    I am currently attempting a ventrata cutting in a vase of water. I "notched" the bottom of the stem. It has been about a month I don't see any roots, but the leaves are still green and new nodes are slowly be produced. It takes time...

    Just as a general question, how long take on average to see the roots apear on the cuttings?

    N. Albomarginata, N. Ampullaria
    N. Bellii, N. Bicalcarata, N. Rafflesiana
    N. Sanguinea (Orange Pitcher), Cephalotus Follicularis
    .

    First, checking for root growth means digging the cutting up, which I do not recommend. If it still has any green, it still has potential. I've had cuttings start leaf growth anywhere from a few weeks to 6 months after planting a cutting, the latter being an extreme example involving an N. albomarginata cutting put in highland conditions.
