    New plantlets emerge from the base of the leaf itself where the rhizome is, correct? So has anybody tried just cutting a piece of the rhizome and planting that instead of removing a leaf? Seems to me that would work. I will have to try that [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Larry,

    Actually there is a technique called rhizome cutting where you remove the growing end of the rhizome and pot up sections of the remaining rhizome. I have never tried it so I can't offer any more pointers but I recall from Slack's books that you can cut a notch into the rhizome before dividing it and that will often promote dormant growth points to start.

    Oh yeah! I read about rhizome cutting many times, somehow I didn't connect that to this. I think that would be a better way to do it. I'd hate to sacrifice a good pitcher leaf when all is needed is the rhizome. In the book, it looks like they are cutting the underground rhizome. I want to cut into the exposed part of the rhizome and of course spraying the wound with some fungicide. That way I don't have to to dig it up.

    That sounds like a good plan. Let us know how it turns out.
