    It was that time to do some surgery on my N. ventrata.

    Before the cutting:


    Helper:


    It does not really look like I did much to the N. ventrata. It will not be long before I have to cut the other vine, 6" from the ceiling.
    After the cutting:

    How old is that plant gecko?

    I need to do that too. I wish I had a good use for a 4' ventrata vine. I don't feel like boxing up 20 seperate cuttings, so I usually just find someone with a greenhouse who'd take the whole bunch to root them, forget about them, and sell them as full plants a year later.

    glider14,
    I bought the plant late in 2003. It had 2 growing points and was in a 6" hanging pot. I repotted the plant shortly after I got it to a 14" hanging basket.
    It has been cut before.
