    campanulata a pain to root - but won't die

    Ok, this is weird. I am trying to root a campanulata pup - it's been about a month (I know that's early, but wait, there's more).

    There is not a HINT of root developement, BUT the cutting is pitchering!

    What's up with THAT?

    Isn't it true that some species won't produce roots sometimes, but live completely normally?
    I think that it's usually epiphytes though.

    Seeing the similarity to oneself, one should not use violence or have it used.

    schloaty,
    I took a cutting from my N. campanulata by mistake thinking that the stem was turning brown. I used pure perlite, allowing the water level to drop before topping up to 50% again. The cutting rooted in less than 3 weeks, under florescent lighting for 12 hours each day.

    Hey Dave,
    The pup I got from you is pitchering just fine. I figured it had rooted?
    It seems quite happy so I won't mess with it.

    yeah I think neps can absorb water through there leaves so if it had leaves and noi roots it could still get water if it was humid. plus cps get therte nutrient frominsects not the soil so a nep cutting pitchering before forming roots isnt that bizzare.
