    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    I can answer number two. It took 6 weeks for my nep cuttings to root. They started growth before that though.

    I have had Nep cuttings take upto 4 months before they grew roots. Patience is the key with them.

    VFT cuttings usually strike in a few weeks but as long as there is live tissue I would leave it be.

    On a vft do you have to have the white tip of the bulb or rhizome in order for it to grow roots? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Yup, you need a piece of the rhizome more than the leaf as far as I know. In fact, you could just use a piece of the rhizome if you really needed to.
