    Hi,
    I have a couple of unrotted cuttings that arrived prepped(cut and pre-dipped, ready for sphagnum) that are looking a bit limp. They have been inserted for a couple of weeks in baggies. Do any full leaves need to be cut in half, or ....does the inserted end need to be re-cut?
    Any ideas?
    Can you tell I have not had a lot of experience rooting cuttings for all my 25 years of growing, lol?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    I don't much on cuttings, since I never attempted to try a cutting. But here are some links that could be helpful


    Pictorial tour

    Yet, another pictorial tour

    The best way imo is to go to search and type in cuttings or basal shoots, and search in only the nepenthes forum (obviously :P) and remember to put from the beginning.Also, I think you are suppose to trim the leaves to cut down on humidity.

    We can go for days without food, but we can't pass 5 minutes without air. REMEMBER TO BREATH!!!

    Trouble breathing? Let me know.

    If the cut end looks brown, I would recut it. Also try misting the leaves a bit to raise the humidity and make sure the sphagnum is nice and wet.

    When I do cuttings I put the pot with the cutting in a bag and twist tie the top shut. It helps reduce transpiration.

    Not necessarily, you don't want to recut a callused over cut end, it makes more work for the plant and takes more energy out of it.

    They are in sealed zip-lock bags, so the humidity should be 100%.

    Cheers,
