    PhissionKorps :
    I will see what to do.
    Now the Nepenthes is in the terrarium at the bottom in order not to take a lot of light.
    The only substrate that I know that releases something is vermiculite, but I don't think you were thinking about that.

    Ilbasso :
    It would be kind if you could post here another post of your Nepenthes in question...after 5 months....so we can all see its progress.Could you?
    Here is a photo taken today of my plant!
    Bye!

    Very nice! Mine is much smaller, but there are several plants in the pot and I think all have tiny pitchers on them. The larger pitchers looks like the one in your photo-the lid isn't up all of the way.

    I will try to remember to post photos later

    red ampullaria basal propagation

    Hi ibasso,
    you can take small basal cuttting as small as the pot on the right.


    My example on the bigger Basal cutting. Put into rooting on 07.07.2007



    checking and rooted as at 24.08.2007




    old leaves were still crappy.


    showing the developing new leaf from 10.9.2007 to 29.9.2007. Old leaves recovered and look fresh and healthy.


    Now i had another red ampullaria. I will post once it bears pitchers.

    Having never removed a basal...are there no roots at all on the shoot? I thought each basal shoot would begin its own roots whilst growing next to the parent. If I were to remove one, it would have to be rooted just like a stem cutting?

    there's roots if you uproot the whole thing, and slice the stem in half with a razor blade separating the basal and getting some of the roots for it, and some for the main plant

    While clipping dead leaves, a shoot came off with no roots. What are the odds that it'll take? I dipped it in rooting compound and treated it like a cutting.

    I got a tc "judith finn" it had a leafspan twice the size of a quarter offshoot,
    I removed it and 2 or 3 months later after I removed it and stuck it in lfs & perilie in the same pot now it has a root I think what helped is that I kept the plant low to the moist lfs so the plant was nice and humid.

    ilbasso, treat it like a normal cutting and you'll probably have good success. In the last 2 years or so I've only lost 1 cutting.
