    H. minor cutting question

    I recieved some H. minor today (THANKS!). Unfortunantly (maybe not), a few of the small, immature pitchers broke off the ryzome in shipping. Can they be rooted? If there is a chance, please give me instructions.
    Thanks.

    Did they break off in a cluster of pitchers, all meeting to a point? I have not been able to root single pitchers, but I have kept them green awhile.

    Regardless, I would treat them like a cutting; high humidity, cool temps, medium to bright light and wrap the base in live long-fiber sphagnum moss (LFS). I would keep the moss damp and not wet, because you want the cutting to seek water by putting out roots.

    Three were single pitchers, 2 more were multi pitchered. Should Rootone be used?

    I've had varying success with getting single-pitchers to root.
    Rootone probably wouldn't hurt.

    In general when I break something off on accident, I just stick it back in the pure peat that the parent (or, uh, clone-source) is growing. Normally this provides some shade for the "cutting." If you've got rhizome, there's a chance!
