    Nepenthes stems

    I know that Neps are a "scrambling" plant. If one were to force a branch to grow along the surface, would it sense that and send out roots?

    I've got this one long stem, with its leaves cut off, due to burning. I'd like to do something constructive with it!

    If you leave it alone a node should activate sooner or later.

    A node should activate? Meaning it will send out new basal shoots? The reason I ask is I have the same "problem" haha. *not trying to steal your thunder here jimscott*

    "Carnivorous Plants of the World" by James and Patricia Pietropaolo has some information on ground layering Neps if I remember right.

    That book is written by a poacher. I don't recommend anyone buy it. It also has bad misinformation (not that there's a good kind of misinformation lmao) and even says that wild collecting is OK. Don't buy it, unless you want to support a poacher.

    I've got one in the basement somewhere. Parents got it for me when I was six years old


    Edax, that doesn't necessarily mean a basal will form. A new rosette could form anywhere along the stem.

    Yeah, I think it's pretty much common knowledge that the book was written by someone who is less than scrupulous. That being said, the book still has information about groundlayering. A resource is a resource. I didn't say the book was gospel...
