    Hard one, since there are quite a few, but I think that the ceph I brought back from the dead and grew out to full size in less than a year takes the cake....


    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    The cutting actually split itself! I just made some fine hairline incisions, as I've seen recommended before. I take two diagonal slices to get a V-shaped tip on the cutting, then make incisions on all four sides to break the outer layer of tissue. Different clones seem to have different preferences; some of my cuttings produced more roots from the edges of the cut than the incisions.

    Nice job on rooting!
    It isn't about never killing a plant, it is about rolling with the punches, responding quickly and saving as much as you can. Any time I change my set-up, alter conditions or "improve" anything, I have to re-learn what to "tweak" based on the plants response.
    By watching their reactions to any changes, and responding to what you see, we develop a subtle communication with the plants and understand their language.

    Good Growing!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    I think mine is Nepenthes alata "spotted form". This was one of the first CPs I received, 5 years ago, as an unrooted cutting. It's been with me through 6 moves, 2 knee surgeries, countless newbie growing mistakes. From a wimpy little cutting that almost didn't survive, it's now almost large enough to take cuttings from.
