    My N. veitchii has out grown his space in the terrarium, so I cut a 12" piece of vine last fall after he produced two basal shoot. Today I took the cutting out of the tank to begin acclimating him for life in the window. While taking him out I noticed Some odd growths, he seems to be growing roots along the back side of the vine.





    Roots are poking out at 7-8 different spots along the vine. Starting from the base and stoping about 4-5 inchs from the top, and only on the back side of the vine.

    Thought it was interresting and worth sharing,
    Chris

    That's a nasty little puppy. Though, I don't know what it might be. Could be a dormant node like what glider said.

    it looks like the start of roots, i know that can happen possibly a dormant node... on Any kind of plant you try to root in water you will se growth like this that will get white... could be trying to grow roots... I dont know why. I know My christmas cactus did it when i didnt give it enough water trying to get it from the air... Nice MAcro Shots any ways...

    Cheers

    Maybe you could mount the vine to a piece of bark. Just an idea...
