method worked well for me last year so I am repeating it. ^_^

    These leaves were pulled off on 8th November 2007.





    This is how they are now.
    A leaf cutting that is producing plantlets. The end that was orginally attached to the plant is not brown.


    Closer look.


    Another leaf cutting that is producing plantlets.

    Two plantlets, each with its own root.

    The potting mix is pure perlite and live sphagnum moss.

    The green ones are P. emarginata x moranensis. The reddish plantlets are P. 'Sethos'.

    Where are the heart-shaped bloodworms! Joseph Clemens once said that the combination of LFS and Perlite is a good one for Mexican pings because it provides both moisture for the roots and drainage. I just can't remember which should overlay the other!

    Awesome pictures!

    As an experiment, a couple of months ago I took a few P. 'Sethos' leaves and placed them on the top of some LFS in a couple of Nepenthes pots. As advised, I just left them alone and ignored them for a few weeks. They have REALLY thrived for me and have done much better on LFS than in soil.

    Great pics and good method to propagate.

    Thanks for sharing, Cindy!
    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.
