    Rooting 'Predator'

    Anyone have experience rooting a 'Predator' cutting? Just curius how easy/difficult it may be.

    And before anyone asks the answer is "No"

    I was given a small basal cutting of N. 'Predator' a couple of months ago, and there is no sign it has rooted yet. It is still green, but there has been no leaf growth. I would have expected at least some growth by now, so I would not classify it as easy just yet.

    I have it in a cool terrarium with 80%+ humidity under 4 tubes of cool white T8 bulbs. I am attempting to root it using LFS.

    I don't know about x. 'Predator' in particular, but if it's anything like hamata, it could take a long time - I've heard of hamata cuttings returning to normal growth and pitchering before putting down any roots at all. Hopefully the truncata will speed things along, but I don't know much about propagating truncata.

    ive been told hamata is fairly easy to root and truncata is difficult............maybe 'Predator' splits the difference

    I should think that the whole "hybrid vigour" thing would help somewhat.
