    Rooting a heliamphora flower stalk

    An ignored experiment done in July 2013. I thought it looked too green to have have done nothing. Imagine my surprise

    Very interesting. If it starts making leaves then it will be really cool.

    Frankly, I'm not surprised you were able to root it, as every genus I've tried this on had some sort of 'success', but I wouldn't have considered it possible with the Sarraceniaceae.

    makes sense if you can get pitchers to root. why not the flower stalk. actually got part of stem there. Next question is if it will start making a plant from dormant meristematic tissue. Very interesting.

    How about rooting a heliamphora pitcher (rootless, wombless, open at the bottom)?

    It's not going to work if it's just a pitcher with the bottom removed. The leaf base is where the roots and leaves will emerge. That little bit of rhizome is what is needed to get the roots and meristems.

    Nice black magic Jen,
    My one attempt was still alive a year later, but no roots.... I finally just pulled it.

    similar appears to work with some of the Sarracenia species like purpurea. I am wondering if it would as well with darlingtonia.....
