    Yes, yes, yes. I see this thread hasn't had a reply in 4 months; however, I thought that this would be a relevant update instead of creating a new thread.

    I have further support of Cindy's suggestion. Today when I was watering my Nepenthes I noticed not one but two basals growing on my N. 'Medusa'. The plant is leaning a lot, as the pictures will show.



    And the basals:

    This is such an odd coinsidence this thread has been revived, I recently received a good sized (6-8") N. aristolochioides and the growing tip had been snapped off during shipping. Remembering this thread I repotted it on its side hoping to promote good basal replacement growth. Luckily it was quite easy to do since it was rather long and viny already, sometimes with tighter rosetted neps its harder to get them to bend over to thier side.

    I see your paltry 2 basals, and I raise you 4 more. You can't see them all in this pic, but there are 6. Check out this alborgy:

    I posted a thread somewhere on "Forcing Basal Growth" on Nepenthes (either on this or another forum) a few months ago. You can elevate the pot, as I do, and even set the pot sideways, so that the apical growth is below the root ball. It only takes a week or two, and basals pop out like crazy, even on those plants that are normally difficult to produce basal growth under normal conditions. It also helps assure that your plant has some growth to push in the event that you want to remove and reroot that long woody stem. - Rich

    Rich - I remember reading your thread, but couldn't find it. It must be on another forum. Maybe you could find it and post it here, too? I'm thinking a sticky with links to various ways to induce basals would be a good feature.
