    photoperiod for strikes

    currently i can't test/find this out for myself but would making strikes benefit from a 24h photoperiod? thinking there are no roots to store energy so.....no need for nightime?

    i keep it going 24/7.Makes sense what you are saying. I know some other plants 20 hour light periods are better for cloning. Cant remember why though

    Sixteen hours of light is usually sufficient; and there are some genera, including Nepenthes, which can even benefit from periods of darkness . . .
