    Are the nodes always visible? One of my N. miranda has these little elongated bump things coming out between every leaf, but all my other neps don't.

    All nodes are visible. It's where the leaf meets the stem and those bumps are just waiting to sprout in case the apical meristem is broken off.

    So if I broke off part of the ones where I can't see them will it die?

    I don't know what you mean by that...

    If you whack off the top of the plant, one or more nodes below where you cut will activate and grow a new vine. No guarantees of course, but I've never heard of a node not activating eventually. On an old, woody vine a node can activate it's self, too.

    Cindy,
    So, are you doing one node cuttings 1.5-3" long? Did I understand that correctly?

    Cheers,

    Joe
