    or even better! if the vine is long enough, wrap a ball of moss around the stem and plastic wrap it till you see roots then cut the vine, then you get another cutting!

    Looks like most of the newly formed roots I have seen on nearly all of my cuttings (the point of growth produces strange looking growths before the actual roots start emerging). If this was my plant I would make as many cuttings as I could at all of the points just below where these roots are starting to form.

    I know they are roots, but this is the frist time I have ever had roots form half way up the vine on a cutting.




    12 inch vine with 24 inch leaf span in a 5 inch pot

    two shoots in the orginal 8 inch pot

    and just for fun, some dried pithers

    The dried pitchers are still in good shape. The peristomes look like gold on my screen.

    Hi there:

    that's very interesting!. you can cut your plant further and most of the cuttings will survive. (at least in theory)

    That's if the nodes activate. I've had cuttings that have grown roots, but have died after a few months because the nodes never activated.
