Neat! How many inches is that pot?
They sure are jiffy pots.Originally Posted by [b
I decided to try these pots out. Once the plant gets established, think how easy it will be to repot into a nice pot. Just drop the whole jiffy pot / plant into the new pot without disturbing the plant at all. No repotting stress.
I set up a small terrarium to place the division into.
The pot my plant is growing in is only a 4" pot.
I've never heard of these "Jiffy Pots". Can plant roots just poke right through them into the soil?
I suspect if you keep them in moderate humidity and out of strong sun, you'll be fine w/ your divisions. Since you drastically altered the root support system for each piece, you will probably see a number of the pitchers/leaves wilt away (before new smaller ones show up). To help this 'equalization' process, you might want to reduce/trim some of the top growth to reduce the stress on the plant...
Good luck with all of your babies ...

When I take cuttings of my neps, I cut any leaf in half that is on the stem to reduce the amount of water evaporation out of the leaf. I was wondering if I should do the same with the ceph.
Since many pitchers where drying from the lack of being able to pull water from the soil, I trimmed most of them off.
I will see how this works.
I'm still asking myself if it was the right thing to have done. Wish I would have had room to place the plant into a larger pot.
Hi Steve, how are the babies doing for you now? Mostly fostered out?
All but one found new homes.
This is the one I kept.
